Esprit announces extended support for Mazak Smooth Ai CNC

Esprit by DP Technology has announced extended support for Mazak Smooth Ai CNC. Esprit produces machine-optimised, edit-free G-code programs, programmes optimisation, and machine simulation for Mazak’s machine tools. The extended support offered by Esprit for Mazak’s new Smooth Ai CNCs includes the ability to utilise the Esprit digital twin inside the CNC. This new capability is the result of years of collaborative partnership between DP Technology and Mazak Japan.

With this extended support, the Esprit project data is synchronised with the Mazak Smooth Ai CNC. The synchronised project data includes the part and stock models, workholding, tooling, work offsets, tool offsets, and G-code programme. With the synchronisation between Esprit CAM and Mazak Smooth Ai, users can now preview the machining process virtually on the CNC, using the Esprit digital twin, before executing the programme on the CNC machine. As a result, manual data input is eliminated, and the machine operator is offered greater assurance of the machining process. This results in shorter setup and prove-out times, and higher quality first-article run-offs.
