The numerical control machine tool has been widely used. The implementation of its intelligence and accuracy is based on its advanced software configuration. Comifo, a flanging machine manufacturer
, found that the machine will have higher precision and production efficiency with more advanced software configuration, but sometimes the software system will appear fault.
1. System software failure
The failure of flange forming machine
system software is often caused by design errors. That is, in the software design stage, due to the poor system function considerations and the incomplete design goal, the defects occur in the algorithm, definition or module interface. Once these defects are present, they will not disappear, showing as the inherent nature of the fault. In some operating environments, such design defects may be triggered to cause software faults which can be corrected by updating the software version. In general, compared with the lower version of software, the higher version of software includes not only the increase of functions, but also the bug fixes of software defects.
2. Application software failure
The fault of flange forming machine application software is mainly caused by human factors with a certain degree of contingency and randomness, which is embodied in the users’ program design such as writing format, grammar or program structure errors. These errors, such as not fully understanding the system function or not considering the process, are mainly caused in the process of writing the programs or input the program. In addition, in the process of transferring and saving the program, it is also possible to make the content of the program change, resulting in the failure at the time of operation. This type of failure can be gradually reduced with the increasing familiarity of the operator with the numerical control system.
