Study on Key Technologies of DNC System Oriented Networked Manufacturing
As one of major methods to meet information integration of numerical control machines in workshop, DNC (Direct Numerical Control or Distributed Numerical Control) oriented networked manufacturing (Web-DNC system) differs dramatically from conventional ones by having: (1) concurrently supporting networked manufacturing; (2) sharing the numerical control machines via network; (3) optimizing the configuration and reorganization of numerical control resources. This paper deals with the key technologies of Web-DNC system, including: the implementing architecture model with four layers (user layer, service layer, agent layer and facility layer) and the topology architecture. The BL2000 SCM is selected as a COM server to meet the required capabilities of DNC controller. Compared with the communication architecture with fieldbus, a simpler function model of DNC communication technology based on Ethernet technology is presented. A Web-DNC system prototype is developed and proved to be effective in information integration of numerical control machines in injecton workshop.
