Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM)

Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) commonly refers to the use of Numerical Control (NC) computer software applications to create detailed instructions (G-code) that drive Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine tools for manufacturing parts. Manufacturers in a variety of industries depend on the capabilities of CAM to produce high-quality parts. Manufacturers in a variety of industries depend on the capabilities of CAM to produce high-quality parts. Manufacturers also rely on CAM as engineers are able to define a manufacturing plan for tooling design, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) model preparation, NC programming, Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) inspection programming, machine tool simulation, or post-processing. With these plans generated, only then execution take place in a production environment, such as Direct Numerical Control (DNC), tool management, CNC machining, or CMM execution.
