has opened a new CAD/CAM demonstration and training facility in Melbourne for companies that are considering adopting the technology for their processes.
Having a permanent demonstration and training facility helps companies who are evaluating the need to adopt CAD/CAM technology to reduce labour and save material as well as increase production capacity, quality and operational flexibility.
Pathfinder’s new CAD/CAM demonstration and training facility will enable company directors to discuss their current methods of production and see for themselves, the ease with which they can move to CAD/CAM production including digitising their shapes, nesting for best yield, and cutting their materials at speeds and accuracy unequalled by others.
The ability to quickly generate pattern pieces, nest the shapes for best material yield, and then cut automatically is the future of the manufacturing industry in high labour cost markets such as Australia.
The new CAD/CAM demonstration and training facility also aims to dispel inaccurate notions held by smaller manufacturers about the complexity and cost factor associated with the technology. More often than not, they are very surprised to find that these machines virtually pay for themselves with significant savings in labour and materials, and a dramatic increase in production capacity.
