Camarillo, Calif. — April 1, 2008 — Computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) industry leader DP Technology, maker of ESPRIT CAM software, and Sodick Co., Ltd., a leading builder of EDM machines, have signed an agreement to include a license of ESPRIT CAM software with each purchase of a new Sodick LP wire EDM machine.
Under this agreement, each new Sodick wire EDM machine equipped with an LP control will include a full commercial license of the ESPRIT CAM System for Sodick, featuring functionality that simplifies part-programming processes, increases part accuracy and reduces the length and complexity of G-code programs. ESPRIT for Sodick runs offline on a PC and provides the full power of ESPRIT’s programming functionality for Sodick wire EDM machines.
The ESPRIT CAM system for Sodick as included with Sodick LP equipped machines includes ESPRIT SolidWire Platinum Plus software for 2-5 axis wire EDM machines and features 2-axis contouring, 3-axis tapering and advanced conics capabilities, in addition to 4-axis XY and UV machining functions, 5-axis control and automated feature recognition. Features specific to Sodick wire EDM machines include a machine-specific user interface, integrated cutting data reader, solid simulation and verification, factory-certified post processing and more — all tailored especially for Sodick.
The ESPRIT for Sodick CAM system can also be used to program LN and LQ- equipped Sodick wire EDMs. As a member of the ESPRIT family of CAM software, ESPRIT for Sodick may be expanded to include 2–5 axis milling, 2–22 axis turning, multitasking mill-turn machining and B-axis machine tools, and high-speed 3- and 5-axis machining.
