ESPRIT Announces Extended Support for Mazak Smooth Ai CNC
DP Technology, parent company of ESPRIT CAM, announces the ESPRIT digital twin may now be used within the Mazak Smooth Ai CNC.
Camarillo, California (June 19, 2020) – Further establishing itself as a leader in artificial intelligence for the manufacturing industry, ESPRIT by DP Technology announces extended support for Mazak Smooth Ai CNC. ESPRIT produces machine-optimized, edit-free G-code programs, program optimization, and machine simulation for Mazak’s entire line of machine tools. The extended support offered by ESPRIT for Mazak’s new Smooth Ai CNCs includes the ability to utilize the ESPRIT digital twin inside the CNC. This new capability is the result of years of collaborative partnership between DP Technology and Mazak Japan and an exciting example of what’s on the horizon for the industry at large.
With this extended support, the ESPRIT project data is synchronized with the Mazak Smooth Ai CNC. The synchronized project data includes the part and stock models, workholding, tooling, work offsets, tool offsets, and G-code program. With the synchronization between ESPRIT CAM and Mazak Smooth Ai, users can now preview the entire machining process virtually on the CNC, using the ESPRIT digital twin, before executing the program on the CNC machine. As a result, manual data input is eliminated, and the machine operator is offered greater assurance of the machining process. This results in shorter setup and prove-out times, and higher quality first-article run-offs.
Powered by the industry-proven AI engine, ESPRIT CAM is well known for its machine-optimized, edit-free G-code. Pairing the high-quality project data from ESPRIT with Smooth Ai provides end users with a streamlined machining experience and the confidence that what they see on the digital twin is what they will get on the real machine.
