DP Technology (Camarillo, CA) has introduced ESPRIT Mold™, an automated, easy-to-use, robust and powerful 3-axis and 5-axis CAM system. The software uses knowledge of in-process stock, remaining material, and integrated simulation and verification ESPRIT Mold delivers fast, safe and reliable programming for a wide variety of 3D machining applications. With 20 different milling strategies, the software automatically manages the in-process stock model, allowing the user to combine milling strategies from 2 ½-axis to 5-axis for optimized tool paths. ESPRIT Mold 3+2 Machining optimizes machining for improved surface finish utilizing A and B axes to incline the cutting tools. The use of shorter, more rigid cutting tools and direct machining of undercut areas is therefore possible. With complete security, all rapid movements between machining zones, even with different index angles, are automatically generated collision free with respect to the in-process stock. Additionally, the software offers the benefit of automatic continuous 5-axis machining to maximize part quality and cutting speeds while reducing cycle times. The automatic 5-axis takes any 3-axis tool path (Z level contour finishing, roughing or re-machining, etc.) and automatically converts it into a continuous 5-axis operation. A rich set of functions allows users to take profit from the latest 4- and 5-axis machine tools, while benefiting from ease of use.
