Latest CAM Release Features Mill/Turn Technology

Featuring functionality that emphasizes higher cutting speeds, extended tooling life and capabilities to deal with increasingly complex geometry, Esprit 2006 is now available from DP Technology Corp. Inherent in the program are added grooving cycles that support advances in cutting tool geometry and machine tool design, including machines capable of turning while using a B axis. These cycles offer orientation of virtually any tool using a B-axis, pre-finish options, expanded finish pass control (enhanced for NC compensation), optimized stepover calculations, additional roughing patterns and support for casting stock.

Also included is a four-axis wrap pocketing machining cycle to enable users to machine in fourth axis directly from a 3D solid model. This new capability supplements the wrap-contouring cycle introduced in Esprit 2005.  Both of these machining cycles provide the programmer with the choice of working with flat 2D or 3D representations of the work piece.
