Abstract

After the development of the first numerical control machine tool at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1952, numerical control has progressed rapidly, in line with advancements in computer and electronic technology. Today, sophisticated computer numerical control (CNC) machine tools are available, with many advanced computerized systems being used in machine control units. The advent of numerical engineering has not only made a remarkable change in the manufacturing sector, but also in production planning and design.
