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,
But commonly FANUC control systems are mostly used in CNC machines in the world.

What is a program?

A Program is required to operate NC machine tools. Programming is the creation of

a series of command statements. All Operations of the machine including “spindle rotation”,
“Tool movement” can be controlled by a program.

What is the ISO Language?

The ISO Language is a standardized (ISO – International Standardization
Organization) programming language used to control computerized machine tools. The
technology is called CNC. The ISO language is a way of describing the movements required by
the tool to create the desired work piece. The ISO language is to translate a drawing into

Outline of Programming

A Conventional machine tool is operated by the operator. With CNC machine tools,
the operating commands are given in the form of NC data. Programming is the process of coding
machining conditions such as cutting dimensions, processing orders, cutter movements or axes
feed rate all under fixed regulation which refers to the work piece drawing to instruct NC
machine tool. 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.

Automatic Programming

For complicated work pieces, such as three dimensional shapes, programming by

manual procedure may be too difficult and an automatic programming system aided by computer
is required. In this case, the NC data is automatically generated, without any manual calculation,
by inputting work piece drawings in to computer.

A set of commands given to the NC for machine motion is called a program. A

program is composed of number of Blocks. Part program is use to specify the machining process
for the cutting tools.

Decimal point is used to input the units like Distance, Time, and Angle.

X25.0 is use for input the distance value. X25.0 equal to 25mm or 25 inch.

G04 X1.0 is used for input the dwell time value. X0.1 is equal to one second.

A45 is used for input the angle value.A90 is equal to 45˙.

The following are the same meaning, in the case of decimal point.





If the Decimal point is eliminated. The system read in microns.

X 50 =0.05mm

X500 =0.5mm


Decimal point can be inputted for the following addresses.


1 Micron = 0.001mm.

G-CODES (Preparatory Function) As per FANUC-O.T Series

G-Code includes an address 'G' and numerical letter
G-code is the common name for the most commonly used numerical control (NC)
programming language, which has many implementations.
This general sense of the term, referring to the language overall (using the mass sense of "code"),
is imprecise, because it comes metonymically from the literal sense of the term, referring to one
letter address among many in the language (G address, for preparatory commands)
and to the specific codes (count sense) that can be formed with it (for example, G00, G01, G28).
In fact, every letter of the English alphabet is used somewhere in the language,
although some letters' use is less common.
Nevertheless, the general sense of the term is indelibly established as the common name
of the language.
The first implementation of numerical control was developed at the MIT
Servomechanisms Laboratory in the early 1950s.
In the decades since, many implementations have been developed by many (commercial and
noncommercial) organizations. G-code has often been used in these implementations.
The main standardized version used in the United States was settled by the Electronic Industries
Alliance in the early 1960s.[citation needed] A final revision was approved in February 1980 as
RS274D. In Europe, the standard DIN 66025 / ISO 6983 is often used instead.
Extensions and variations have been added independently by control manufacturers and machine
tool manufacturers, and operators of a specific controller must be aware of differences of each
manufacturer's product.
One standardized version of G-code, known as BCL, is used only on very few machines.
Some CNC machine manufacturers attempted to overcome compatibility difficulties by
standardizing on machine tool controllers built by Fanuc. This semistandardization can be
compared to other instances of market dominance, such as with IBM, Intel, or Microsoft.
Pros and cons exist, and a wide variety of alternatives are available.Some CNC machines use
"conversational" programming,which is a wizard-like programming mode that either hides G-
code or completely bypasses the use of G-code. Some popular examples are Southwestern
Industries' ProtoTRAK, Mazak's Mazatrol, Hurco's Ultimax and Mori Seiki's CAPS
conversational software.
G-code began as a limited type of language that lacked constructs such as loops,
conditional operators, and programmer-declared variables with natural-word-including names (or
the expressions in which to use them).
It was thus unable to encode logic; it was essentially just a way to "connect the dots"
where many of the dots' locations were figured out longhand by the programmer.
The latest implementations of G-code include such constructs, creating a language somewhat
closer to a high-level programming language. The more a programmer can tell the machine what
end result is desired, and leave the intermediate calculations to the machine,the more s/he uses
the machine's computational power to full advantage.
NURBS also uses codes consisting of the letter G plus a number (e.g., G0, G1, G2, G3)
in systems that are used to design flowing surfaces (3D contours).
The NURBS has its origins from the ship building industry and is described by using a
knot and a weight as for bending steamed wooden planks and beams.
