MEX/ DP Technology Increasing productivity with patent- pending milling strategy
At MEX, experts at the DP Technology booth will demonstrate features of the company's Esprit CAM software.
One highlight at theDP Technolgy booth is the Esprit Knowledge Base. This software enables the programmer or operator to determine the best method to machine a part or feature by automatically selecting the most appropriate machining cycle, cutting tool and machining parameters with the push of a button. The multi-user SQL database built in Knowledge Base closes the loop between CNC programmers and the shop floor by providing a central repository for accumulating shop-wide machining experiences, the company notes.
Today, manufacturers are intensely competitive and are constantly looking for new ways to produce quality parts in shorter periods at lower costs. Esprit’s high-speed cycles are said to increase productivity.
According to DP Technology, Esprit’s new, patent-pending Profit Milling Strategy for 2, 3, 4 and 5-axis roughing cycles enables users to remove more material more quickly. It optimises engagement angle, chip load, lateral cutter force and machine acceleration to achieve optimal results. As such the Profit Milling cycle reduces machine-tool cycle time, increases tool life, decreases programing time, reduces energy consumption and significant improves productivity - even with light and medium-duty machine tools. The company claims that test results have shown that Profit Milling typically reduces cycle time by 75% compared to a traditional concentric roughing strategy.
A more advanced, productive and safe cutting method for high-speed roughing is Profit Turning. This new technology is based on engaging control strategy and tool selection, which helps eliminate adverse effects resulting from traditional turning methods, thereby increasing productivity, DP Technolgy says.
At MEX, DP Technology will be in Hall 3, Booth D60.
