DP Technology performs successful test cuts with Agie 123 upgrades available in ESPRIT 2009

Camarillo, Calif. - Aug. 5, 2008 - Computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) industry innovator DP Technology, creator of ESPRIT®, recently performed a series of successful test cuts utilizing new electrical discharge machining (EDM) technology for the Agie 123 machine, built into the soon-to-be-released ESPRIT 2009.

The University of Pittsburgh's Manufacturing Assistance Center (MAC), served as a testing ground for the upgraded technology, which is designed to ensure that DP customers who continue to use the older Agie 123 machines are using software with capability similar to that available for the newer EDMs.

"We are committed to our existing customers, who have been using this technology for the last 20 years," said Dave Bartholomew, DP wire EDM product manager. "We want to bring them up to a level that's consistent with the existing software and bring them to parity with that of all we offer for the newer wire EDM machines."

Jana Pham, DP senior software engineer, and Christophe Rogazy, DP EDM product manager, performed the tests of the new technology with the aid of Robert Beatty, MAC's plant manager.

"It is an older machine, but quite a few people still use it," Beatty said of the Agie, adding that upgrades available in ESPRIT 2009 help ensure that reliable code is consistently and more easily produced. "I like the increased functionality that has been added for the Agie. The new software interface makes programming fast and simple."

The new technology for the Agie 123 made available in ESPRIT 2009 includes advanced draft feature recognition for both geometry and solids, improved simulation, support for 2-axis and 4-axis features created from geometry or solids, and a new application programming interface (API). "The software for these older machines was limited when compared to our software for newer models," Pham said. "These improvements make using the software much more intuitive and provide a similar level of programming capability for both these older machines, as well as the latest wire EDMs."
