CAD, CAM and Verification
Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacture (CAM) software has been developed since the late 1950s and is an essential component of modern manufacturing. The term CAD covers a range of applications from 2D drafting packages to full 3D design packages with simulation and analysis tools.
Choosing CAM software: attention points
As a machining company, are you considering investing in a new CAM system? Then you'll certainly want to consider the following points of interest! CAM (computer-aided manufacturing), like CAD (computer-aided design), is done via customised software packages. There are some relevant aspects to consider when buying a new CAM system.

Operational Improvements through Simulation
Introduction to Machine Learning
You may have heard the terms machine learning and AI being used interchangeably, but what are they exactly? Machine learning is broadly speaking the use of statistics to make predictions, while AI is more concerned with behaviour (e.g. playing games (like AlphaGO), visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages).

Human-centered assistance system development in context of new work using Augmented Reality (AR)
Implementation of Predictive Maintenance
In today's production systems, machine breakdowns are very severe. They not only generate unscheduled downtimes with related expenses and dissatisfied customers, but they also wreak havoc with staff scheduling (additional shifts) and warehousing (additional storage), as well as quality deterioration (scrapped components) and subsequent machine warm-up periods.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Technologies in Additive Manufacturing
Robotic process automation (RPA) constitutes a set of software technologies that facilitates the building and deployment of software robots (bots) that mimic human actions when interacting with graphical user interfaces and other digital systems. Actions, such as opening a file, moving the mouse, filling in form fields, etc.
