DP Technology launches ESPRIT® Additive Suite for AM process simplification

August 22, 2017

DP Technology, Montpellier, France, has launched the ESPRIT® Additive Suite, designed to simplify the full Additive Manufacturing process, from CAD model to final part. According to DP Technology, the suite features programming, optimisation and simulation for direct metal deposition, powder bed and subtractive manufacturing. The new suite is expected to be available to customers beginning in mid-2018, and will reportedly deliver machine-optimised job files and complete control of the Additive Manufacturing process.

For hybrid machine tools — CNC machines with additive capabilities — the ESPRIT Additive app for direct metal deposition will offer integrated programming and simulation for multi-tasking, multi-function, multi-channel additive and subtractive machine tools and integrate with the ESPRIT CAM system.

The ESPRIT Additive app for powder bed fusion systems will operate as a versatile printer driver to supports the full process of Additive Manufacturing, from orienting the part and creating supports to optimising the build, slicing and nesting and generating a job file.

“This decade has been characterised by the widespread, mainstream use of 5-axis machining processes, but we are about to enter the decade of additive: within 10 years, we anticipate that 10 percent of machines will have additive capabilities,” stated Chuck Mathews, Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President at DP Technology.

“We are redefining the meaning of ‘full-spectrum’ with the ESPRIT Additive Suite, which provides a new workflow and new process for a new class of machines, both additive and hybrid.”
