Esprit 2008, by DP Technology includes advancements in turning stock automation for lathes. This new technology allows Esprit to maintain awareness of the state of lathe stock at all times during the machining process. After each turning operation is created, Esprit will update the stock to reflect the actual remaining material based on the machining cycles and cutting tools used. This stock automation capability allows the software to automatically manage lead-in and lead-out distances and moves, and eliminated the possibility of gouging material or crashing tools, resulting in improved quality of the part program and reduced programming time and effort, according to the company.

Other features include new threading cycles with a database of standard thread dimensions; a new cutoff cycle with more tool control; flexibility for a larger variety of cutting tools; improved material removal and machine simulation for more realistic computer-based dry runs; and the ability to handle an even larger variety of machine configurations. The software also includes advancements for CNC programmers of mills and wire EDM.
