Computer-aided manufacturing or CAM software converts computer aided drawing into dimensional code for manufacturing purposes. The CAM software controls the machine tool for milling machines in the X-Y-Z axes. Operators can control other aspects such as feed-rate and change cutting tool for smaller cuts using the CAM software. PDM software is used to group together CAD/CAM software in order to track and control all changes or modifications made to the product during its production phase.
Simulation software is used by design engineers to test potentially problematic parts before they are used on the job. All simulations are derived from a set of mathematical formulas, which take into account all material and environmental properties. Simulation software helps manufacturers reduce production costs by testing the products before they are actually built. Manufacturers in the aerospace or the nuclear industry use simulation software to test parts which can be potentially dangerous in actual use.
Industrial Embedded Computers
Industrial embedded computers are mounted directly onto machines and industrial equipment to perform computing operations. The embedded computer is in most cases a rugged and compact device which can withstand harsh industrial environments. Embedded computers will often use fanless technology to avoid dust intrusion and to avoid maintenance checks due to substances entering the computer chassis.
