Camarillo, Calif. — March 16, 2009 — DP Technology’s ESPRIT® 2009 computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software will be exhibited at WESTEC 2009, slated for March 30-April 2 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, in Los Angeles, California.
The “pulse of manufacturing” is the theme of this year’s installation of Westec, the West Coast’s largest cutting-edge machine tool and manufacturing event. On display will be more than 600 exhibits staffed by manufacturing professionals showcasing the most advanced solutions, equipment and technologies.
On exhibit at booth No. 3382, ESPRIT 2009 will be demonstrated for Westec visitors, who will also have access to knowledgeable ESPRIT representatives.
ESPRIT 2009 takes the previous redesign of the software’s Operation Manager one step further with a new graphical user interface (GUI) for the ESPRIT Cutting Tool Manager. This new GUI presents the same look and feel for both milling and turning tools, with cutting tools being grouped by the milling head or lathe turret they belong to. The new tool manager also has better integration with the KnowledgeBase™ (cutting tool database). Icons show which tools have been added from the KnowledgeBase and which tools were created individually in the ESPRIT document, which can be easily added to the KnowledgeBase. They then may be reused in other programs or by other programmers. Additional GUI upgrades include new dialogs for the definition of individual cutting tools, which are significantly simplified and now support the definition of the tool shank. The new GUI displays more accurate images of the tools to aid in more easily defining tool geometry.
In addition to increasing the performance of the CAM software, the upgrades on display at WESTEC 2009 and available within ESPRIT 2009 reduce the time required to produce part programs while increasing the quality of those programs and helping to reduce machining cycle times.
