A complete tool kit to program any part on
ESPRIT delivers production quality G-Code programs
for turning that are highly optimized to minimize cycle times and tool
wear while maximizing part quality. Starting with a complete definition of
the cutting tools and comprehensive / flexible machining cycles, tool path
is quickly built from any 2D or 3D geometry, Solids or Surfaces model to
accommodate any cutting requirements. Built-in simulation and post
processing round out a complete tool kits for programming any part on a
- 2-axis turning
- C- and Y-axis mill-turn
- multi-spindle / multi-turret turning
- "Swiss" style machine support
C and Y axis Mill-Turn...
Combining turning and milling operations
into one G-Code program.
You can combine turning and milling machining
operations in one G-code program with ESPRIT's support of both "C" and "Y"
mill-turn. Choose from milling contour - profile cutting, pocketing, or a
variety of drilling machining cycles. Perform 2 1/2-axis milling
operations on your lathe using its ZXC or ZXY axes. ESPRIT also provides
the tools to perform "Wrap" operations. The X-axis movement is converted
into a rotary C-axis movement, effectively "wrapping" your shapes
(pockets, holes, and contours) around the rotary axis. This makes ESPRIT
an excellent tool for slotting and cross drilling.

ANSI / ISO standard coding for turning
tools, inserts and holders.
ESPRIT's tooling system supports it all, from
standard boring bars to complex custom form tools. The tooling library
uses ANSI/ISO standard coding for regular turning tools, both inserts and
holders, to simplify the process of defining your tooling. During the
creation of the machining cycle and simulation process the definition of
the complete tool (insert, holder, and turret) is used to insure your
confidence and a highly accurate result. Your custom tools can be drawn in
any CAD system, or in ESPRIT, and imported into the tooling library. While
using the ESPRIT SolidTurn Advanced, mill-turn option, the complete
library of milling cutting tools is also available.
- Library of standard inserts - ANSI and ISO
standard inserts for grooving, threading (top notch and lay down), and
turning including square, round, trigon, and diamond
- Library of standard holders - ANSI and ISO
standard holders with 25 turning and boring styles
- Unlimited custom tools and holders with
any geometry C 3-axis and Y 4-axis mill-turn with power tooling
