Each CNC machine that participates in the production process has its own intended use and its own arrangement depending on that use. This arrangement brings in certain limitations for creating technological operations. For example, these may include the number of tools, their spatial orientation capabilities, dimensions of the workpiece to be processed, etc. To achieve maximum automation of CAM technology creation and its protection against potential errors, the user has to provide the Woodwork CAM program with as much data as possible about the CNC machine for which the CAM technology is being created. Let us call such an information container about a CNC machine “machine configuration” or simply “machine”. This section covers the following topics:
