Manufacturers have introduced advanced manufacturing techniques to improve and shorten the manufacturing process. The introduction of CAD/CAM has simplified the design process. The designers can create a 3-D image of a new board design, change contours and dimensions, print a finished drawing, and contour templates. This saves a considerable amount of time compared to the manual methods of building boards.”
