CAD:

Computer Aided Drafting is a process of preparing a drawing of an object on the screenof a computer. There are various types of drawings in different fields of engineering and sciences. In the fields of mechanical or aeronautical engineering, the drawings of machine components and the layouts of them are prepared. In the field of civil engineering, plans and layouts of the buildings are prepared. In the field of electrical engineering, the layouts of power distribution system are prepared. In all fields of engineering use of computer is made for drawing and drafting.

The use of CAD process provides enhanced graphics capabilities which allows any designer to

  • Conceptualize his ideas
  • Modify the design very easily
  • Perform animation
  • Make design calculations

CNC LATHE / CNC TURNING CENTER

CNC lathes are rapidly replacing the older production lathes (multispindle, etc) due to their ease of setting and operation. They are designed to use modern carbide tooling and fully utilize modern processes. The part may be designed and the tool paths programmed by the CAD/CAM process, and the resulting file uploaded to the machine, and once set and trailed the machine will continue to turn out parts under the occasional supervision of an operator.

The machine is controlled electronically via a computer menu style interface; the program may be modified and displayed at the machine, along with a simulated view of the process. The setter/operator needs a high level of skill to perform the process, however the knowledge base is broader compared to the older production machines where intimate knowledge of each machine was considered essential. These machines are often set and operated by the same person, where the operator will supervise a small number of machines (cell).
