STEP-NC AP-238 is an integrated version of the STEP-NC ISO 14649 standard that enables more data sharing with the other STEP standards for CAD, CAM and CAE applications. This paper describes how STEP-NC AP-238 is being tested for deployment in the United States of America. The tests focused on showing that STEP-NC AP-238 allows multiple CAM systems to send five-axis tool path data to multiple CNC machines without any post-processing. The paper also describes the results of previous work… 

A roadmap for STEP-NC-enabled interoperable manufacturing

The STEP-NC—AP 238 and ISO 14649 standard is the result of a 10-year international effort to replace the RS274D (ISO 6983) G and M code standard with a modern associative language that connects the

STEP MODEL FOR AUTOMATION OF PROCESS MONITORING IN STEP-NC CLOSE-LOOP MANUFACTURING.

Abstract This paper proposes a STEP-compliant extension of the AP-238 information model to support CNC manufacturing monitoring capabilities. New nc_functions for AP-238 are proposed to provide

STEP-compliant CNC Systems, Present and Future Directions

Only a standardised and digitised product-process-resource description will enable the transformation from resource-based to knowledge-based, networked and adaptive manufacturing.

A concerted endeavour toward intelligent machining solutions

This paper reviews a series of demonstrations carried out to test and validate the STEP-NC standard, and uses the modern geometric constructs in that standard to specify device independent tool paths, and CAM independent volume removal features.

Interoperable STEP-NC Enabled Process Planning for Intelligent Machining

The interoperable and integrated information between CAD/CAM is reached and the system of process planning by features is established, useful for 3D process planning and the intelligent machining.

STEP-NC enabled cross-technology interoperability for CNC machining

The aim of this research was to enable the exchange of CNC programmes across machines with different technologies and demonstrate this between a C- axis CNC turn-mill machine and a 4-axis CNC machining centre by designing a cross-technology interoperability framework that is capable of supporting systems that can work with the different types of C NC machines.

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.
