The main problem for academic institutions wishing to offer courses in Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) has traditionally been the cost of the appropriate equipment.

To supply an industrial CIM is out of the financial reach of the vast majority of colleges, universities, and training institutions; and so to facilitate the teaching of this complex subject area and to close the perceived competency gap in engineering education, Denford has developed a unique CIM concept.

Denford Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) systems, consist of a sophisticated range of manufacturing technologies, providing a versatile approach to the teaching of complex engineering concepts and manufacturing techniques, from virtual reality simulation of a shop floor environment, to control of a physical CIM.
