Nothing is changing faster or more profoundly than the software used to design and machine parts. To help shops keep up with the latest competitive advances being introduced on the shop floor, here is a report on some of the newest CAD/CAM software.
And what drives machining growth? Aerodyn Engineering uses intuitive 5-axis CAM software from OPEN MIND Technologies that “gets it.”
These first-ever standards will help meet demands for skilled CAM programmers, designers and engineers that will account for almost 100,000 new jobs by 2024.
The purpose of the CNC Mill, CNC Lathe and CNC Technician contests at NLSC is to evaluate each contestant’s preparation for employment in CNC programming.
The software supplier will help Okuma customers fully apply the capabilities and efficiencies of 5-axis machining.
Shops are using this innovative CAM software to increase their machine tool productivity with more efficient toolpaths in more applications — and also to improve their own CNC programming productivity.
This new CAD/CAM application marries the power and functionality of parametric design with the robust and powerful milling capabilities of standalone CAM software.
Waveform turning, multiple machining sequence support, ribbon bar and interface updates, and the inclusion of Wire EDM are the newest CAD/CAM game changers that machine shops need to compete in a global economy.
