The latest release of ESPRIT Mold includes significant performance increases for the 3D programmer that results in the reduction of cycle times of 25-50 percent or more while simultaneously increasing part quality and reducing programming time and effort.
ESPRIT Mold is a member of the ESPRIT family of CAM software, which also includes programming for 2-5 axis milling, 2-22 axis turning, 2-5 axis wire EDM, and multitasking mill-turn machining and B-axis milling.
Each year, a new version of the ESPRIT Mold software is released, providing users with significant advancements. This particular release incorporates a large number of advancements that include a new geometric kernel that provides support for a wider variety of solid and surface part geometry, enhanced 3-axis machining cycles for increased performance, improved user interface — making it easier and quicker to create toolpath —improvements to the existing 5-axis machining cycles, and a new 5-axis “AutoTilt” machining cycle that automatically creates a collision free 5-axis machining cycle from existing 3-axis toolpath. ESPRIT Mold is designed to run on both Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Vista operating systems.
Enhanced 3-axis Machining Cycles and Improved User Interface
ESPRIT Mold v9 includes the ability to use a “temporary check surfaces” function to restrict the toolpath and avoid areas such as holes and cavities that are not to be machined. All toolpath created by the software is now visualized immediately on the screen, utilizing the selected layers and colors.
The re-machining cycles have been enhanced to optimize the machining processes by applying differing optimal strategies for horizontal and vertical zones of the work piece. All of the 3-axis machining cycles have been improved to offer greater tool control and more comprehensive collision avoidance, including both rapid and cutting movements.
The user interface has been upgraded with revised dialog boxes that include self- explanatory icons and pictures for greater ease-of-use, while the revised menu structure that now closely follows the Windows standards make the software easier to learn. Improved file management, faster and more realistic simulation, and faster loading and saving of project files all add up to a greatly improved user experience.
