Esprit 2010 CAM eases pocket milling
Esprit 2010 software
DP Technology is to exhibit its Esprit 2010 software at Industrie 2010 on 22-26 March in Paris France.
Representatives of DP Technology will be available to discuss Esprit upgrades and demonstrate how those upgrades can be put to work for the customer.
The company claimed that every Esprit user will benefit from a faster-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) used to define machining operations throughout Esprit.
The tree-style GUI is used to define machining parameters used for cutting parts in milling, turning and wire EDM programming.
In addition to an array of upgrades, the machining of pockets is said to be easier with Esprit 2010 due to advancements in feature recognition.
The upgraded advanced feature recognition automatically recognises pockets with any combination of open and closed walls, fillets, chamfers and tapered walls.
Including major upgrades to milling functions, Esprit 2010 features several three-axis milling cycles, improved five-axis cycles, feature-based machining for all Freeform cycles and the ability to define a third-party rotary axis for milling machines.
Knitted surfaces for parametric machining and advanced pocket feature recognition are also among milling upgrades, as well as associativity with CAD models.
Advances made to Esprit Wire EDM functions include a cycle for four-axis pocketing and new technology for EDM machines equipped with a rotary axis.
DP Technology will exhibit the latest version of its CAM software at PDX-Amerimold, which takes place at the Duke Energy Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, from 11-13 May.
DP Technology has announced that its Esprit computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) system has been certified for the Autodesk Inventor 2011 mechanical design and engineering software.
DP Technology will exhibit Esprit 2010 at Intermold/Die and Mold Asia 2010, scheduled for 14-17 April in Osaka, Japan.
