The Acceleration/ Deceleration controller plays the role of smoothing axis movement. The position controller controls the axis movement every sampling period for position control. The PLC is the module that controls machine behavior, except for servo control, and is similar to the PLC system of an automated device with respect to sequentially carrying out the sequence program (the so-called ladder program) edited by the user. However, in respect of exchanging data with the NCK and sharing the system resource, the PLC in a CNC system is distinguished from the PLC system of an automated device.
5 The Components of the CNC system The CNC system is composed of three units; the NC unit which offers the user interface and carries out position control, the motor unit, and the driver unit. In a narrow 20 1 Introduction to NC Systems Fig. 11 Classification of control mechanism according to position data detection method sense, only the NC unit is called a CNC system.

Unstable means hunting, which is impossible to stop at the command position due to repetitive overshooting and returning. In the closed loop, if the resonance frequency of the machine driving system is not sufficiently higher than the gain, the control loop system becomes unstable. In addition, stick slip and lost motion are the main factors that give rise to hunting. Therefore, it is necessary to increase the resonance frequency of the machine driving system and, for this, it is necessary to increase the rigidity of the machine, decrease the friction coefficient of the perturbation surface, and remove the cause of lost motion.
