History of Computer Numerical Control
Computer aided manufacturing (CAM) can be considering as a direct outcome of the development in the field of numerical control (N/C) of machine tools. No one would expect that Massachusetts Institute of Technology,USA who has demonstration the first N/C milling machine in 1952. The new technology had finally made a revolutioin in the manufacturing industries. In 1955 US introduce N/C system based on hardware, but system were built with separate elements and the reliability of these machine was bad. Later in 1970's N/C machine were built around LSI chips and MSI chips, during 1965 N/C manufacturing industries step forward constructed systems with mini-computer, which was named as Computer Numerical Control(CNC). The present day systems are designed around microprocessors to meet the requirements of high productivity, flexibility and high reliability to produce components with high quantity and quality at minimum manufacturing cost.

CNC Systems
1. Hardware: CNC hardware includes the microprocessors that effect control system functions and peripheral devices for data communication, machine tool, transducers, actuators, etc. 2. Software:CNC Software includes the programs that are executed by the system microprocessors this make machine to function and coordinate.

CNC Machine Tool Manufacturers in India
The first CNC Machine tool was developed in India as early as in 1975. CNC Machine tools become popular only during 1980 - 1985. Indian Machine Tool manufacturers' Technical collabration from countries like Japan, West Germany, U.K and U.S.A. There are now 35 manufacturers engaged in the production of CNC Machines.


There are large number of CNC Control systems are available. They are FANUC, SIEMENS, L - PRO, SINUMERIC-HINUMERIC, BOSCH etc., But commonly FANUC control systems are mostly used in CNC machines in the world. FANUC O.T Series - For CNC Turning centre (CNC Lathes) FANUC O.M Series - For CNC Machining centre (CNC Milling)

By number of tools available on the machines and the use of an Automatic tool changer (ATC) which waits for the tool required for the next operation. Which is realized by increased spindle speeds. High quality and accuracy.tapping and other operations can be performed with the same set up. 11. Types of CNC Lathe Machines 1. At a time a single operator operates more than one machine. Number of operation to be done further in CNC machines. Automatically positioning the slides of the machine tool through servo motors fitted with electronic amplifier and measuring the position of the slides by precision optical/Electronic feed back devices which can ensure slide positioning to micrometer accuracy. Increasing the metal removal rate. Expense materials where error in processing would be costly are machines in CNC Machines. 8.They are available with multiple tooling. Parts need substantial inspection is machined in CNC machines. 9.Horizontal CNC Lathe machines. Semi skilled operators are sufficient.Advantages over conventional machines 1. Minimizing the time requiered for changing over parts to the machined through the use of Multiple work tables (pallets) and automatic pallet changers 12. 13. Disadvantages * Cost of machine is high * Not suitable for small batch production * Maintenance cost is high Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS) Flexible manufacturing system (FMS) completely computer integrated factories with very little direct human supervision which begining to dominate the manufacturing scene today are some of the developments in factory automation related to CNC CNC LATHE MACHINES CNC Lathe machines are the major machine tools used for the production of rotating parts.

What is the ISO Language? .EOB means End of the Block which must be always used at the end of the each block. Programming is the creation of a series of command statements. PROGRAMMING What is a program? A Program is required to operate NC machine tools.

The ISO Language is a standardized (ISO – International Standardization Organization) programming language used to control computerized machine tools. such as three dimensional shapes. processing orders. Outline of Programming A Conventional machine tool is operated by the operator. programming by manual procedure may be too difficult and an automatic programming system aided by computer is required. by inputting work piece drawings in to computer. With CNC machine tools. In this case. The following shows a typical job flow for NC machine tools Manual Programming Manual programming is direct programming method of manual planning and manual calculations by programmers. cutter movements or axes feed rate all under fixed regulation which refers to the work piece drawing to instruct NC machine tool. the operating commands are given in the form of NC data. without any manual calculation. Automatic Programming For complicated work pieces. Programming is the process of coding machining conditions such as cutting dimensions. . The technology is called CNC. the NC data is automatically generated. The ISO language is to translate a drawing into movements. The ISO language is a way of describing the movements required by the tool to create the desired work piece.
