Esprit 2013, available from DP Technology, features the ProfitMilling strategy for two-, three-, four- and five-axis roughing cycles. The high speed roughing cycle enables deeper cuts at increased cutting feeds to remove more material in a shorter amount of time, the company says. The strategy monitors several cutting and machine characteristics rather than controlling just one parameter. Chip load and side-cutter force are managed in toolpath calculation while keeping the engagement angle and material removal rate within a specific range. The strategy also incorporates feedrate changes throughout the tool path and takes advantage of toolpath optimization for specific machine capabilities.
