Application of DNC Communication System Based on Network Manufacturing Technology
DNC is referred to as the Direct Numerical Control, Intended for direct digital control. It means a number of numerical control equipment directly connected to a computer, and the central computer in charge of the NC program’s management and transfer. At present, DNC system includes not only the NC program, but also the manufacturing data of the specific tasks required for the production, such as cutting tools data, scheduling, configuration information of machine tools, and so on, and part of the DNC system also has the functions of machine tool state acquisition and remote control.
