Sescoi’s new guide examines cost benefits of automated CAM

July 6, 2009 - Sescoi’s new short guide gives companies essential information and advice to help them evaluate the risk benefits of automation when applied to CAM programming and illustrates the real cost benefits that can be achieved from switching to an automated CAD/CAM system.

Drawing from a wide range of sources, including CIMdata research which highlights the lack of trained engineers, the guide examines the benefits that can be gained through the lower levels of skill required to run an automated, rather than interactive, system. This can result in increased flexibility for workers, greater productivity through multi-tasking and shop floor programming, and the easier recruitment of new, lower skilled, staff.

According to the guide, by picking the best system, automation can extend from 2-axis right through to fully automated 5-axis programming while maintaining sufficient flexibility to address exceptional parts. It also reports on how automatic programming shortens lead times - 50% in some cases, encourages consistent manufacturing methods, rationalizes tool usage and raises quality standards.

When properly implemented the raft of benefits produces a very rapid return on investment and, because training, running and commissioning costs are low, the true total cost of an automated CAM system is significantly less than for an interactive one.

In the current economic climate, companies have nothing to lose from consulting the guide to see if they can apply the findings to their own businesses. Customers everywhere are demanding customized products, lower costs, higher quality and shorter delivery times. By combining automated CAM programming with flexibility using the principles outlined in the guide, engineers can ensure they are much better placed to meet these requirements.
