DP Technology will be demonstrating ESPRIT Mold™, an automated, easy-to-use and robust high-speed, 3-axis and 5-axis CAM system, at the NPE. Utilizing 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 3-D machining applications. With 20 different milling strategies, ESPRIT Mold automatically manages the in-process stock model, allowing the user to combine milling strategies from 2 ½-axis to 5-axis for optimized toolpaths. It offers the benefit of automatic continuous 5-axis machining to maximize part quality and cutting speeds while reducing cycle times. ESPRIT Mold’s automatic 5-axis takes any 3-axis toolpath (Z level contour finishing, roughing or re-machining, etc.) and automatically converts it into a continuous 5-axis operation. 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. The 3+2 product provides an innovative, simple approach to managing the travel limits of the machining and an easy-to-use method to control the tool inclination and indexing angles. The automatic definition of the approach and retract movements between the machining zones with different indexing angles is complete with comprehensive collision avoidance.
