Course: MC105 woodWOP 5 Programming and Operations for CNCs
woodWOP is the versatile software platform base of WEEKE & HOMAG CNCs. While woodWOP is flexibly designed to be able to import from various other types of software, the focus this course will be in programming directly with woodWOP. Students learn efficient programming techniques of woodWOP 5 software on their HOMAG or WEEKE CNC machining centers. Programming instruction includes how to increase CNC machining functionality including horizontal & vertical drilling and trimming, grooving & vertical sawing, and aggregate functions & capabilities. Instruction includes efficiently creating pockets, free form pockets, polygon routing, processed part parameters, and contour arcs. Course addresses the use of variables & global variables, template values, conditional statements, components, block macros, and DXF importation. Students apply woodWOP 5 programming techniques to safely operate HOMAG or WEEKE CNC machining centers including uploading or adjusting programs at the machine. Through classroom and hands-on machine experience, students learn the importance of feed rates & rotation speeds, CNC tooling materials & geometry, use of the tool holder & collet, cutter assembly and measurement. Using the Machine Control Center (MCC), students learn tooling and how to reference the tool database using the softkey functions of the controller. Emphasis is placed on increasing machine uptime and extending the life of the machine and tooling.
