DP Technology is working closely with some of the leading machine manufacturers to validate their new additive cycles.
The DP Technology teams announce the first commercial version of ESPRIT that includes additive direct energy deposition (DED) cycles. ESPRIT’s additive capabilities include the same intuitive user interface that users expect from the software. The product release includes three-, four- and five-axis DED support. Combined with the subtractive processes and embedded into a single software, DP Technology brings a spectrum of support to hybrid manufacturing.
ESPRIT’s additive DED cycles include additive simulation and verification, as well as global support from ESPRIT’s technical teams.
DP Technology validated their post-processor through collaboration with major machine manufacturers and educational institutions.
“For more than a decade, we’ve been working on additive manufacturing, including research on DED toolpath trajectories and AM thermal simulation. ESPRIT’s additive DED solution is the result of the close collaboration between DP Technology, the industry’s most trusted CAM solution provider, and Grenoble University, the world’s leading research institution on additive DED technology,” says Frederic Vignat, head of the additive department at Grenoble University in France.
The new additive cycle offers users a full-spectrum additive solution, from CAD file to finished part.
