The author has written this text for students and researchers in the fields of computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided process planning (CAPP), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and computer numerical control
(CNC) as well as engineers working in industrial R&D facilities.
machine tools use position servos with digital signal processing.
Thomas, in conjunction with the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, has compiled a book-length manuscript called a History of Numerical Control
for Machine Tools.
THINC Intelligent Numerical Control
embeds Okuma's 40+ years of control experience into an intelligent open platform.
This collection of articles includes papers on integrated process design and control--a new paradigm with applications to mechatronics; mechatronic systems techniques in computer numerical control
of machine tools; mechatronics applied to web forming processes; the hot strip rolling mill looper (a control design study); thermomechanics: mechatronic systems and guidance techniques in thermal manufacturing process control; passivity-based regulation of nonlinear continuous processes; and observer and control techniques for bilinear systems with applications in mechatronics.
More than 40 members visited the new plant in Davie and saw state-of-the-art systems, including CAD/CAM systems, computerized numerical control
(CNC) equipment, and a computerized scheduling system.
