Why proper Mastercam Training is A must

Many Companies rely on the Mastercam programmer to learn as they go, even though the Programmer can do this it will take him a very long time before he will become efficient. Mastercam is always talking about getting training at the dealers where the company will buy the software and this can also be helpful although the trainer in some of the dealerships may not have any experience in the trenches, from a book it looks good but that's it. The other downside is the 4 days for training may not even touch on the parts you make. Programmers need to see how the Mastercam Products are going to work with their parts they make. On-site Mastercam Training is one of the best ways to accomplish this, the training will not take as long if you see how mastercm works with your parts.
Steve has over 20 years of trench hardened manufacturing experience. He has worked as an applications engineer and in technical sales working on a variety of projects and specializing in mold making. Steve is passionate about the need to train programmers at their facilities, using their parts and on their machines. He has turned this passion into Engineering Solutions Services, a company offering real-time, on-site training solutions and high quality multi-media educational CDs. With over 10 years experience in Mastercam training and post processor writing and programming, Steve offers you the very best in Mastercam training. Contact Steve At 847-356-3287

What Is CAD/CAM?

To answer the question about CAD/CAM, Cad is computer aided Design or Drafting, this can be from architectural, manufacturing etc.... CAM is Computer Aided Machining or Manufacturing, usually a offline software (Mastercam) that is capable designing and programming parts and compiling the program language through what is called a Post Processor into CNC language, Computer Numerical Control. This allows a manufacturing company to efficiently manufacture or make the parts with the offline CAD/CAM system and send the program to a CNC machine( Mill, Lathe, WireEDM etc..). Most of todays Manufacturing companies have to have this in place to survive against overseas competition. here at with our expert staff we handle many different types of manufacturing from plastic injection to motorcycle parts anything inbetween. Engineering Solutions currently handles education and programming services as well as Post processor editing. We do On-site Mastercam Training and carry Mastercam Training CD's in Multi-media video at
