Computer-Aided Manufacturing 1 Training System | Hands-On CAM Skills

Learning System: 96-CAM1

Amatrol’s Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) 1 Learning System (96-CAM1) teaches learners the fundamentals of part design and development using Mastercam software. Mastercam allows learners to design and draw complex shapes and parts on a computer. These drawings can then be utilized to generate a program to produce learner-designed parts using the CNC Machines 1 Learning System (96-CNC1). Major topic areas covered by this course include the CAM mill process, tool and material selection, CAM parameters, contour toolpaths, and much more!

The 96-CAM1 training system includes Windows-based Mastercam software, a custom tensile specimen fixture kit featuring an adapter plate, 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch end mills, and a supplemental disc containing various CAM design files. This system’s interactive eLearning curriculum covers major CAM topics and theory, which learners can then use to practice various hands-on skills that can then be used in real-world applications. This curriculum is full of incredible graphics, 3D animations, and interactions.

Learning Topics

  • Introduction to CAD/CAM
  • CAD/CAM Part Geometry
  • The CAM-Mill Process
  • Introduction to Contouring
  • Cycle Time Estimation
  • Tool and Material Selection
  • Cutter Compensation
  • Parameter Pages
  • Roughing and Finishing
  • Contour Applications
  • Drill Toolpath
  • Pocket Toolpath

Create Efficient CAM Toolpaths!

Toolpaths are one of the most important aspects of the CAM process. A toolpath specifies the path that the cutting tool will follow to create a part. They are used in industries to automatically program cutting tool movements because without them each movement of the cutting tool would have to be programmed manually. CAM software makes generating toolpaths easy. However, it takes knowledge and skill to use the software properly to create efficient toolpaths. Learners will study about a variety of CAM toolpaths, such as contour 2D, pocket, letters and drill.

Practice Hands-On Skills with the Tensile Specimen Fixture Kit

Understanding the abilities of the available tools is essential in creating an efficient toolpath. The tools must be precisely identified to enable the best possible CNC program to be generated. The tensile specimen fixture kit is a custom fixture that securely holds the material being machined while allowing the CNC machine’s end mill to cut along all four sides of the part.

Create Tool Libraries with Mastercam

The 96-CAM1’s curriculum allows learners to create tool libraries with Mastercam which catalogs the tools that will be used and includes information about the diameter, shape, number of flutes and the material that it is designed to cut. Tool libraries help designers to create a CNC program using the proper tools for the job and are used in industry because they make the process more efficient.

In-Depth Interactive Multimedia Curriculum

The 96-CAM1’s curriculum covers major CAM-related topics like CAD/CAM geometry, contouring, cycle time estimation, tool and material selection, cutter compensation, parameter pages, roughing and finishing, drill toolpath, and pocket toolpath. Learners can use this knowledge to practice valuable hands-on skills such as using the CAM software to display and print a CNC program, creating a part program using a contour toolpath, and designing a CAM part with a 3D contour. This curriculum is presented as highly interactive multimedia that covers all of the topics and skills of the printed curriculum in an exciting format that includes extensive videos, 3D animations, audio, and colorful graphics.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.
