A Real Electronic System to Control Virtual Machine in NC Machining Simulation
In this study, a system composed of real electrical communication system and virtual machine part has been used on NC machining simulation. By establishing a interface based on socket protocol, communication is established between real CNC systems and virtual machine tools. So, processing information of CNC system can be accurately passed to the virtual machine tools. Virtual machine is driven to work in accordance with the instructions of the CNC system. Experiments show that the system is steady and process is repeatable. With structure diagram of communication based on socket protocol shown, the system can be used to detect the manufacturability of the product design process or debug the electrical equipments more efficiently at low cost. It’s also helpful in testing the reliability of NC code in virtual machining.
