CAD/CAM and 3D Capabilities
We utilize CAD/CAM software extensively to program the CNC machine centers. Utilizing a sophisticated CAD/CAM solution provides significant benefit to our customers in regards to minimizing setup cost, generating efficient machining solutions for complex parts, and improved quality for packaging equipment and components.
Computer Aided Design (CAD) refers to a group of computer-based technologies which are used to develop, inspect and optimize engineered drawings. With the help of CAD developing every day, Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) is also on the rise. Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) is the application of computer-systems to the manufacturing environment. The combination of CAD/CAM affects the way manufacturing is handled and is improving the accuracy and reliability of process and productivity.
CAD software creates files that can be modified, enhanced and prototyped. Specifically, the creation of curves, lines and geometric designs are often referred to as CAD. Our software includes:
- Solid Works
- CAM Works
- Design Works
Having a CAD file of your prototype helps increase the productivity of a designer or engineer, while it improves the quality of your design for manufacturing or visualization purposes. Having your design in the form of electronic files will also be useful for future 3D printing or other type of manufacturing purposes.
We commonly receive part drawings in the following formats:
- .sldprt (and can accommodate other formats as needed)
We have years of experience using various materials including Aluminum, Steel, Stainless Steel, Brass, Plastic, Titanium and many more.
We are a turn-key operation which has developed many sources for the designing and manufacturing packaging equipment and components. If you have an application that requires capabilities not listed above, give us a call to discuss.
We work from your drawings or sample parts. Contact today for a prompt and precise quote on your new and existing projects.
