Abstract
The paper describes the building of a postprocessor for a Matsuura 1000V three-axis computer numerical control milling machine and its Fanuc System 6B controller. The Matsuura machine parameters such as travel, axes of freedom, tool banks, and interpolation techniques are assessed and those that are required are programmed into a machine data file generator sub-program. The appropriate command functions that are needed by simultaneous three-axis motion, the valid major and minor APT commands, and the site-specific machine control commands, are also included in the postprocessor software. Punch file data editing software was written and was used to ready the data files for the shop floor.
