Complex holes are now recognized as a succession of sections, each with its own set of properties. These detailed properties are exposed in the ESPRIT API to help users automate the programming of custom holes.
Easy access to custom hole properties in the Property Manager
Identification of each section as one of four standard hole types: Straight (cylindrical), Taper (chamfer), Blend (radius), Face (flat)
In response to requests from the field, EDM pocketing now supports open profiles. Use open pocketing to efficiently cut small openings along a contour. First use efficient contouring to drop the slug, then follow up with no-core pocketing to burn away only the small amount of material that remains.
Apply no-core pocketing on open profiles
Save time by contouring larger areas first, then pocket only where needed
A challenge with simplifying a CAM system is to give the user control over the machining process while reducing time and effort. Read our white paper to learn more about how ESPRIT® 2017 get results faster with more reliability.
