ESPRIT CAD/CAM Software for Mori Seiki Machine Tools

MAPPS IV with ESPRIT

The ESPRIT CAM system is a standard
feature of the new MAPPS IV Control.

MAPPS IV and ESPRIT CAM Software

ESPRIT computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) software is incorporated in the Mori Seiki MAPPS IV control, which enables the programming of 3D shapes and complex, added-value workpieces. This technology allows for complex programming while maintaining ease-of-use and flexibility.

The software also monitors the collision of spindles, workpieces, soft jaws, tools, holders and turrets — and stops the machine tool in the event of interference.

“The integration of ESPRIT addresses the previous shortcoming for complex multi-axis machines, in terms of conversational programming. Now there's a full-blown multi-axis system in the control for programming, editing, and simulating the toolpath of more complex components.” Greg Hyatt, vice president of engineering and chief technical officer for DMG/Mori Seiki USA, Inc.

“We support ESPRIT for MAPPS with a team of DP Technology / ESPRIT engineers stationed at major DMG / Mori Seiki Technology Centers around the world. Our goal is to help our customers take full advantage of their machine-tool investments and attain the unsurpassed levels of productivity and precision that come with the partnership between Mori Seiki and ESPRIT.” Don Davies, director of sales and application engineering – Americas for DP Technology

VF Meccanica enjoys success with ESPRIT

VF Meccanica is a long time supplier for Ducati that started using ESPRIT on its Mori Seiki MAPPS IV control, and has since widely incorporated ESPRIT in its production.

“ESPRIT is a complete and powerful CAM software, especially for
5-axis machining. We use it for its remarkable potential with our
Mori Seiki NMV 3000DSC.” Dario Violato, VF Meccanica

 

Mori Seiki NLX Series

The NLX Series was developed with independent platforms for the turning, milling and Y-axis specifications to ensure the optimal machine design for each specification. See a camshaft machined in ESPRIT.

 

Mori Seiki NZX Series

The NZX series is a high-precision, high-efficiency multi-axis turning center. See the NZX series program a gear.

 

Mori Seiki NTX 1000

The NTX 1000 is an ideal choice for machining small precision parts for medical equipment and measuring instruments, which have complex shapes but need high-precision and high-efficiency machining. See a hip implant machined in ESPRIT.

Mori Seiki NMV Series

The NMV Series is Mori Seiki's fastest, strongest 5-axis machine, offering unparalleled high-speed, high-precision complex-part machining.

 

Mori Seiki NH Series

The NH series is a high-precision horizontal machining center.

 

Mori Seiki NC Simulation

The ESPRIT simulation engine is used in Mori Seiki manufacturing suite software as a simulation engine to simulate the part being machined directly from the NC code.
