DP Technology announce the release of the new ESPRIT, a powerful update to their best-selling CAM system.
Camarillo, California (April 27, 2020)—DP Technology, leaders in computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software, announce a new update to their popular ESPRIT CAM system. The new ESPRIT includes new features such as a balanced turning cycle, as well as enhancements to existing features such as probing and additive directed-energy deposition (DED).
The balanced turning cycle unlocks new capabilities for lathe users, including the ability to use two tools to make simultaneous cuts to the same workpiece, automatically synchronizing passes between tools. The feature reduces cycle times by taking heavier cuts with pinch turning, using lead and trailing tools to cut two depths at once. Balanced turning can also rough with one tool and finish with the second. Finally, the feature reduces stock deflection on long, slender parts, ensuring consistency.
The expanded probing features of the new ESPRIT are also notable. Using a 4th-axis measurement, 5-point rectangle, angled surface and angled web/pocket, it improves the intelligent cycle selection by supporting more advanced scenarios. These updates allow users to increase automation, reducing human intervention and therefore human error.
Improvements to additive DED allow manufacturers on the forefront to further expand their capabilities. A dedicated approach for additive trajectories, this update manages dwell time for pauses between layers.
“Although each new feature offers a discrete set of benefits to users, combining them into one large release helps keep our software on the cutting edge and minimize disruptions in our customers’ shops,” says Tania Campanelli, Director of Research and Development for DP Technology. “Each new product release brings a host of attractive features that can help set these shops apart from the competition,” says Campanelli. “In this version, users can enjoy features including coolant improvement, drilling interrupted holes, collinear axes, and other ways to expand their capabilities.”
By improving throughput on existing machine tools, the new ESPRIT enhances a shop’s capabilities, offering users a distinct advantage in competitive industries.
Program machines with collinear axes such as the Mazak Versatech with Z-axis on the bridge and on the ram.
