Camarillo, CA, February 23, 2005- ESPRIT 2005, which includes a new pre-packaged solution for programming multitasking mill-turn machine tools, will increase productivity and contains many new features. Machinists and programmers will be able to view the latest software, by DP Technology Corp., at Eastec booth 1550, May 24-26.
ESPRIT’s out-of-the-box CAM solution now delivers complete pre-configured and factory-tested solutions for programming multitasking machine tools from Mori Seiki, Nakamura Tome, Citizen, EMCO Maier and Mazak. The latest release eliminates the complicated and costly need for end-users and/or resellers to have to devote time to post processor writing and machine definition, formerly routine steps that have increased in complexity with the availability of multitasking machine tools.
“ESPRIT’s advanced, real-time simulation performs comprehensive verification of the machining processes without taking machines off-line for expensive dry runs,” said Chuck Mathews, vice president of DP Technology, “leaving programmers confident of the results prior to cutting parts.”
ESPRIT 2005 Improves on a Variety of Other Features
While adding a whole new spectrum to multitasking mill-turn machine tools, ESPRIT has also continued to improve its powerful wire EDM, rotary milling support and
� More powerful wire EDM —new wire EDM feature selection in ESPRIT 2005 speeds and automates programming. It automatically recognizes whether selected wireframe geometry defines a 2-axis or 4-axis part, analyzes the part geometry and based on user-defined options and rules, automatically defines machining parameters. This information is stored with the feature; when creating the wire path, ESPRIT automatically reads the machining properties from the feature and applies them to the machining operation, saving time and money.
� Additional rotary milling support — faster, more flexible rotary machining is available with an enhanced Wrap Contouring machining cycle. Instead of being restricted to flat 2D geometry, programmers can now machine 3-dimensional features in their true position and are no longer restricted to cylindrical shapes. The cycle supports wrapped and flat geometry and allows for radial and perpendicular walls.
� Improved turning — new capabilities include programming and simulation support for fixed and moving steady rests utilized during machining long or heavy stock to prevent vibration and deflection. Turning operations now support work coordinates, with output in the local work coordinate system. Tools are easily editable in the new Lathe Tool Manager — add, edit, copy, delete or rename existing tools for simplified ease of use.
