The Next Step In Manufacturing: Industrial Automation

Lucas Leão

Posted by Lucas Leão Feb 15, 2018

Long ago manufacturing was done through skilled individuals to develop tools and items for selling, or bartering. These days the term artisan for developing such items has been replaced by industries setting up specific facilities to manufacture products. This is still the norm in today’s industry for developing consumables for customers. But, the next set in manufacturing evolution has developed the use in lights-out facilities. This also goes by the alias of industrial automation.

Posted by Lucas Leão Sep 27, 2017

What is CAD? What is CAE? What is CAM? What are these softwares and how are they different from one another? The first thing to know about all three of these systems is the first two letters in each abbreviation. “CA” stands to Computer-Aided, which means that all three systems are created to help the user to achieve his goal faster by using the power of computers for processing. The last letter for CAD, is Design, for CAE, is Engineering, and for CAM, is Manufacturing. These are engineering and manufacturing software programs. Each one is has its own purpose. The article will dive into a high-level look at all three systems and how they are used and their overall purpose.
