The principle of Occam’s razor loosely translates to “the simplest solution is often the best”. The author of Kinematic Geometry of Surface Machining utilizes this reductionist philosophy to provide a solution to the highly inefficient process of machining sculptured parts on multi-axis NC machines. He has developed a method to quickly calculate the necessary parameters, greatly reduce trial and error, and achieve efficient machining processes by using less input information, and in turn saving a great deal of time.
This book, based on intensive research I have conducted since the late 1970s,
is my attempt to cover in one monograph the modern theory of surface generation
with a focus on kinematic geometry of surfacemachining on amultiaxis
numerical control (NC) machine. Although the orientation of this book
is toward computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aidedmanufacturing
(CAM), it is also useful for solving problems that relate to the generation of
surfaces on machine tools of conventional design (for example, gear generators,
and so forth)....

Mobile robots provide a motivating and interesting tool to perform laboratory experiments within the context of mechatronics, microelectronics and control. Students study this particular example in system design and integration tasks at different levels of complexity. This paper describes a set of workshops in which mobile robots were constructed in order to introduce students by hands-on experiments to mechatronic systems and control system design. This was tackled in combination with a teleoperations environment for rovers. Such...

Welcome to Mastercam Solids Version 9. Mastercam Solids brings solid
modeling to NC programmers with tools designed to make the line
seamless between solids and machining. Mastercam Solids is an add-on to
Mastercam Design, Mill Levels 1-3, Lathe Level 1, Wire Level 1, Router,
and Router Pro. It is not included with any product.
To help you learn Mastercam Solids, this tutorial and extensive online
help accompany the product.
NC programs include those which are prepared by custom macro and very
seldom altered and those which may differ from one another according to
relevant machining such as part programs. A batch handling of these
programs of different characters may cause 1 quicker battery
consumption, or spoil the custom macro in case of misoperation.
3 Axis Surface Machining is a new generation product that defines and manages NC programs. 3 Axis Surface Machining is dedicated to the machining of 3D geometry work parts with 3-axis machining techniques.
Other than this, automation and optimization of production engineering was attempted
in various fields. Okumoto et al. (2005D) optimized the block allocation on the
assembly area using simulated annealing method. Wibisono et al. (2007) optimized
block division planning using genetic algorithm and product model. Universal
Shipbuilding Corporation (2008) developed a high performance NC Printing Machine,
which enables fast printing irrespective of the number of characters and lines to be
