DP Technology Corp. (Camarillo, CA) will feature its latest CAM software, ESPRIT 2006, at Westec—running demos and giving informative presentations. Featuring functionality that emphasizes higher cutting speeds, longer tool life and suitability to increasingly complex geometry, the software is comprehensive in its ability to handle today’s most advanced machine tools and demanding machining applications. Software features include new grooving cycles which have been added to support advances in cutting tool geometry and machine tool design, including machines capable of turning while utilizing a B-axis. These new grooving cycles offer the following key functionalities: any-tool orientation utilizing a B-axis, new pre-finish options, expanded finish pass control—enhanced for NC compensation, optimized step-over calculations, additional roughing patterns, and support for casting stock. A new four-axis wrap pocketing machining cycle allows users to easily machine in four-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 workpiece.
