Computer Application Areas in Textile industry | What is CAD/CAM? | Application of CAD/CAM in Textile Industry

Textile Industrial Application of Computers:
  • Use of computer at various management levels in Industry.
  • Use of spread sheets to calculate, Present and Analyze engineering data.
  • Use of different Statistical methods to analyze engineering data.
  • Use of Minitab (TM) software .
  • Use of different mathematical techniques to solve engineering problems.
  • Use of Mat Lab (TM) software.
The overall course objective is to provide the student with the background to understand and work withcomputer systems for data acquisition, analysis, display and control of Textile processes.

What is CAD/CAM?
CAD is the contraction which stands for Computer Aided Design and CAM is the Computer Aided Manufacturing. This term means different things to different people involved in designing, manufacturing and mechanical engineering.CAD or Computer Aided Design has brought a revolution in the Textile industry. The time consuming and cumbersome process of textile designing has been made easier by CAD. Now thoughtfull and innovative designs are available to the textile designers and textile manufacturers at the click of a mouse.

Application of CAD/CAM in Textile Industry
The textile designs are the original works of the designers. CAD helps them to visualize and see their imaginative design in final form without producing any sample swatch. Sometimes, The customers too provide ideas for designing according to their particular requirement. These are in the form of painted artwork or fabric samples and sometimes film negatives. The textile designers, with the help of CAD, convert them into workable designs. For this to be done, the sample is scanned with the help of either scanners or digital cameras and then they are edited to obtain the final design.

Computer systems used to design and manufacture products. The term CAD/CAM implies that an engineer canuse the system both for designing a product and for controlling manufacturing processes CAD is broad term used to represent use of computer in designing. CAM is term that denotes the computerized control of manufacturing process. Almost all industry sectors are using CAD in their designing departments. CAD can help to draw  textile designs for textile industry.

We should not confuse CAD only with drawings. CAD covers many aspects of designing like design calculations, dataanalysis and simulations. Commonly used software used for CAD are AUTO CAD, MSVISIO, Smart Draw etc.
