ESPRIT Mold v9 computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software will be exhibited by CAM industry innovator DP Technology at the Shenzhen International Machinery and Moulds (SIMM) Exhibition 2008, to take place March 28-31 at the Shenzhen Exposition Center, in Shenzhen, China.
As the most extensive professional mold and machinery exhibition in South China, SIMM draws industry specialists with advanced plastic, packaging and printing equipment, in addition to precision moulds and technology from all over the world.
Opportunities for one-on-one demonstrations and presentations of new features available within the latest generation of ESPRIT Mold will be made available at the show, where visitors can also expect interaction with staff from DP Technology.
The latest release of ESPRIT Mold includes significant performance increases for the 3D programmer that results in the reduction of cycle times of 25-50 percent or more while simultaneously increasing part quality and reducing programming time and effort.
ESPRIT Mold is a member of the ESPRIT family of CAM software, which also includes programming for 2-5 axis milling, 2-22 axis turning, 2-5 axis wire EDM, and multitasking mill-turn machining and B-axis milling.
Each year, a new version of the ESPRIT Mold software is released, providing users with significant advancements. This particular release incorporates a large number of advancements that include a new geometric kernel that provides support for a wider variety of solid and surface part geometry, enhanced 3-axis machining cycles for increased performance, improved user interface - making it easier and quicker to create toolpath -improvements to the existing 5-axis machining cycles, and a new 5-axis "AutoTilt" machining cycle that automatically creates a collision free 5-axis machining cycle from existing 3-axis toolpath. ESPRIT Mold is designed to run on both Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Vista operating systems.
