Camarillo, CA- CAM Market Leader, DP Technology announces the signing of a promotional agreement with machine tool company Haas Automation Europe whereby every new Haas Milling Machine or Haas Lathe purchased in Europe will include an offer for ESPRIT CAM software. ESPRIT provides a powerful manufacturing solution that enhances productivity, reduces machine off-times, and maximizes profits by supplementing the Haas package for milling machines and lathes with ESPRIT's Adaptive Feature Recognition and complete suite of automated machining cycles.
Adaptive Feature Recognition to Speed Programming
Haas machine tool users will benefit from ESPRIT's Adaptive Feature Recognition which automatically recognizes part features (holes, pockets, slots, threads) as well as feature attributes (height, depth, and work plane orientation). ESPRIT utilizes these feature attributes to create the tool path needed to machine each feature, automatically setting the machining parameters based on the feature being machined. The user simply clicks on the feature to select it and ESPRIT automatically determines the depth of cut from the part geometry and calculates the offsets needed for machining operations, such as roughing and semi finishing.
Complete Tool Control
ESPRIT will provide Haas machine tool users with completely automated programming without sacrificing tool control when they need it. ESPRIT offers a complete suite of automated machining cycles and a full range of options for precise tool control over entry and exit moves, clearances, and off-sets. A customizable, integrated speeds and feeds database automatically calculates the correct cutting speeds. Users have precise control over every individual tool movement and can change any cutting condition at any point during a cut; thus, ESPRIT optimizes tool travel while minimizing cycle time and machine wear.
Upgrade ESPRIT for Added Value
Haas machine tool users can easily upgrade their ESPRIT CAM system, enabling them to program any CNC machine tool (2 - 5 axis Milling, 2 - 22 axis Turning, 2 - 5 axis Wire-EDM), machine any part geometry (solid, surface, wire frame) from any source, and increase productivity through automation (Visual Basic, KnowledgeBase).
In addition, an upgrade allows users to put their license under ESPRIT's Software Maintenance Contract (SMC) and take advantage of the free regular software updates.
Training and software upgrades are available through the European ESPRIT reseller network.
