KnowledgeBASE

Leverage Strategic Assets

 

Free your lead CNC programmers from repetitive parts programming, let them focus on strategic process planning to further improve your best practices — and take your enterprise to a whole new level of production machining.

PRODUCTIVITY

Streamline Programming 
With ESPRIT's KnowledgeBase™ the days of relying on your memory to recall what worked before are gone. In KnowledgeBase™, process-specific information is stored securely and is readily available to any operator or programmer. ESPRIT uses the accumulated "knowledge" of your shop's best practices and preferred methods to automate CNC programming. Streamline your parts programming with ESPRIT's KnowledgeBase™ and achieve an unprecedented degree of automation, quality, and consistency.

Close the Productivity Loop 
The multi-user SQL database built into ESPRIT's KnowledgeBase™ closes the loop between CNC programmers and the shop floor by providing a central repository for accumulating shop-wide machining experiences. Refine your best practices using real-world input and apply them automatically for flawless consistency throughout your enterprise.

AUTOMATION

Sharpen Your Competitive Edge 
Your processes are always up to date with KnowledgeBase™ — each time a process in KnowledgeBase™ is used to program a part, the process is automatically retrieved and updated to reflect improved methods, refining your machining in a cycle of continuous evolution. KnowledgeBase™ eliminates guesswork, and shop-wide consistency means unprecedented manufacturing productivity and profitability.

Part-Feature KnowledgeBase 
ESPRIT's Automated Feature Recognition is a powerful KnowledgeBase™ component providing CNC programmers with a new level of productivity-enhancing speed and accuracy. Automated Feature Recognition subdivides a given part into features like pockets, slots, shoulders, and holes. Each feature has a set of known physical characteristics including height, thickness, draft, volume, and area. This KnowledgeBase™ component automatically categorizes these features into feature cases based on a shop's standards, terminology, and each feature's characteristics. Examples of feature cases described in KnowledgeBase™ include: Large Open Pocket, M10 x 1.5 Tapped Hole, Thin Wall Part Face, and O-Ring Groove. With KnowledgeBase™ your programming automatically starts with a clear definition of what you are about to machine.

CENTRAL DATABASE

Process KnowledgeBase 
The Process KnowledgeBase provides detailed tool control and extensive process automation, automatically choosing the most suitable process to machine a given feature — including machining cycles, cutting tools, speeds and feeds, and all associated machining parameters. When a process is applied, process steps are automatically adjusted to accommodate the feature geometry and other feature characteristics. Programmers can also easily create new processes and update details of existing processes with the Process Manager. All machining parameters are presented in a color-coded display for a clear visual representation of each parameter's source and condition.

Speeds and Feeds KnowledgeBase 
A Speeds and Feeds calculator presents the best cutting speeds and feeds for each machining situation based upon the part material class and condition, cutting tool style and material, machining operation, and axial and radial depths of cut. The Speeds and Feeds KnowledgeBase Manager allows programmers to add and update cutting speeds for any given situation, and the optional CUTDATA™ database simplifies programming with over 100,000 speed and feed recommendations.
