A transfer machine comprising a conveyor for conveying workpieces to stations and numerically controlled machine tools disposed at their respective stations. These machine tools are controlled by sequence controllers, which are connected with their respective numerical controllers. All the programs for machining operations are stored in each numerical controller.
