SolidWorks World 2013 Partner Profile: ESPRIT

One of the things we’ve heard from SolidWorks World attendees over the past few years is that you’d like to learn more in advance about the
SolidWorks partners who set up booths in the Partner Pavilion. So now through SolidWorks World 2013, we’ll be posting a series of blog entries about some of the partners you might think about checking out, and the people who will be representing them. Today we hear from ESPRIT.

Tell us about ESPRIT

Since DP Technology was founded by Dan Frayssinet (the “D” in DP) and Paul Ricard (the “P”) in a phone booth in 1982, its mission has been to offer the world the most powerful CAM software ever.  Though it certainly had humble origins, DP Technology was founded on passion, vision and  commitment to excellence — and that hasn’t changed. Our specialty is in providing CAM software that evolves with the needs of the manufacturing industry and ideally stays one step ahead.

What products do you sell for SolidWorks customers?

We are a provider of sophisticated software capable of supporting the world’s most complex and efficient machine tools. By offering solutions for every industry and machining discipline — milling, turning, mill-turn, Swiss and wire EDM —our success lies in helping our customers become more  productive than ever before. The strength of our post processors, solid simulation, toolpath verification and customer support sets us apart from the competition. In short, we continue to care about our customers after the sale is made. We also enjoy strong partnerships with the world’s top machine-tool manufacturers, which supports the success of our mutual customers by ensuring that they’re able to fully maximize the capabilities of their machine tools.

How can ESPRIT products make a SolidWorks user’s life easier?

ESPRIT offers seamless CAD-to-CAM integration that ensures no data is lost during file transfer, and an ease of interoperability that maintains the integrity of the project.  ESPRIT also offers Feature Exchange (FX), which  links design features built inside a CAD system with manufacturing features built inside ESPRIT. Going beyond transferring just the part geometry, the FX technology provides the original CAD Feature Tree directly inside the ESPRIT user interface, including the complete originaldesign intent – features, tolerances, material properties, surface finishes and more.
