Claim of US Patent No. 9,436,177

1. A numerical control system having a motor driving amplifier which drives a motor included in a machine and a numerical
controller connected to the motor driving amplifier via communication, the numerical controller comprising:
a numerical control processor outputting a moving instruction;
a motor control processor outputting an instruction for driving the motor based on the moving instruction from the numerical
control processor;

a communication interface of the motor driving amplifier which drives the motor based on the instruction from the motor control
processor; and

an amplifier interface unit connecting the numerical control processor and the motor control processor together, wherein
the motor control processor is a multi-core processor, and wherein the numerical control processor is allocated to a core
of the multi-core processor.
