Effectively commanding motion on most CNC machines requires more than describing how the CNC machine determines the end point position for each motion.
For the most part, CNC controls will follow the instructions given in a program to the letter. With the exception of basic syntax (program formatting) mistakes, the CNC control will rarely be able to tell if a mistake has been made.
This concept examines the sequences of operation of a CNC machine by way of reference material related to key operational procedures.
