Paper Abstract

This presentation focuses on the evolution of Computerized Numerical Controls (CNC) for precision machine tools. It starts with a discussion of some early designs and progresses through the design of the controls for POMA and LODTM. The final system discussed utilizes the knowledge gained in those projects to develop a more generalized CNC with many of the features contained in the more elaborate systems.
