A Framework of a NC Program Translator for Virtual Machining
Virtual manufacturing (VM) is an emerging technology that provides a digital tool for the optimization of the production efficiency through simulations prior to the start of actual production. A NC program translator is one of the crucial components for virtual machining which allows the simulation and verification of NC tool path before actual machining. In this paper, a framework of a NC program translator for diamond turning of precision optics is presented.
