“CAM Computer-aided manufacturing is also known as computer-aided machining and computer-aided modeling. CAM is completely integrated from computer two machine operating tools this camp process comes after CAD if the product has been designed on CAD that it will go for manufacturing and if the company will work on automated manufacturing with using CAM and CNC operating machine then they will required Computer-aided manufacturing process so this CAD model will be converted into programming like G code and M code and will pass through CNC machining and the play major role and the Computer-aided manufacturing software is the key responsible tool for whole processes.”
Our team also works on the manufacturing processes through CAM Computer-aided manufacturing so it depends on the client whatever they required if the requirements are under high precision and zero tolerance then always refer for manufacturing through CAM and the required quantity will be also in the bulk model so it totally depends on customer requirement. Where delivery in high-quality high-precision with zero tolerance in system products are delivering which competitive cost with the best of the relevant market. So Computer-aided manufacturing process is based on the customer to customer requirement but if someone is talking about the comparison from traditional manufacturing to technological and Computer-aided manufacturing so we will consult according to the requirement of their output product if they don’t need in bulk and the use of the product will be not completely related to high Precision then we always recommend for traditional it will also help for cost-saving and easy to deliver to the customer but the client required for high Precision and bulk quantity product then we always recommend for Computer-aided manufacturing processes which for not only in high production but also cost-effective due to bulk manufacturing.
CAM packages could not, and still cannot, reason as a machinist can. They could not optimize toolpaths to the extent required of mass production. Users would select the type of tool, machining process, and paths to be used. While an engineer may have a working knowledge of G-code programming, small optimization and wear issues compound over time. Mass-produced items that require machining are often initially created through casting or some other non-machine method. This enables hand-written, short, and highly optimized G-code that could not be produced in a CAM package.
“Over time, the historical shortcomings of CAM are being attenuated, both by providers of niche solutions and by providers of high-end solutions. This is occurring primarily in three arenas”
- Ease of usage
- Manufacturing integration
- Integration with PLM and the extended enterprise
Ease in use
For the user who is just getting started as a CAM user, out-of-the-box capabilities providing Process Wizards, templates, libraries, machine tool kits, automated feature-based machining, and job function specific tailorable user interfaces build user confidence and speed the learning curve.
User confidence is further built on 3D visualization through closer integration with the 3D CAD environment, including error-avoiding simulations and optimizations.
The manufacturing environment is increasingly complex. The need for CAM and PLM tools by the manufacturing engineer, NC programmer or machinist is similar to the need for computer assistance by the pilot of modern aircraft systems. The modern machinery cannot be properly used without this assistance.
Today’s CAM systems support the full range of machine tools including turning, 5 axis machining, waterjet, laser/plasma cutting, and wire EDM. Today’s CAM user can easily generate streamlined tool paths, optimized tool axis tilt for higher feed rates, better tool life and surface finish, and ideal cutting depth. In addition to programming cutting operations, modern CAM software can additionally drive non-cutting operations such as machine tool probing.
Integration with PLM and the extended enterprise
To integrate manufacturing with enterprise operations from concept through field support of the finished product.
To ensure ease of use appropriate to user objectives, modern CAM solutions are scalable from a stand-alone CAM system to a fully integrated multi-CAD 3D solution-set. These solutions are created to meet the full needs of manufacturing personnel including part planning, shop documentation, resource management, and data management and exchange. To prevent these solutions from detailed tool-specific information dedicated tool management.
