ESPRIT Reduces Programming and Machining Time at Aero Components (14-Nov-2007)|
“ESPRIT has helped us substantially reduce our machining costs and take on complex jobs that would have been impossible in the past.”
--- Keith Woodhouse, machinist for Aero Components
Aero Components is an advanced contract machining firm that uses mill-turn machines to produce complex and precision components for the aerospace, medical, semi-conductor, and oil field industries. The company’s machinists, who produce their own computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) programs, were less than satisfied with the previous CAM software because its milling strategies were limited and programs ran at less than optimal speed.
The company switched to ESPRIT because of its much broader range of milling strategies and ability to optimize the speed at which the resulting code runs on the machine. This new CAM software has helped to substantially reduce the amount of time required for programming while increasing the productivity of the company’s CNC machine tools.
