Camarillo, Calif. — Sept. 10, 2009 — Computer-Aided-Manufacturing software developer DP Technology, creator of ESPRIT® — one of the world’s best-known and widely used CAM programs — will be on display Oct. 6-8 at the South-Tec Advanced Productivity Exposition (APEX), taking place this year in Charlotte, N.C.
Scheduled to take place this year at the Charlotte Convention Center, South-Tec has been dedicated to machine tool and metalworking technologies for more than three decades.
ESPRIT will be on display at booth No. 7052, where knowledgeable and approachable representatives will be on hand to answer questions and perform demonstrations of the latest time-saving upgrades.
Designed with ease of use in mind, ESPRIT emphasizes the use of milling and, or, turning in any combination and on any type of machine tool, which means that most improvements to the software are to the benefit of all programmers.
A new concept in highly-advanced machining functionality is based on the idea that any five-axis machining function, no matter how complex, can be defined with a few simple steps. By following the same time-tested steps that programmers use when deciding how to machine 5-axis parts, an advanced CAD/CAM system can combine highly advanced milling technology with an interface that is familiar and easy to understand. This new patent-pending FreeForm 5-axis composite machining cycle in ESPRIT allows users to independently define machining patterns and tool orientation strategies to be used when creating the simultaneous 5-axis tool path, and includes 20 different machining strategies (cycles) in one, resulting in a wide range of easily manageable possibilities. The new ESPRIT composite machining cycle gives the user the ability to perform simultaneous 5-axis machining for a wide variety of different parts and industries, including aerospace, medical, and automotive, through one simple user interface.
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.
