Controlled microstructure of arc-sprayed metal shells
Shells made of sprayed ferrous materials are feasible for prototype and limited production tooling. A systematic study of the microstructure of arc-sprayed ferrous structures is presented,… Expand
Algorithmic tolerances and semantics in data exchange
Within industrial contexts, a common view of the level of confidence needed in CAD data transfer processes may be expressed as “1 don’t mind if the [CAD datatmnsfer] algorithm sometimes has difficulties, provided I get a warning message that tells me something has gone wrong. ” A particularly annoying, even mystifying, CAD data exchange problem occurs in the so-called ‘round-trip’ problem.

A design of a controller as a component of a robotic manufacturing system
Abstract This paper specifies the functional design of a robot or machine tool controller suitable for inclusion in robotic manufacturing systems. The principle interest is the unmanned manufacturing… Expand
The design of a flexible machining cell for small batch production
Abstract This paper discusses the conceptual design of a manufacturing cell for a small batch manufacturer. The cell produces small parts with dimensional tolerances of ±0.005 inch (0.13 mm) using a… Expand

In the US SE Coastal Plain, adoption of site-specific farming has lagged behind that in the upper Midwest. While reasons for this may be both social and economic, it appears that the importance of… Expand
Designing Programming Languages for Manufacturing Cells.
A rule based language in conjunction with a set of grammatical constraints supervises a cell which manufactures turbine blade pre-forms. Expand
Rapid Prototyping of Tools
Abstract : This report describes a system for rapid tool manufacturing based on the integration of stereolithograph and thermal spraying. With stereolithography apparatus (SLA), plastic prototype… Expand
Precision Flexible Machining Cells within a Manufacturing System.
Abstract : This report discusses the conceptual design of a manufacturing cell for a small-batch manufacturer. The cell produces precision parts with a minimum of machining equipment. The cell design… Expand
