Original Press Release:

Now Available for ESPRIT CAM, WinTool Add-In From Tool Database Software Developer, DATOS

Camarillo, CA- CAM Market leader, DP Technology announces the immediate availability of the WinTool Add-In from third party developer DATOS (Zurich, Switzerland). This Commercial Application is supported by DATOS to enable ESPRIT users to directly access WinTool, a tool database software containing a variety of catalogues from the leading cutting tool manufacturers. The WinTool Add-In is available on-line from the ESPRITAdd-In Store at The WinTool Add-In is launched inside ESPRIT when the WinTool button is selected; ESPRIT users can then assemble their cutting tools from tool manufacturer-specified databases that contain exact tool parameters for flute length, collision lengths, corner radii, and setup tolerances. The WinTool database automatically transfers the entire tool list and cutting tool parameters into the ESPRIT CAM system for use in creating the tool path. The Cut Data Advantage: For each cutting tool assembly, the WinTool database stores the corresponding cutting conditions, organizing them by material. When generating the NC-program for each cutting assembly (tool), WinTool automatically selects the best cutting conditions from its tool archive based on the part material and cutting situation and presents them to the ESPRIT user for verification. Because the cutting tool list consists of only manufacturer- specified tools, each with a clearly defined tool setup, the result is shorter setup time, longer tool life, and faster machining. For example, when setting up a new tool with more than one dedicated cutting edge, WinTool provides the crucial setup tolerances to avoid tool breakage/damage. In turning applications involving a form tool, the WinTool database supplies the appropriate definition of the zero point, thus ensuring accurate tool setup without delay.
