Three key benefits of CAD-CAM Engineering

CAD-CAM Engineering applications are for both the design and manufacture of products. When used together CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) provide a number of benefits, from increased precision to minimising waste.

1. Integration

CAD-CAM engineering software allows us to integrate directly with the CNC turning and milling plant. The close integration of the design and manufacturing process helps reduce the gap between the two processes. It also allows the machines to be used in the most efficient way.

At M-CNC, we use specialist software such as edgecam, hyperMILL® and Solidworks. These programmes meet the highest requirements worldwide for everything from aerospace to medical engineering, allowing us to program tasks perfectly and precisely. Which brings us to accuracy…

2. Accuracy

The use of CAD-CAM applications massively increase the control over the production process, which when used for CNC milling can mean a significant increase in accuracy. Our site (based in Bridgwater Somerset), is home to state of the art machinery and software which enables us to be accurate to .001 of a millimetre.

3. Time saving CAD-CAM Engineering

Using CAD-CAM engineering helps save time at every stage which means we can produce prototypes and finished products much more quickly for our clients.

The improved accuracy and time saving also has a fourth benefit: increased cost effectiveness (the benefit of which we pass on to the client).
