An operating manual for a programming system for numerically controlled flame cutting of ships parts is presented. Computer programs, complete with operating instructions, flow diagrams, and program listings, are included. Sample programs and special instructions are provided to clarify the use of the system. The system presented has been developed using: (1) IBM-1620 computer, 60K memory, with card and tape input and output; (2) California Computer Products No. 560 digital plotter, connected on-line to the computer; (3) IBM No. 026 printing key punch; (4) Flexowriter No. NC-1; and (5) Air Reduction Company 'Tape-O-Graph' flame cutting machine, with General Electric Co. Mark Century director. Because this equipment was used in developing the system, the programs presented are for these specific units. The System Flow Diagram, using the AUTO-MAP 2 parts programming language and the equipment specified above, is shown. (Author)
