This paper presents a comprehensive virtual simulation model for CNC systems. The Virtual CNC (VCNC) has a modular architecture, allowing a real CNC to be prototyped quickly from standard library functions for feed drive models, feedback devices, axis control laws, and trajectory interpolation. Additional CNC modules can easily be prototyped and integrated to the VCNC by the user. Various application examples are presented which include the prediction of contour errors, auto-tuning of feed… CONTINUE READING
