Increasing efficiency and profitability with effective manufacturing solutions, the CAMCAD team delivers big – immediately impacting your ROI.

Here’s how we do that:

CUSTOM CAM SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS

How can I increase my business and increase profit margins without increasing my overhead? How can I produce faster without compromising quality?  These are the questions all manufacturers ask themselves, and the very reasons manufacturers call CAMCAD Technologies, Inc.

Here’s our favorite question:  “How I can gain a competitive edge?” 

We love to solve the toughest manufacturing problems, and have a long track record of success.  In short, our solutions make you more efficient and profitable through the automation of some of your most tedious, repetitive, math intensive and record keeping parts of your manufacturing process. So far, we’ve never seen a problem we couldn’t solve!

When your manufacturing needs are so unique, that off the shelf CAM software won’t do the trick, call CAMCAD. Custom software solutions are our specialty. 100% of our clients agree, we have made their business run more efficient and more cost effective.  In fact, the ROI on some of these projects have been so good, the client considers the info “top secret”, those clients prefer we not share those successes.   However, there are many others that we CAN talk about.

Here are a few examples of the complex manufacturing solutions CAMCAD has delivered.

CAMCAD Custom Solutions Examples

EDIT-FREE POST PROCESSORS

CAMCAD customers know there is a big difference between a Post Processor and an Edit-free Post Processor, particularly on a multi-axis machine.  The difference shows up in time saved and larger profit margins!

For decades, CAMCAD has been configuring posts to support SURFCAM for our customers.  During this time, we have seen machines become more complex and demand more from the end user, and the Post Processor, to handle the complexity.  CAMCAD is so good, other SURFCAM resellers have turned to CAMCAD when their customers are looking for Edit-free Post Processors for their complex machines.

CAMCAD is capable of configuring even the most complex and challenging 4-, 5-, and 6-Axis CNCs for SURFCAM.  In addition, we can remotely configure a SURFCAM NC Code generator for most 2- or 3-Axis CNCs in just a few hours.

We encourage our customers to collaborate throughout the process to assure accuracy and continuity, and a complete understanding of the system.  As part of this process, CAMCAD develops a formal specification with the CNC machine tool distributor’s technical staff, in conjunction with the customer, to assure quality and accuracy.  This allows the customer to make future changes themselves as necessary.

CNC PART PROGRAMMING

CAMCAD has several highly experienced programmers with 20+ years experience with the expertise to tackle even the most difficult and challenging part programming requirements.  We work with our clients to develop the tooling, fixturing, and an overall machining strategy for one-off projects.

Examples:

camcadsolution1

This is a prototype engine component with 47 blades with 7 different blade patterns to minimize harmonics, very small fillet radii between blade & hub (.020″ radii on the blade trailing edges).  In addition, the whole component had to be machined out of a single billet of stainless steel.

Another one of our customers was experiencing the loss of programmer productivity due to illness. As a result, the shop was about to lose a key machining contract because they could not complete the part program in time to meet delivery dates. The part, an aircraft structural component, required multiple setups on a 5-axis mill machine. CAMCAD was able to provide Edit-free Part Programs to meet the customer’s very tight delivery schedule. Know-how was as important as quick delivery to this customer. In addition, CAMCAD provided detailed explanations of each step in the programming process, via a series of Internet web-conferences to the new programmer to assure his full understand of the programs.
