HAMPSTEAD, N.H. - P. D. Circuits, Inc., specializing in delivering the highest quality PCBs, technical support, and service to OEM and EMS companies worldwide, announces that Mike Tucker, Technical Service Engineer, will hold a presentation titled “A Look At CAM Departments: How designs become manufacturing tools” at the upcoming PCB West Conference & Exhibition. The presentation will be held Wednesday, September 29, 2010 at 9 a.m. at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.


Ever wondered what happens inside a typical CAM department at your bare-board fabricator? Ever wondered why some fabricator’s CAM departments flag issues that others haven’t or don’t? CAM departments have gone through quite an evolution since their inception. Today’s CAM systems and CAM departments are critical for taking CAD data, ensuring manufacturability and creating manufacturing tools.


The presentation will provide a generic overview of a typical CAM department’s practices, methodologies and requirements. Attendees will learn rules-of-thumb DFM guidelines as well as what data, from designers, is required for fabrication. The presentation also will discuss what CAM departments do with data and the top reasons why jobs go on-hold at fabrication and how to prevent them.
