    New ESPRIT product update

    DP Technology has now updated its popular ESPRIT CAM system. The new ESPRIT includes new features such as a balanced turning cycle, as well as enhancements to existing features such as probing and additive directed-energy deposition (DED).

    The balanced turning cycle unlocks new capabilities for lathe users, including the ability to use two tools to make simultaneous cuts to the same workpiece, automatically synchronising passes between tools. The feature reduces cycle times by taking heavier cuts with pinch turning, using lead and trailing tools to cut two depths at once. Balanced turning can also rough with one tool and finish with the second. Finally, the feature reduces stock deflection on long, slender parts, ensuring consistency.

    The expanded probing features uses 4th-axis measurement, 5-point rectangle, angled surface and angled web/pocket to improve the intelligent cycle selection by supporting more advanced scenarios. These updates allow users to increase automation, reducing human intervention and human error.

    Improvements to additive DED allow manufacturers on the forefront to further expand their capabilities. A dedicated approach for additive trajectories manages dwell time for pauses between layers.
