There are 3 things required to enable accurate machining:
If any one of these is not accurately known, an adaptive approach is required.
In place of the traditional linear approach to machining from CAD to CAM, Delcam uses in-process inspection to make real time decisions about the machining process, making changes on the fly to ensure a quality part every time. This technology reduces setup times, scrap, and manual rework while delivering higher accuracy, process stability, and profitability.
