DP Technology to exhibit ESPRIT at EASTEC 2010 May 25-27

DP Technology Corp., maker of ESPRIT®, will exhibit the latest version of its software May 25-27, when Eastec 2010 takes place in West Springfield, Mass.

Considered the East Coast’s premier one-stop shop for breakthrough technologies for more than three decades, Eastec is a major resource for the cutting edge in not only solutions and machine tools, but in all aspects of the manufacturing industry. This year, the show is expected to attract roughly 500 exhibitors.

Attendees of Eastec 2010 are encouraged to visit the ESPRIT booth, No. 5359, where knowledgeable DP representatives will be available to discuss vital upgrades and perform demonstrations of how to best make those upgrades work for them.

ESPRIT 2010 offers dramatic improvements in the support of integrated multi-tasking, mill-turn machine tools. All ESPRIT milling and turning machining capability, from 2-axis turning to 5-axis milling, is available for any type of mill-turn machine tool, including lathes that perform milling, mills that perform turning, Swiss-style machines and other “integrated mill-turn machining centers.” In the 2010 release, support for these multi-tasking machine tools has been enhanced through increased flexibility in cutting tool configurations and orientations, enabling the support of a wide variety of machines. The newly added support for additional rotary axes, three or more, allows the ESPRIT customer to completely program and easily simulate the most complex and sophisticated machine tools currently available on the market.

For the ESPRIT wire-EDM customer, the 2010 version includes support for EDM machines with rotary axes. This allows EDM programmers to perform wire-EDM cutting in 5- and 6-axis using turn-and-burn (indexing the rotary table), and turn-while-burn full 5-axis simultaneous cutting with a rotary table. This new version also provides EDM programming with an innovative new 4-axis pocketing, no-core cutting, machining cycle.
