Moog Hydra-point three-axis, numerically-controlled miller was manufactured in England during the 1960s by Moog Hydra-point Ltd. on a machine made by the Bridgeport subsidiary, Adcock & Shipley Ltd.The machine was designed for straight-line milling, drilling, reaming, boring and tapping and was controlled by a numerical control unit, with pneumatic tape reading, that took standard 1-inch wide 8-track paper tape. Both the cutting tool and the workpiece were positioned hydraulically.

In 1976, Koren published the world’s first scientific paper on the algorithmic design of interpolators for CNC machines. These interpolators coordinate the motions of machine axes so that non-linear shapes can be cut on machines, thereby facilitating the production of high-precision complex parts. Yoram Koren controls the CNC-AC milling machine that he designed (McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada, May 1973) The control computer of both the CNC and the AC was Hewlett-Packard HP-2100. It was a 16-bit computer with a memory of 4096 words (4K), with cycle time of 1 microsecond and 16 I/O slots that were used to send signals to the three control loops and obtained signals from a force sensor mounted on the spindle
