Abstract:

My talk today is based upon a development activity that I have been involved with for the last 4 years at KSI. The ultimate goal of this development program was to produce controller equipment that would function in a DNC network and allow the end user to begin to achieve an INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING APPROACH process. Before I continue any further, I feel I must define some terms in order for all of us to have a common understanding of the concepts that will be introduced. Currently, those of you involved with flame cutting in your yard are probably operating with either optical template or NC Numeric Control flame cutting equipment.
