Camarillo, Calif. — Oct. 12, 2012 — Computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) industry leader DP Technology Corp. will exhibit ESPRIT® 2013, the latest version of its flagship software, at Japan International Machine Tool Fair 2012, slated to take place Nov. 1-6 in Tokyo, Japan.
Considered a major manufacturing industry event, JIMTOF is dedicated to the development of industry and trade promotion through increased international exchange. Incorporating each manufacturing focus, JIMTOF will showcase the latest and greatest in machine and cutting tools, as well as related equipment, accessories and software.
Visitors to the ESPRIT booth will receive one-on-one demonstrations and presentations of features available within the latest generation of the software. ESPRIT 2013 offers upgrades in all machining disciplines, including enhancements to turning, milling, mill-turn and wire EDM cycles.
New to ESPRIT 2013, the patent-pending ProfitMilling strategy for 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-axis roughing cycles allows customers to remove more material in a shorter amount of time. ProfitMilling is a high-speed roughing cycle that allows you to take a significantly deeper cut of the tool and increase the cutting feed. Rather than controlling just one parameter, ProfitMilling monitors several vital cutting and machine characteristics.
The ProfitMilling toolpath manages chip load and side-cutter force in the calculation of toolpath while keeping the engagement angle and material removal rate within a specific range.
It also incorporates dynamic feedrate changes throughout the toolpath and takes advantage of toolpath optimization for specific machine capabilities.
“Our tests have shown that ProfitMilling typically reduces cycle time by 75 percent, minimizes programming time, reduces energy consumption, and increases tool life by an average of 500 percent,” said ESPRIT Product Manager Kenyon Whetsell. “We’ve seen the most dramatic benefits in using the ProfitMilling strategies with light to medium-duty machine tools.”
ESPRIT is a high-performance computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) system for a full range of machine tool applications. ESPRIT delivers powerful full-spectrum programming for 2–5 axis milling, 2–22 axis turning, 2–5 axis wire EDM, multitasking mill-turn machining and B-axis machine tools, and high-speed 3- and 5-axis machining.
