Interchangeable Variable Block Data Format for Positioning, Contouring, and Contouring/Positioning Numerically Controlled Machines(STABILIZED Jun 2016)
This standard is intended to serve as a guidein the coordination of system design, to minimize the
variety of program manuscripts required, to promote uniformity of programming techniques, and to
foster interchangeability of input data between numerically controlled machines of the same classification
by type, process function, size, and accuracy. It is intended that simple numerically controlled
machines be programmed usinga simple format, which is systematically expandable for morec omplex machines.
