Comparison of STEP-NC with ISO6983 in Terms of Manufacturing Interoperability

Abstract:

Article Preview

Nowadays, the research scope of Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) vendors is to provide an interoperable controller to the industry, which has a capability to deal with more intelligent systems. G-code (ISO6983) as an information processing system has been used over the years, but by the development of systems during the generation of computer in industry the shortcomings of this information processing system becomes visible. STEP-NC as a new standard is being developed to remove barriers of ISO6983 such as lack of manufacturing interoperability between CAD/CAM/CAPP/CNC chains. In this paper, the lack of manufacturing interoperability between systems and solution in each one is reviewed, and then the case study has been developed to indicate power of STEP-NC in removing this barrier between different CNC’s.
