Camarillo, Calif. — March 24, 2009 — Computer-aided-manufacturing industry innovator DP Technology will present ESPRIT® 2009, the latest version of its CAM software, at the 11th China International Machine Tool (CIMT) Show, to take place April 6-11 in Beijing, China.
As the largest international machine tool exhibition in China, this major event is an ideal platform from which to present the latest in technological advancements. The newest achievements in machine tools will be featured — including turning, milling, mill-turn, wire EDM and special purpose machines — attracting exhibitors and attendees from around the globe.
Those who visit the ESPRIT booth will have access to personal demonstrations of features available within the newest generation of the product, as well as discussion with knowledgeable DP Technology representatives.
ESPRIT 2009 places a heavy emphasis on integrated machining, the use of milling and, or turning in any combination on any type of machine tool — Swiss-turn, mill-turn, B-axis machines, etc. For that reason, most improvements to the software are to the benefit of all programmers.
Other new or upgraded features highlighted in the 2009 release include improvements to the following machining cycles: facing, open-pocket machining, slot milling, chamfer milling and thread milling. Additional support for advanced coordinate systems has been added, including Rotate Tool Center Point (RTCP) programming for 5-axis milling, support for co-linear axes, and more automated tools for addressing the differences between the coordinate system used in the original design and the machining coordinate system (workpiece orientation).
In addition to increasing the performance of the CAM software, the upgrades on display at CIMT 2009 and available within ESPRIT 2009 reduce the time required to produce part programs, increase the quality of those programs and help reduce machining cycle times.
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.
