ESPRIT 2002 CAM SOFTWARE

Aim: To Generate NC code for machining simple components on CNC turning and milling
machines.
Description :
ESPRIT 2002 is CAM software, which is capable of generating NC codes for specific
controller. ESPRIT has the features, which enables the software to handle different
machining processes such as milling, turning, wire EDM etc. The steps required for NC code
generation for any fixed machine format are as listed below.
1. Drafting the part in ESPRIT
2. Defining the features along which machining is to be carried out
3. Applying machining Strategy from operations menu
4. Simulating the machining
5. Generating NC codes
6. Transferring Codes to NC machine
For generating the NC codes one has to draft the part geometry and define the features,
and machining operations.
CNC MILLING:
Sequence of steps:
First shape of milling contour is generated using create menu
Createboundary geometryrectangle
Then select the geometry and create features using create menu
Createfeaturesauto chain
Machining can be added using machining menu

NC CODE GENERATION :
After adding machining operations to the Project List, these operations are converted to NC
code and here one can choose NC code for a particular machine format. Figure 3 shows the
NC code generation option for FANUC controller. The project List order will be the order of
the operations in the NC code.
