German term or phrase: Kurvenautomat
Die Meilensteine hießen „B0“ und „M2“, zwei Drehautomaten mit einer garantierten Genauigkeit von 5µ, die heute als Vorläufer der NC-Maschinen gelten. Und das XXX-Modell „D16“, das mit einer Weltneuheit aufwartete: dem erstmaligen Einsatz einer numerischen Steuerung an einem Kurvenautomaten.

automatic cam lathe
Explanation:
Kurve usually refers to cam when dealing with Drehmaschinen. Compare:

Automatic cam lathes
The movements are controlled by a purely mechanical transmission system. Each movement is represented by a cam revolving round a camshaft. The advantage of this family of control is an extraordinary productivity.

Automatische Kurvenmaschine
Die Bewegungen werden durch ein rein mechanisches Uebertragungssystem gesteuert. Jede Bewegung wird durch eine Kurve dargestellt, die um eine Kurvenwelle dreht. Der Vorteil dieser Steuerungsfamilie ist eine ausserordentliche Produktivität.
