Camarillo, Calif. — Feb. 26, 2009 — ESPRIT® 2009, the latest software release from computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) industry innovator DP Technology, will be showcased at Design & Manufacturing South, slated to take place March 11-12 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C.
Design & Manufacturing South features knowledgeable exhibitors who represent each facet of the machining industry from design to manufacturing and distribution, and who strive to provide technologies that lower costs. With hundreds of exhibitors, Design & Manufacturing South is a one-stop shop for innovations in computer-aided design and manufacturing, and much more.
Those who visit the ESPRIT booth, No. 456, will have the opportunity to speak directly to knowledgeable DP staff who will be conducting presentations and one-on-one demonstrations of the upgrades available in ESPRIT 2009.
ESPRIT 2009 places heavy emphasis on integrated machining, the use of milling and, or turning in any combination on any type of machine tool — Swiss-turn, mill-turn, B-axis machines, etc. Therefore, as with the 3- and 5-axis improvement listed above, most improvements to the software are to the benefit of all programmers.
Other new or upgraded features highlighted in the 2009 release include improvement to the following machining cycles: facing, open-pocket machining, slot milling, chamfer milling and thread milling. Additional support for advanced coordinate systems has been added, including Rotate Tool Center Point (RTCP) programming for 5-axis milling, support for co-linear axes, and more automated tools for addressing the differences between the coordinate system used in the original design and the machining coordinate system (workpiece orientation).
Designed to distribute heat and wear more effectively than a single-point lathe tool, the new turning spinning-tool technology available in ESPRIT 2009 can increase productivity by up to 500 percent and tool life by up to 2,000 percent.
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.
ESPRIT’s high-performance capabilities include machining any part geometry (solid, surface, or wireframe), universal post processing to format G-code for virtually any machine tool, and solid simulation and verification with dry runs rendered in dynamic solids for optimal part quality and consistency. ESPRIT is 100 percent pure Windows®, and provides a comfortable and familiar user interface for maximum productivity.
