After engineering completes CAD and solid modeling to bring parts to manufacturing, machining operations can use the solid model as an input to the CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) software. CAM is the use of computer software to control machine tools and related machinery in the manufacturing of components. L.A. Turbine employs highly skilled machinists who utilize CAM as an advanced productivity tool allowing the software to simulate and visualize the machine operations and thereby optimize the process.
