Impact CAD / CAM at all levels

The advantages of using a system with

Numerical Control
Industrial robots

The production cycle begins with an idea, a concept for

that product. This concept or idea is analyzed, improved,

approved and turned into a production plan through
engineering design.
The term Computer Integrated Manufacturing

for the first time in 1973 Harrington's book being used in
relation to the CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CAM
(Computer Aided Manufacturing).

Computer Aided Design is about using computer

technology in design and manufacturing processes. This

trend is growing stronger and tends towards ever closer
integration of design and production, two activities that
traditionally were treated completely separated in a
manufacturing company.
CAD systems allow increasing the partial areas of the

design for a careful observation of details and a possible

correction of errors. Checking the accuracy of a project can
be done simply on a graphic level before being
manufactuared .

Computer Aided Manufacturing can be defined as the use

of digital mainframe computers to plan, direct and control

the operations of a factory production through computer
interface with direct or indirect access to plant resources.
The main achievement of CAM is the numerical control

witch allows the control of industrial robots just by

following a defined computer pattern .

We can build physical machines which implement these

procedures and perform the calculations for us.

This process is completely mechanical, not requiring any

"human" judgment to complete.

The impact of computer aided engineering is a huge

tehnological innovation because this way we can gain time at a

huge scale production by using industrial robots and by
sketching the parts or the product in 2D or 3D modeling software
and simulating the effects on real situations , this way we can
correct the errors before we fabricate a prototype .
