CAD, CAM, CNC and Robots  = Manufacturing Automation

Manufacturing is an evolving industry.  Automation, manufacturing, off-shoring – all contribute to changes in the way products and parts are designed, developed and manufactured.    Fast, effective design strategies are essential for companies who want to keep up with the latest in manufacturing automation.

CAD refers to the design process and is described this way by AutoDeskCAD is the use of computer technology for design and design documentation. CAD/CAM applications are used to both design a product and program manufacturing processes, specifically, CNC machining. CAM software uses the models and assemblies created in CAD software to generate tool paths that drive the machines that turn the designs into physical parts. CAD/CAM software is most often used for machining of prototypes and finished parts.

CAM refers to the use of various software packages to create toolpaths and NC code to run a CNC controlled machine, based on 3D computer model (CAD) data. When the two are used together, this is generally referred to as CAD/CAM.
