When computers are used to control a Numerical Control (NC) machine tool than the
machine is called CNC machine. In other words the use of computers to control machine tools
like lathe, mills, shaper etc is called CNC machine, wherein a software program is designated to
control an object. The language behind CNC machining is alternately referred to as G-code.

Early in the process, engineers create a computer-aided engineering design

(CAED) drawing of the part to be manufactured, then translate the drawing into G-code. A G-

code file is a series of instructions that come together to produce different movements and events
on a CNC machine.


Fig 3.7: Block diagram of CNC machine

(i) Input Devices: These are the devices which are used to input the part program in the CNC

(ii) Machine Control Unit (MCU): It is the heart of the CNC machine. It performs all the
controlling action of the CNC machine, the various functions performed by the MCU are

 It reads the coded instructions fed into it and decodes the coded instruction.
 It implements interpolation (linear, circular and helical) to generate axis motion commands.
 It feeds the axis motion commands to the amplifier circuits for driving the axis mechanisms.
 It receives the feedback signals of position and speed for each drive axis.
 It implements the auxiliary control functions such as coolant or spindle on/off and tool

Department of ECE, GEC K R PET Page 15

Bharat Earth Movers Limited, Mysuru 2018-2019

(iii) Machine Tool: A CNC machine tool always has a slide table and a spindle to control of the
position and speed. The machine table is controlled in X and Y axis direction and the spindle is
controlled in the Z axis direction.

(iv) Driving System: The driving system of a CNC machine consists of amplifier circuits, drive
motors and ball lead screw. The MCU feeds the signals (i.e. of position and speed) of each axis
to the amplifier circuits. The control signals are than augmented (increased) to actuate the drive
motors. And the actuated drive motors rotate the ball lead screw to position the machine table.

(v) Feedback System: This system consists of transducers that acts like sensors. It is also called
as measuring system. It contains position and speed transducers that continuously monitor the
position and speed of the cutting tool located at any instant. The MCU receives the signals from
these transducers and it uses the difference between the reference signals and feedback signals to
generate the control signals for correcting the position and speed errors.

(vi) Display Unit: A monitor is used to display the programs, commands and other useful data of
CNC machine.


 First the part program is inserted into the MCU of the CNC.
 In MCU all the data process takes place and according to the program prepared, it
prepares all the motion commands and sends it to the driving system.
 The drive system works as the motion commands are sent by MCU. Drive system
controls the motion and velocity of the machine tool.
 Feedback system records the position and velocity measurement of the machine tool and
sends a feedback signal to the MCU.
 In MCU, the feedback signals are compared with the reference signals and if there are
errors, it corrects it and sends new signals to the machine tool for the right operation to
 A display unit is used to see all the commands, programs and other important data. It acts
as the eye of the machine.

transformerr. The outcoming 11KV supply is stepped down to 440V &50Hz Using
100MVA transformer, with there voltage ratio respectively are 66KV/11KV/440V.
 The incoming feeders are connected to bus bar through lightning arrestors,line isolator,
circuit breakers, current-transformers etc…,the bus bars are to have an arrangement of
auxillary bus.
 A substation is an assembly of apparatus, which transformer’s the characteristics of
electrical energy from one to another, from one voltage levelto another level.Hence a
substation is an intermediate link between the generating station and the load units.

Power transformer:
A static electrical machine used for transforming power from one circuit to another circuit
without changing frequency is termed as power transformer.The transformers are generally used
to step down or step up the voltage level of a system for transmission and generation purpose.

Potential transformer:

Figure 3.12 Potential transformer

Potential transformer is quite similar to the current transformer, but it is used for
taking samples of high voltages of a system for providing low-voltage to the relays of
protection system and also to the low –rating meter for voltage measurement. From this low-
voltage measurement, actual system’s high voltage can be calculated without measuring high
voltage directly to avoid the cost of the measuring system.

Current Tranformer:

Current transformer is used for measurement of the altering current by taking samples of
high current of the system.These reduced samples are in accurate proportions with actual high
current of system. These are used for installation and maintenance of current relay in substation
for protection purpose which are normally have low-current for their operation.

connected electrically, bus bar is used as the common electrical component.bus bars are made up
of copper rods operate at constant voltage. Bus bars arrangements used at substations are:
1.single bus bar system.
2.duplicate bus bar system.

Lightening Arrester:

The substation equipment’s such as conductor,transformer etc…, are always erected

outdoor.Whenever light surges occur then,a high-voltage pass through these electrical
components causing damage to them.Therefore to avoid this difficulty, lightening arrester are
placed to pass entire lightening surge to earth.

Bharat Earth Movers Limited, Mysuru 2018-2019


Bharat Earth Movers Limited (BEML), mysuru is a great platform to understand real
world knowledge about the manufacturing unit and a good platform for trainers. I am proud to be
associated with this esteemed organization as an intern and I am fortunate to have the exposure
across most of the departments and its industrial functioning.
This interaction gave me an insight and first-hand experience of industrial scenario
outside the institute curriculum. In addition, the exposure gave me the practical knowledge into
the overall functioning of the organization, human behavior in industry and also helped me to co-
relate theoretical concepts of classroom and practical approach to industrial production.

administration and management aspects. I gratefully acknowledge the large heartedness of this
