CAM System Streamlines Workflows DP Technology Corp.'s Esprit CAM System enables manufacturers to streamline their workflows, prevent silos from forming during the manufacturing process, increase tool life and machine usage, and cre- ate better access to practical knowledge for process improvement. It allows users to create a digital twin of their machine tools for programming, optimization and simulation. According to the company, this virtual machine ensures that whatever happens on screen will also occur on the shop floor. Workpieces and cutting tools are set up vir- tually, resulting in exacting simulations, better productivity and better toolpaths for higher quality parts. With Esprit, a digital thread ties together each step of the workflow from CAD design to finished part, ensuring that none of the manufacturing process is siloed, the com- Chuck Designed for High-Speed Cutting Big Kaiser's Mega New Baby Chuck 25N is available up to a diameter of 1" clamping for drills, reamers and finishing end mills with 0.00004" runout accuracy. The Mega New Baby Chuck is designed for high-speed cut- ting and guarantees a 1 micron runout at the collet nose, the company says. According to the company, the chuck is for cutting tools with a diameter up to 25.4 mm, and its high-speed design is offered in six different collet series sizes. It has a clamping range of a diameter of 0.610"-1.000". The thrust ball bearings eliminate distortion of the collet during tightening and the design prevents the ball bearings from moving at high speed. Additional features include the chuck available in Big-Plus (SK/BT), HSK and Big Capto, a two-way coolant supply through tools or jet if tools don't have any holes, high runout precision of 0.003 mm at 4×D, and every chuck is inspected twice. :: Big Kaiser, 888-866-5776 pany says. Esprit reads part data from CAD software and creates machine-optimized G-code and setup sheets, which it then passes on to shopfloor management, tool data management and enterprise resource planning software. :: DP Technology Corp. - Esprit 800-627-8479, Tiger·tec ® Gold Go for better, go for Gold.
