GNA University is a leading provider of CAD / CAM expertise. The University has an outstanding heritage of industrial excellence and offers superlative opportunities for learning. Our significance in the automotive industry worldwide enables us to assist students with hands-on professional training and placements in leading organizations and industries the world over.

CAD (Computer Aided Design)

CAD Is a system of automatically producing finished products by using computer controlled production machines.CAD and CAM work together such that the digital model generated in CAD is inputted to the CAM Software packages. CAD systems enable engineers to view objects under a wide variety of representations to test these objects by simulating real time conditions. It is an integration of Mechanical and Computer technology to aid in design processes like Modeling, Assembly, Drafting, Die Design, Tool Design, Sheet Metal Analysis of products and is widely used by engineers in fields such as Mechanical, Automobile, Production, Plastic, Aeronautics etc. to design and develop the complete product on the computer before actual production begins.

CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing)

Involves the use of Computer hardware and graphics software to generate design .Modern CAD equipment enables the designer to quickly produce very accurate and realistic images of products to be manufactured. In combination with CAD, CAM provides fully associative, integrated tools for product design. CAM uses the same CAD geometry to generate tool paths to ensure the part one machines is the same part that has been modelled. Tool path and machine simulation and verification in CAM help manufacturing engineers quickly improve CNC program quality and machine efficiency.
