Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM)
Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) is the use of software and computer-controlled machinery to automate manufacturing processes. CAM software converts digital designs and models into instructions that control the operation of machines, such as lathes, mills, routers, and grinders. This automation allows manufacturers to produce complex and precise parts with high accuracy and consistency, while reducing production time and costs. CAM systems are commonly used in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and electronics manufacturing, where high levels of accuracy and efficiency are required.
