Camarillo, Calif.—Feb. 27, 2006— DP Technology has released ESPRIT Mold, an automated, easy-to-use, robust and powerful 3-axis and 5-axis CAM system. This new product within the ESPRIT CAM software family incorporates over twelve years of accumulated expertise and comprehensive technology within the areas of 3-axis, 5-axis and high-speed machining. ESPRIT Mold is a member of the ESPRIT family of CAM software which also includes ESPRIT SolidMill, ESPRIT SolidTurn, ESPRIT SolidMillTurn and ESPRIT SolidWire.
ESPRIT Mold is now available through the ESPRIT reseller network to the thousands of companies throughout the world involved in the production of models, prototypes, injection molds, die casting molds and sheet metal molds.
ESPRIT Mold 3-axis Machining
Utilizing knowledge of in-process stock, remaining material, and integrated simulation and verification ESPRIT Mold delivers fast, safe and reliable programming
for a wide variety of 3D machining applications. With 20 different milling strategies, ESPRIT Mold automatically manages the in-process stock model, allowing the user to combine milling strategies from 2 ½-axis to 5-axis for optimized tool paths.
ESPRIT Mold 3+2 Machining optimizes machining for improved surface finish utilizing A and B axes to incline the cutting tools. The use of shorter, more rigid cutting tools and direct machining of undercut areas is therefore possible. With complete security, all rapid movements between machining zones, even with different index angles, are automatically generated collision free with respect to the in-process stock.
ESPRIT Mold 5-axis Machining
ESPRIT Mold offers the benefit of automatic continuous 5-axis machining to maximize part quality and cutting speeds while reducing cycle times. ESPRIT Mold’s automatic 5-axis takes any 3-axis tool path (Z level contour finishing, roughing or re/machining, etc.) and automatically converts it into a continuous 5-axis operation.
A rich set of functions allows users to take profit from the latest 4- and 5-axis machine tools, while benefiting from ease of use.
The high-performance ESPRIT family of CAM software offers powerful programming for any CNC machine tool. ESPRIT’s full-spectrum functionality includes programming for 2–5 axis milling, 2–22 axis turning, 2–5 axis wire EDM, multitasking mill-turn machining, and B-axis machine tools. ESPRIT is valued by CNC programmers for its ease-of-use, extensive suite of machining cycles, comprehensive tool control, and capacity to fully support an entire shop.
