Solutions from Esprit

1.cycle time report

In order to take commercial decision for a New product development in CNC machine cycle time report plays a vital role . Many shop floor will experiences the problems to quote your customer in an effective method hence there occurs the chances for not getting first or repeated orders for your CNC shop floor so to over come such obstacles Esprit will be a support system for the machine shop to get a effective quote in a short interval of time. Esprit provides better cycle time calculation before machining, a perfect Tool List & Setup Sheet for shop floor communication, an operation list helps to Analyze & reduce cycle time & down time.Many of the Esprit users are used to say this solution as a high lights of esprit in their testimonial videos where you can surf those testimonials in our blog page.

2.Tools and Cutting parameter

As a owner or Manager or decision maker in a CNC machine shop you should make a questions to yourself as “Is am skill dependent in tool selection and cutting parameter selection in NPD ? If your answer is no obviously you have a cool machine shop,but  most of the machine shop owners are skilled depended that may or may not affect the development graph of the company.Esprit CAM simplifies your tools and cutting parameter selection automatically with KBM (Knowledge base manager),it could recommend better cutting tool & cutting parameter for optimized cycle time. Tools magazines or library can be created by own as per in machine tool magazine accordingly ATC works.

3.Get Accurate NC

Struggling to get error less NC ? Spending more time in developing NC ? Lack of programming knowledge ? such questions can be solve. Select your  sequence of operation and followed by get accurate NC file in single tab in offline ( without stopping the machine). No correction required on Esprit generated NC program.A person with basic computer knowledge & machine knowledge can make NC program (Even without knowledge of G0,G01). While comparing with manual programming Esprit has a advantage of generating  error less cutting coordinates for the CAD input given by end user.The time consumption for Esprit generating NC make a big difference for the company growth,in case of NPD many R&D such as fixture prove out, tool selections, cutting parameter selections are widely solved through Esprit.

4.Fixture prove out

In India the recent automobile news announced by Indian Government is converting all BS 4 model engine to BS 6 model engine in order to control the pollution hence many Automobile sectors are in the stage of developing new BS 6 model engine components hence they have to design their own fixture or ready made fixture at this point every one should prove the fixture for the new development components such activities are easily carried out in offline without ideal of machine.Esprit solid machine simulation & verification helps to avoid collision on work piece, fixture, tool holders, etc.,while machining. It doesn’t required a third party simulation software for multi axis & multitasking machine simulation therefore check your own fixture for the new product development in offline. The post processor for various brands of CNC machine are factory out let proved one this become a cause for the effect to be error less NC file output.

CGTech enhances The VERICUT’s MachiningCloud Connection


VERICUT is a verification and simulation software used to detect CNC programming errors as well as collision checkings and areas of inefficiency. MachiningCloud is an independent provider of CNC cutting tool and workholding product data.

In the latest of VERICUT 7.4, after defining a tooling package on the MachiningCloud, users can directly download all the tool assemblies within the package and use it within VERICUT with significantly fewer steps compared to manually configuring a tool for use in a simulation session.

The process is very simple:
1) First Build a MachiningCloud job containing all your tool assemblies;
2) Next export the job downloading it to your local computer;
3) from within VERICUT click once to import all the tools from the job;
4) And simulate using your tool assemblies what is being created in the MachiningCloud.

Christophe Rogazy, Cloud Evangelist for MachiningCloud further says that “This upgrade eliminates manual steps saving time and further increasing efficiency in the simulation process for VERICUT customers using the MachiningCloud”.

Android Apps for Machinists

Machinist Calculator
The strength of this app is its simplicity. It has simple calculations for milling, turning and a handy scrolling tap drill chart.


Feeds and Speeds for Milling
The title says it all, but dig deeper and the nice thing about this app is the ability to save your machine’s max RPM, max IPM and max HP. With this information stored, simply plug in some details about your cutter and the type of material you want to cut and the app figures out your starting figures for RPM, feedrate, radial and axial DoC and required HP.


Machinist’s Calculator
While the other apps we’ve covered offer basic F&S calculations, this one also solves common trigonometry in an easy to use format. It even provides X-Y coordinates for bolt hole circles.


Machining Mate
This app which is one of the best.This app is perfect & carries all the things which a machinist would want.


Machinist Calc Pro
Ideal for machining professionals and shop owners who want to increase productivity and profits in the design, layout and set-up stages of production and reduce wear and tear on costly cutting tools.


How ENDmills are playing a major role in medical related machining

In today’s world the global medical industry is the fastest growing industries. And cause of this rapid & mature growth in the industry, the need for cost effective machining & competitiveness has become obvious. Recently Mitsubishi Materials has developed dedicated solutions for tool design which is dominantly reducing the cost without compromising with the quality.



Knee & hip replacement are the most carried out surgeries now days. Knee replacement basically consists of three major parts- tibial plate, femoral component & tibial insert.  And in case of hip replacement it consists of four major parts – stem, head, linear & shell. All these critical components are made of difficult to cut materials such as Cobalt chrome, titanium  & UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polythylene).  To machine these components endmills plays versatile role. These endmills are treated with a newly developed N group coating which is the latest product of Mitubishi Materials. The endmills delivers substantially better wear productivity & quality. UHMWPE has extremely long chains, with a molecular mass usually between 2 to 6 millions. The longer chain serves to transfer load more effectively to the polymer backbone by strengthening intermolecular interactions. These results in a very tough material, with the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made. These components are very adhesive cause of more intermolecular interactions & can be machined only with Chromium Nitrade coated endmills cause it has excellent adhesion resistance.
