Autodesk introduces 2017 CAM products for industrial manufacturing

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Autodesk is ushering in its 2017 Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) products for advanced manufacturing applications ranging from CNC mill- and lathe-programming to complex mould and die manufacturing. These products are claimed to bring users a powerful and unique experience, combining CAM software from Delcam with Autodesk’s 3D design and manufacturing solutions.

The CAM solutions include enhanced versions of FeatureCAM for automating CNC programming; PartMaker for precision part manufacturing with Swiss-type lathes; PowerMill for designing complex moulds, dies and other components; PowerShape for the design of 3D complex parts; and PowerInspect hardware-independent inspection software.

“Manufacturers need to iterate and innovate faster than ever before to stay competitive as the marketplace is redefined by a new future of making things,” said Mark Forth, manager of manufacturing industry strategy at Autodesk. “Autodesk’s new 2017 CAM products are designed to help our customers learn, improve and master advanced manufacturing techniques that ultimately lead to better designed and functional products being brought to market more quickly and efficiently.”

Next month, during the IMTS 2016 conference in Chicago, Autodesk will outline its broader vision and software portfolio to support manufacturers in this competitive environment. In addition to the technologies unveiled today, the company says it will also spotlight solutions for additive manufacturing, CAM, composites and more.
