Easily program the complex tapers common to mold components, forming dies, and cutting tools with the advanced conics capability of ESPRIT's contour cycle. When cutting a radius during tapering, built-in advanced conics allows you to alternate between cylindrical constant radius corners and conical constant taper corners. ESPRIT also provides independent programmable upper and lower radius control. While tapering into sharp corners, ESPRIT offers you the flexibility to maintain sharp corners top and bottom or machine a blended radius on the secondary plane.
4-axis Synchronized Machining
Quickly program parts with extremely complex tapers or completely independent freeform shapes, top and bottom, with ESPRIT's XY (lower), UV (upper) 4-axis contouring cycle. Select any two three-dimensional profiles and the 4-axis cutting process is automatically synchronized; you can add an unlimited number of additional synchronization lines. ESPRIT adds tabs automatically and creates skim cuts for unattended machining. Get 4-axis programming for any geometric shape with any number of elements: 3D, non-planar, UV and XY profiles, and non-planar fixturing.
