Camarillo, Calif. — Sept. 23, 2008 — DP Technology, an innovative leader in the computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) sector and author of the ESPRIT® CAM systems, recently signed an agreement with Siemens PLM Software — a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services — to extend the use of Parasolid® software, a geometric modeling component for demanding 3D applications, in its ESPRIT CAM software.
The standard base license of the ESPRIT 2000 series will now utilize the Parasolid Designer level functionality, thereby offering the advanced solid modeling capabilities of ESPRIT, previously an optional product, as a standard component of the software. The ESPRIT Mold version of the software will, for the first time, utilize Parasolid Communicator as part of its standard base license.
“Utilizing this new technology, ESPRIT will now offer significantly more modeling and interoperability capabilities within the ESPRIT base license,” said Chuck Mathews, DP’s vice president. “Interoperatbility that was previously unavailable within ESPRIT Mold and advanced modeling capabilities that were optionally available at additional cost are now both included within the base product. The change provides our customers with significantly more capability and value.”
“As the PLM industry’s leading provider of open solutions, we are pleased when a progressive company like DP Technology leverages one of our software components to enhance value for their customers,” said Chris Kelley, vice president of Partner and Platform Marketing, Siemens PLM Software. “With today’s announcement, the robust quality and functionality of Parasolid is now available to every ESPRIT customer.”
Existing ESPRIT customers with active software maintenance contracts will receive these upgrades at no additional cost as part of their existing service agreement with DP Technology.
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.
ESPRIT’s high-performance capabilities include machining any part geometry (solid, surface, or wireframe), universal post processing to format G-code for virtually any machine tool, and solid simulation and verification with dry runs rendered in dynamic solids for optimal part quality and consistency. ESPRIT is 100 percent pure Windows®, and provides a comfortable and familiar user interface for maximum productivity.
ESPRIT’s multitasking component provides powerful capabilities for driving mill-turn machines, multi-axis lathes, and Swiss-style machine tools. ESPRIT provides synchronization of simultaneous cutting cycles using any combination of turrets and spindles for milling or turning, factory-certified post processors for all the leading multitasking machine tools, and dynamic solid simulations for dry run verification of the machining processes.
The ESPRIT CAM system reflects over 20 years of research and development, and ESPRIT’s partnerships with the world’s premiere machine tool builders confirm the leading position ESPRIT has earned in the CAM software market. CNC programmers in every manufacturing sector, from medical to aerospace, rely on ESPRIT to meet their demanding machine tool programming requirements.
