The Process KnowledgeBase provides detailed tool control and extensive process automation, automatically choosing the most suitable process to machine a given feature — including machining cycles, cutting tools, speeds and feeds, and all associated machining parameters. When a process is applied, process steps are automatically adjusted to accommodate the feature geometry and other feature characteristics. Programmers can also create new processes and update details of existing processes with the Process Manager. All machining parameters are presented in a color-coded display for a clear visual representation of each parameter’s source and condition.

A Speeds and Feeds calculator presents the best cutting speeds and feeds for each machining situation based upon the part material class and condition, cutting tool style and material, machining operation, and axial and radial depths of cut. The Speeds and Feeds KnowledgeBase Manager allows programmers to add and update cutting speeds for any given situation, and the optional CUTDATA database simplifies programming with over 100,000 speed and feed recommendations.

The Cutting Tool Manager provides an effective method for managing cutting tool information for consistent and accurate tool selection. The powerful Cutting Tool KnowledgeBase, a multi-user database, works integrally with the Process KnowledgeBase to provide automated tool selection and can be accessed whenever needed.

The company says that its entire Esprit 2009 product line will be launched at IMTS in Chicago in early September, and will ship in late September.

DP Technology and its ESPRIT product line are things I did not know much about before attending their World Event. However, having been there provided me with a great introductory opportunity and sparked my interest to pay more attention to them going forward. So, to echo what we heard at the DP Technology World Event, “To remain competitive, change before you have to.”
