Camarillo , Calif. — March 3, 2010 — Computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) industry leader DP Technology, creator of ESPRIT®, will exhibit ESPRIT 2010, the latest version of its innovative software, at Westec 2010, set to take place March 23-25 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, Calif.
This year, the aim of the long-standing Westec technology showcase is to keep your manufacturing competitive, regardless of the industry you serve and the processes you select to get the job done. With a focus on advanced materials, machining, metalworking fluids, non-traditional machining processes, tooling/mold-making and metrology, Westec 2010 offers new choices to those who seek to save time while simplifying and maximize operations.
Visitors are encouraged to visit ESPRIT booth No. 2354, where knowledgeable representatives of DP Technology will be available to discuss vital upgrades in ESPRIT 2010 and perform demonstrations of how to make those upgrades to work for you.
Among its improvements, ESPRIT 2010 offers dramatic upgrades in the support of integrated multi-tasking, mill-turn machine tools. All ESPRIT milling and turning machining capability, from 2-axis turning to 5-axis milling, is available for any type of mill-turn machine tool, including lathes that perform milling, mills that perform turning, Swiss-style machines and other “integrated mill-turn machining centers.” In the 2010 release, support for these multi-tasking machine tools has been enhanced through increased flexibility in cutting tool configurations and orientations, enabling the support of a wide variety of machines. The newly added support for additional rotary axes, three or more, allows the ESPRIT customer to completely program and easily simulate the most complex and sophisticated machine tools currently available on the market.
For the ESPRIT wire-EDM customer, the 2010 version includes support for EDM machines with rotary axes. This allows EDM programmers to perform wire-EDM cutting in 5- and 6-axis using turn-and-burn (indexing the rotary table), and turn-while-burn full 5-axis simultaneous cutting with a rotary table. This new version also provides EDM programming with an innovative new 4-axis pocketing, no-core cutting, machining cycle.
ESPRIT is a high-performance computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) system for a full range of machine tool applications. ESPRIT delivers powerful full-spectrum programming for 2–5 axis milling, 2–22 axis turning, 2–5 axis wire EDM, multitasking mill-turn machining and B-axis machine tools, and high-speed 3- and 5-axis machining.
