Abstract : This paper describes in detail an indigenous state-of-the-art DNC system designed, developed, fabricated and installed at DRDL NC Centre. It describes the hardware and software interfaces designed and developed in-house. At present, it supports a total of 16 CNC machines, 8 in serial port and the balance in parallel port. This system has the capability of extension up to 64 machines. During last one year of its installation and working it has been found to be extremely reliable.
