CNC control system are widely used for machine tools and other production machine applications. Typical program of machine tools or production machines defines line by line instructions stating position of the axis. Normally feedback control loops are not used. In this study the performance of the CNC control system performance was tested in an application of inverted pendulum actuated with linear motor. As a result, the control system stabilized the inverted pendulum successfully. It could also stabilize itself in few seconds after external disturbance. The built system could be useful for research and educational institutions for teaching purposes.
