CGM Modeler as a Foundation for Automatic
CAM (ACAM) in Subtractive CNC Machining

Whitepaper Abstract

Over the last few years, the Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machining industry has been facing a dual challenge: a growing demand for machined parts and a shortage of qualified machine operators and programmers. With both issues, the demand and the shortage, getting worse, the industry needs a solution. Ideally, the productivity of machine operators would rise so that they could run more CNC machines. Then it would require introducing deeply automated machining, in other words, a move from Computer Added Manufacturing (CAM) to Automatic Computer Added Manufacturing (ACAM).

What You Can Expect From This Resource: 

  • What is Automated CAM and what does it entail?
  • What are the processes that need to be built to enable ACAM?
  • How CGM Modeler and 3D InterOp support ACAM enablement.
  • Model requirements for ACAM.
