Why CAM Has Changed Product Manufacturing CAM and CNC machines have changed the way that products are manufactured and have made a massive difference to many businesses. With a range of benefits, CAM is the only option for every business looking to manufacture their own products.
Tatnell Engineering Services can provide all clients with perfect products, creating bespoke designs tailored to your needs. What Is CAM?
CAM, or computer-aided manufacturing, is used to design bespoke products, using computer numerical control. CAM is used for many machines in CNC engineering to create the exact product that you require. No matter what materials are required or the scale of each product or project, CAM can be adjusted to create what you need. CAM systems will do all the work for you, aiding in: Creating Optimising Verifying
It will create, verify and optimise all numerically controlled programs and machines to ensure the correct product is always created. CAM software and machines are available to create products for any industry, using many materials and being available for any product creation.
Accuracy & Speed
CAM manufacturing must be used for every product and every business should be using this software. As CAM offers much-improved speed and accuracy to any other options, it is the best choice when beginning your product creation.
As CAM uses computer numerically controlled software, accuracy is always guaranteed. No matter what you design, once the numerical values have been input, your final design will always be created to match your vision and the product you wanted created. As you are not creating the products yourself and a machine is doing the hard work for you, products can also be created much quicker, with less hassle.
If you are looking to create similar products efficiently, CAM machining must be used during manufacturing. CAM will allow previous products to be saved, allowing you to easily reproduce the same products over and over again. This makes a massive impact, as you no longer have to repeat the same process to make your desired product.
As no errors will be made, once the numerical controls for one product have been created, you can reuse this, knowing that no errors will occur. This helps you to create the same bespoke component or product as many times as you require, without it becoming a time consuming or frustrating process.
Before using CAM machines, you can design your product using CAD, computer aided design. This allows you to completely draft every component and product you create and ensure all measurements,
materials and styles will be correct. Once this is complete, you can simply use the same numerical controls to receive the desired design, created by the machines.
You will be able to fully plan and create your design from start to finish. By using both CAM and CAD, you create a more enhanced and streamlined manufacturing process. As both these processes involve CNC engineering, they can be used to create completely different and bespoke shapes.
Additionally, errors are reduced as the software will identify any problems that could be caused by incorrect design. If material or sizes do not calculate correctly to create the product you want, you will be warned beforehand so the wrong product is never created using this software. Contact Us
