The current paper describes the implementation of the wire electro discharge machining (EDM) algorithms for the STEP-NC project and some possible extensions. Wire EDM uses many working parameters (parameters for spark generation, speed of penetration, etc.) the setting of which needs expert system methods. These expert systems are a coded form of the company knowledge and are based on their experience. The higher information level provided by STEP-NC allows the development of new algorithms to… 

STEP-compliant process planning system for compound sheet metal machining

Compound punch-cutting machines are referred as machines that perform both punching and laser-cutting operations. Such machines can greatly increase the efficiency and flexibility of sheet metal

Development of a STEP-compliant design and manufacturing framework for discrete sheet metal bend parts

Metal sheets have the ability to be formed into nonstandard sizes and sections. Displacement-controlled computer numerical control press brakes are used for three-dimensional sheet metal forming.

Achieving a STEP-NC Enabled Advanced NC Programming Environment

Modern manufacturing requires a flexible numerical chain of industrial products, in particular the relationships between CAD/CAM solutions and CNC. No longer can CNC controllers restrain their tasks

A STEP-NC implementation approach for additive manufacturing

Research into integrated design and manufacturing based on STEP

This paper discusses a typical STEP-compliant manufacturing environment, which effectively integrates two systems. The first generates native data that retain the information needed to machine a part

STEP-NC-compliant machine automation to support sawblade stone-cutting machining

The paper presents a STEP-NC technology adaptation to a stone processing case where sawblade machines are used, and starts with the extension of theSTEP-NC data models to covering sawblade stone cutting processes.

A STEP-NC approach for multi-process manufacturing, simulation and optimisation

With STEP-NC object oriented programming standard, the next generation of CNC machine tools promises to be more open, intelligent and interoperable. As this ISO standard totally integrates CNC

Circular Sawblade Stone Cutting Technology Based on STEP-NC

The chapter reviews some particularities of sawblade stone machining processes and proposes an extended STEP-NC compliant model of CNC stone cutting technology.



Standardisation of the Manufacturing Process : the IMS STEP-NC project

An overview of a proposed new international standard for numerically controlled machine tools, ISO 14649, also known as STEP-NC, a STEP-compliant data interface for Numerical Control that aims to overcome the problems of ISO 6983 and take advantage of advances in computing and controllers.
