Esprit 2013 to be discovered

Esprit® 2013, the latest version of the innovative computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software developed by DP Technology Corp., will be exhibited from Sept. 10-15 at IMTS, from Sept. 18 to 22 at AMB and from Sept. 25 to 28 at Micronora (to speak about the next three shows).

Esprit will be exhibited to allow visitors to receive one-on-one demonstrations and presentations of features available within the latest generation of the software. esprit 2013 includes new productivity-enhancing technology for all CNC programmers and for all machining disciplines.

New and enhanced machining technology
This latest version of Esprit focuses on providing new and enhanced machining technology that ensures smarter, more efficient toolpath and new strategies for greater overall productivity. Featuring functionality that emphasizes higher cutting speeds, longer tool life and suitability to increasingly complex geometry, Esprit 2013 is comprehensive in its ability to handle today’s most advanced machine tools and demanding machining applications.

A Quick glance

  • New ProfitMilling Pocketing: the patent-pending ProfitMilling strategy for 2-, 3- and 5-axis roughing cycles allows customers to remove more material in a shorter amount of time.
  • Trochoidal tool motion pattern has been improved in Esprit 2013 to reduce cycle time and additional tool lifts during transitional moves to reduce tool drag.
  • New options for cutting grooves faster and more efficiently by taking advantage of the latest technology in grooving inserts.
  • Completely new editable and customizable engraving machining cycle that allows customers to use “True Type” fonts, single-stroke fonts or features of the part geometry.
  • New 5-Axis roughing cycle has been designed to quickly and easily rough a 5-axis part using the same familiar technology used to rough a 3-axis part, including the new ProfitMilling pattern.
  • New collision-detection strategies have been added to all 3-axis and 5-axis milling operations, which detect collisions while toolpath is being calculated instead of during the simulation process.
  • New Geometry for Multi-Axis Machining. The machining of engine ports and turbine blades requires precise control of tool motion, and Esprit 2013 makes the task easier than ever before with new curves and surfaces to guide the tool.
  • “Wrap Pocketing” and “Wrap Contouring,” enhanced for Esprit 2013, now support the machining of non-cylindrical parts. In addition to wrapping a feature on a working diameter, a 3D feature chain may also be selected as an input, no longer necessitating “unwrapping” the feature.
