126 MMS January 2017 SYSTEMS AND SOFTWARE DP Technology's Esprit CAM software features ProfitTurning, a lathe roughing strategy designed to significantly reduce machine cycle time, increase precision and improve quality control. This high- speed roughing strategy for OD, ID, face cutting and other tasks is said to be fast, secure and efficient while extending tool life through minimized wear. The ProfitTurning tool path maintains con- sistent cutting forces and chip loads, enabling increased cutting speeds, the company says. CAM SOFTWARE'S ROUGHING STRATEGY BOOSTS LATHE PRODUCTIVITY E D ITO R J E D D CO LE , jc o l e @ m m s o n l i n e.c o m By employing trochoidal turning and controlled engagement techniques, the toolpath strategy also reduces vibration and residual stresses, which makes it well-suited to thin walls or hard materials, especially super alloys, the company says. Esprit 2016 uses a physics-based cut ting engine that formulates unique strategies for each cutting challenge and provides the foundation for technologies such as ProfitTurning. The software inputs all relevant factors in the toolpath algorithm such as tool material, tool shape, workpiece material, tool speed, feed rate, chip deforming, chip load, machine tool power, acceleration and deceleration. This helps to establish complete control of the cutting environment, allowing for optimal cutting everywhere along the tool path, the company says.
