Course: MC196 woodWOP 6 - 7 Programming and Operations for Nested-Based 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 6, 6.1, and 7 software for their WEEKE nested-based CNC machining centers. Programming instruction includes how to increase CNC machining center functionality including vertical drilling, and trimming. Course instruction addresses efficiently creating pockets, free form pockets, polygon routing, processed part parameters, and contour arcs. Emphasis is also placed upon the use of variables & global variables, template values, conditional statements, components, block macros, and the fundamentals of DXF importation. Instruction is geared towards safe operation of WEEKE nested-based CNC machining centers including uploading or adjusting programs at the machine. Students apply woodWOP programming fundamentals & continue with programming specific to nesting capabilities. 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, and cutter assembly & measurement. Using the Machine Control Center (MCC) or the powerTouch controller, students learn tooling, and how to reference the tool database using the softkey functions of the controller. Additional time will be spent addressing aggregate identification & applications, and fixturing. Emphasis is placed on increasing machine uptime, and the mechanical life of the machine and tooling.
