CAD/CAM Lab Infrastructure


The lab is aimed at giving exposure to and enhancing the knowledge and skills of engineers involved in the operation use of CNC machines, CAD packages and for those who want to provide training to others in this area. It gives exposure and on hand experience in the field of CAD/CAM and CNC machines, 3D printing, reverse engineering, Computer Integrated Manufacturing and Industrial Robots.

Main Equipment Available
1. CNC Lathe Machine
Lathes are machines that cut workpieces while they are rotated. CNC lathes are able to make fast, precision cuts, generally using indexable tools and drills with Automatic Tool Changer. It has Graphic simulation for product proving.

2. CNC Milling Centre

CNC mills use computer controls that are able to translate programs consisting of alpha-numeric codes to move the spindle (or workpiece) to various locations and depths to cut materials. It has Automatics tool turret with 6 tools and Graphic simulation for product proving.

3. 3D Printer

It prints professional-quality models at your desk. It’s as simple to use as a document printer, yet powered by FDM Technology to build spot-on, functional concept models and rapid prototypes in ABS plus thermoplastic.

4. 3D Scanner

A metrological 3D solution (reverse engineering), perfect for capturing 3D objects for CAD applications and captured images will be transformed to 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) models that helps in improving the designs without having CAD drawings for the existing products.

5. CAD/CAM Software

  • Catia V5
  • Creo (Pro/Engineer)
  • MasterCAM
  • AutoCAD
