Paper Abstract

STEP-NC is an extension of STEP that defines a machine independent bi-directional data standard for Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) systems. A framework of CNC turning system based on STEP-NC for the development of a new CNC system was proposed. Eighteen functional modules were involved in the software-based framework of STEP-NC control system. A RTCORBA-based soft bus was utilized to communicate among the functional modules in this system. Implementing method for some key technologies of STEP-NC control system (named SNC system in this paper) were presented. As a result, this research shows a high potential to aid the development of new CNC turning system.
