This text provides a handbook and reference source for the programming of numerically controlled machine tools. These machine tools form the basis of flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) and computer integrated manufacturing systems (CIMs). Coverage includes direct numerically-controlled machining, the machining of general curved surfaces, simulation testing of CNC part programs, and retrofitting of manual machine tools, together with extensive computer listings. Some of the special features covered include pictorial information on manual part programming, complete descriptions of modern, interactive graphic, computer-assisted methods of CNC programming, coverage of integrated CAD/CAM programming, listed programs, with section by section explanations, on direct transmission programs, the advanced machining of curved surfaces and programs to test CNC part programs, and case studies which show how to automate manual machine tools.
