SolidMillTurn is a comprehensive CAM system specifically designed for
programming parts for multi-function lathes and mill-turn machines.
SolidMillTurn features an extensive suite of
machining cycles for 2-5 axis milling, including full simultaneous 3-axis
and 5-axis 3D multi-surface/solid machining. SolidMillTurn provides the
freedom to use milling and turning cutting cycles in any combination and
provides control over the Z, X, “C”, “Y”, and “B” axes common to these

multi-axis tool movements.
Get the power and flexibility to perform 5-axis
simultaneous multi-surface/solid milling and 5-axis index milling on your
mill-turn machine tool. ESPRIT’s full 5-axis control lets you easily
program parts demanding compound angles or non-perpendicular multi-axis
tool movements, such as those required for tool holders, oil drilling
tools, complex valves, and gear products. The 5-axis control is available
for ESPRIT’s Advanced and FreeForm machining cycles including Facing,
Contouring, Pocketing, Hole Making, 3D Finishing and more.

Five levels of
ESPRIT SolidMillTurn is offered in
five levels of functionality which provide support for the widest variety
of parts and machine tools. “C”-axis rotary milling offers Wrap
Pocketing, Contouring and Drilling for use on the Face or OD of your
parts. For off-center, ”Y”-axis milling, ESPRIT features an extensive set
of milling cycles including Facing, Pocketing, Contouring, Rest Machining,
Hole Making and more. All of these machining cycles are available for use
with “C”, “Y” and “B” axis for working on a part at compound angles, or on
the Face, ID or OD.

functionality include Traditional, Advanced, Production, FreeForm and
Synchronized Milling and
environment for milling and turning together.
Use ESPRIT SolidMillTurn in
conjunction with ESPRIT SolidTurn to program any combination of mill-turn
(2-5 axis) and turning cutting cycles, using one or more spindles with
multiple turrets (up to 22-axis), in one session complete with
synchronization, optimization and solid simulation. ESPRIT is the one CAM
system that provides a completely integrated programming environment for
milling and turning together, at one time, on one machine tool.
- A comprehensive
solution for programming any combination of 2-5 axis milling and turning
cutting cycles, including full programming support for 4th and 5th axis
("C" and "B" axis).
and analyze part features, and more ...!
The array of knowledge base
tools in ESPRIT enables you to automatically recognize and analyze part
features (Feature Recognition), and easily create, store, and re-use
machining processes (Process Manager). In addition, you can easily
synchronize and optimize machining cycles through a combined display of
cutting operations and cycle times (Sync List). ESPRIT then dry-runs
simulations of the resulting machining processes in dynamic 3D images that
show the whole part on screen, including each spindle and turret, and the
cutting tools. ESPRIT also includes a comprehensive feeds, speeds and
material database and an ANSI/ISO coded tooling library, providing users
with optimum feedrates and tools for machining parts.

Assures your NC programs
are of the highest quality.
Solid Simulation and Verification tool allows you to quickly and easily
dry run your programs on the computer to verify accuracy, and assures your
CNC programs are of the highest quality, all before ever cutting a chip.
The entire machining environment including spindle(s), turret(s), B-axis
heads, and all your tooling is clearly represented in dynamic 3D solid
images. Meanwhile, all the machine’s movements, including sliding head
stock, are accurately represented to promote complete confidence in the
quality of your G-code program.
