    Plastics extrusion is highly cost-effective high-volume manufacturing process with wide-ranging industrial applications. To achieve a high-quality product, it is absolutely essential to have properly designed extrusion dies in order to obtain the correct velocity profile and temperature distribution during extrusion. The article describes an integrated application of CAD/CAM and finite element ana... View full abstract»

    The article focuses on the embodiment of product concepts, a formal design activity in which it is proposed that computer-aided design (CAD) techniques can be effectively deployed, hence facilitating a simultaneous approach to the mechanical engineering design of products. It also shows that simultaneous concept development, through systematic procedure, is significantly dependent on multidiscipli... View full abstract»

    In 1983 the Electronics Industries Association published the standard RS-494, commonly referred to as BCL (binary cutter location) data exchange format. BCL is a means of standardising the formats for NC part programs. Its aim is to eliminate the cost and confusion associated with multiple postprocessors and enable the portability of part programs among different machine tools. The article gives a...

  • Using CAD/CAM in the design of a robotic micromanipulator

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):43 - 48
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (652 KB)

    The use of CAD/CAM techniques for the design of a micromanipulator is described. All design issues which addresses local and global objectives are analysed from the optimisation point of view. Computer simulations written in Fortran and APL, nd three large-scale software application systems, CADAM, CATIA, and CAEDS, are used to model, analyse and manufacture micromanipulator components. Both kinem... View full abstract»
