DP Technology Corp.’s Esprit 2015 accelerates the machining process by providing five-axis machining cycles that reduce cycle time. The software’s five-axis blade roughing cycle makes it possible to completely machine turbine blades in a single setup and eliminates the need for one or more semi-finish cycles. The software also includes features that increase machining productivity. The Bottom Up roughing strategy combined with ProfitMilling, a high-speed machining roughing technology, helps take ProfitMilling to the next level, according to the company.

The software has completely redesigned stock automation capabilities. The stock automation function maintains awareness of the stock removed by previous operations to generate cutting passes only in areas where stock remains. This function is designed to reduce air cutting, which in turn, reduces cycle time.

Esprit 2015 is designed to make it easier to move information from a CAD system into the CAM environment. Sketches, feature profiles and curves are now available from CATIA, Pro-Engineer and NX/UG to allow operators to create features easily in the software for further machining operations. It also allows users to create chains directly from solid models to speed up workflow.

With the software’s MachiningCloud Connection, programmers can easily find the best tooling for any job and save time flipping through printed tooling catalogs, the company says. Programmers can access updated cutting tool product data and simultaneously improve collision detection capabilities, according to the company.
