Abstract

ON the shop floor at Dowty Fuel Systems' Cheltenham factory, multi‐axis CNC (computer numerically controlled) machine tools produce the main bodies of the digital engine control system for Pratt & Whitney's PW305 engine. These advanced machines are now controlled directly from the Matra Datavision EUCLID‐IS CADCAM system, following a major advance towards computer integrated manufacture.
