Manufacturing Companies always targets to meet high production with best quality. Design is one of the main process in manufacturing takes more time and delays in delivering the product. To overcome this challenge, manufacturing companies started to practice design automation because of its improved efficiency and productivity.
Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is the process creation, modification, analysis, or optimisation of a product’s design. CAD automation automates the process of making drawings and 3D models with more accuracy in less time. In other words, CAD automation helps engineers to do the work in few minutes, which usually takes few days to complete.
Automating entire drawings and designs can reduce more design time and leads to optimised design accuracy. It will also automatically generate manufacturing data, drawings, and Bill of materials (BOM) based on the requirements. Faster design process without compromising on quality increases company’s productivity as well as profitability.
Automation made major impact on manufacturing companies. CAD automation has many advantages, some main advantages are
- Improved productivity
- Reduces delay in delivery
- Improved profitability
- Less workload
- Reduce time-to-market
- Optimised design accuracy
Will CAD automation applicable for all projects?
Most probably yes. Experts says 80 percentage of project needs CAD automation based on their repeatability and requirements. But still 20 percentage of projects which are new to market and have complex design need engineers.
How NC tools can help in CAD Automation?
Yes, we have few solutions for this question.
NC tools can offer you few Automation software such as FLUX BEND, Smart Door Frame, NestingWorks, Edge Works, etc., and few are in development stage.
For example, NestingWorks can reduce so much of the production time and material usage by automating the design.
And Smart Door Frame contains pre-loaded database of door frame profiles that can produce long and tedious door frames within seconds by using automation techniques.
Flux Bend can convert the 3D sheet metal part in to 2D drawing within seconds by unfolding it automatically.
Automation seems to be never end and people want to take automation further and add more to it.
