BAe Factory at Hamble Goes D.N.C.

BAe Factory at Hamble Goes D.N.C. UNTIL mid 1990, Aerostructures Hamble Ltd AHL produced on average one mile of punched tape per week to feed programs into its 36 computer numerically controlled CNC metalcutting machine tools. Now the company has eliminated the need for tape by connecting the machines to the factory's computer network using the integral direct numerical control DNC facilities of the CIMITAR Workshop Manager installation supplied by BAeCAM, Preston. The result is a saving of around 100,000 per year, plus increased efficiency. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

UNTIL mid 1990, Aerostructures Hamble Ltd AHL produced on average one mile of punched tape per week to feed programs into its 36 computer numerically controlled CNC metalcutting machine tools. Now the company has eliminated the need for tape by connecting the machines to the factory's computer network using the integral direct numerical control DNC facilities of the CIMITAR Workshop Manager installation supplied by BAeCAM, Preston. The result is a saving of around 100,000 per year, plus increased efficiency.
