Software Update Optimizes Machining Processes and Increases Profts Esprit 2016 features a high speed lathe roughing strategy, called ProftTurning, that implements the software's Physics-Based Cutting Engine. While traditional cutting strategies only consider the part geometry, ProftTurning creates the toolpath considering multiple cutting factors and machine characteristics that impact machining performance. The feature improves chip control on hard materials, such as titanium and Inconel. It also reduces irregular cutting forces and vibration tendencies. Designed to save the user time, Esprit 2016 includes increased simulation speed and higher quality surface fnishing. Advanced tool settings provide CAM programmers additional barrel tool support to cover more fve- and three- axis cutting cycles. Cloud-enabled Esprit supports the MachiningCloud App, which enables users to retrieve cutting tool solu- tions and import them directly into the software with ease, the company says. The version also features enhanced CAD recognition functions to correct and detect any acute unseen defects in imported CAD models. The Hole Fea- ture Recognition features in Esprit 2016 include automatically recognizing diferent types of complex holes, and it names them accordingly. Esprit also measures the curvature angle of open holes, making complex drilling operations more accurate and productive. Fluid, fve-axis features in the software update eliminate unwanted plunge-type moves in swarf cycles and smooth any concealed defects in spiral fnishing part surfaces. The feed rate of spiral roughing can now also be increased for non-cutting moves to save cutting time. The software accelerates machining with increased simulation speed and cutting strategies that save users programming time. :: ESPRIT by DP Technology Corp. 800-627-8479 The Power of Parallel Amazing speed with multiple slides removing metal simultaneously.
