Camarillo , Calif. — March 24, 2010 — Computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) industry leader DP Technology, creator of ESPRIT®, will exhibit ESPRIT 2010, the latest version of its innovative software, at the 13th Annual ESAFORM Conference on Material Forming April 7-9 at the University of Brescia in Brescia, Italy.
Hosted annually in different European destinations, ESAFORM comprehensively addresses several metal-forming mediums — including metals, polymers, ceramics, composites and biomaterials — in addition to processes new and traditional.
Visitors to the ESPRIT exhibit will meet friendly, knowledgeable DP representatives available to discuss vital upgrades in ESPRIT 2010 and perform demonstrations of how to make those upgrades work for you.
Among its improvements, ESPRIT 2010 offers dramatic upgrades in the support of integrated multi-tasking, mill-turn machine tools. All ESPRIT milling and turning machining capability, from 2-axis turning to 5-axis milling, is available for any type of mill-turn machine tool, including lathes that perform milling, mills that perform turning, Swiss-style machines and other “integrated mill-turn machining centers.” In the 2010 release, support for these multi-tasking machine tools has been enhanced through increased flexibility in cutting tool configurations and orientations, enabling the support of a wide variety of machines. The newly added support for additional rotary axes, three or more, allows the ESPRIT customer to completely program and easily simulate the most complex and sophisticated machine tools currently available on the market.
For the ESPRIT wire-EDM customer, the 2010 version includes support for EDM machines with rotary axes. This allows EDM programmers to perform wire-EDM cutting in 5- and 6-axis using turn-and-burn (indexing the rotary table), and turn-while-burn full 5-axis simultaneous cutting with a rotary table. This new version also provides EDM programming with an innovative new 4-axis pocketing, no-core cutting, machining cycle.
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.
