Research Group on CAM and CNC at KLMM

    Introduction

    The research group at KLMM on CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) and CNC (Computed Numerically Controlled) machine was established around 2009 with the support of a research grant from the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The main focus of the group is to develop efficient algorithms and mathematical theories for some of the key problems in CAM and CNC manufacturing. We try to bring more mathematical rigor into the field of CAM CNC manufacturing and at the same time to enhance the practical performance of CAM software and CNC controllers. The research group has been working together with Shenyang Institute of Computing Technology within CAS where the BlueSky CNC controller system was developed.
