Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) is one of the software automation processes that directly convert the product drawing or the object into the code design that enables the machine to manufacture the product.
It is used in various machines like lathes and milling machines for the product manufacturing purposes. It allows the computer work instructions to communicate directly to the manufacturing machines.
The mechanism of CAM developed from the Computer Numerical Machines (CNC) in the early 1950's.
The development of these machines considers the factors like easier programming in CAM and easy storage of programs.
A program can be changed easily and avoid manual errors. Numerically controlled machines are safer to operate, and the complex geometry comes at a reasonable price.
James T. Parsons proposed the concept of the numerical control operations during the year of 1948.
Automatic Tool Changer
IBM's Automatic Tool Changer in the year 1955, G & L's first production of the skin-miller in the year 1957, and the machining center developed by K & T have all been considered to be major developments to promote the technology with more benefits.
During the year 1967, the concept of developing the CNC machine was proposed. The existence and the major development of the CAD/CAM machines evolved during the year 1972. 3D CAM/CAD systems were introduced in 1976.
Expert CAM/CAD systems were developed in the year 1989. The major development of the CAM systems provides you with easier manufacturing of objects with high efficiency.
CNC Routing Machines
The word CNC stands for Computer Numerically Controlled. Earlier the professional craftsmen were making high quality products using hand tools like circular saws, hand routers, planers etc.
And it was so difficult job to do all the things by hand. Due to this reason it is impossible to deliver the products in time.
Now, the generation is computer generation where everything is happening automatically and people are so badly addicted with this automation system.
Computer Aided Design
Basically the software is used for CNC Routing Machines is CAD (i.e. Computer Aided Design). It helps to design the product then sends instructions to the PC controller in the routing machines.
The controller sends directional signals to the motor drivers and then the machine moves in response to create a finished design.
Now, there are so many companies providing CNC Routing Machines.
The growing complexity of customer requirements, new products and shorter delivery periods call for a manufacturing technology solution which is both flexible and efficient.
The new BAZ 700 gantry series addresses these demands with a whole new standard, combining high flexibility and high output for the first time in a gantry machine requiring a low financial investment.
The unique flexibility achieved by the series is made possible by modular based unit technology and varied equipment possibilities.
