CAD, CAM and Related Software

CAD/CAM Software is used to generate part designs and then CNC machining programs corresponding to part designs. Short for “computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing,” these systems create these programs for CNC machine tools. In general, CAM development has proceeded along two different tracks. Geometry-based CAM systems used in die/mold machining and other applications focus on complex milled geometries. Algorithms provide specific and efficient ways for machining complex geometries with both high precision and long tool life. By contrast, feature-based CAM systems are generally used in the production machining of geometrically simpler components.

Taking the Drag out of Automotive Machining Setups

Paired with the right cutting tools, workholding and software, multi-tasking and multi-axis equipment enables this race team to also bill itself  as a full-fledged parts supplier.

Feature

FEA for DFM

Shops that offer design for manufacturability advice can reduce customers’ machining cost and complexity. This shop leverages finite element analysis as part of its sophisticated DFM efforts, and this also helps in its efforts to establish long-term relationships with its customers’ engineers.
