Abstract:

Because of die requirements and limitations of available programming and computing systems, the cost of numerically controlled processing is not competitive with conventional methods. When automated programming and computing systems with a high order of capability and proficiency are commonly available at reasonable cost, numerically controlled machining of forging dies will offer decreased cost, improved accuracy, better finish, shorter machining times, and stabilized production control with less skilled operators.
