programming. Awkward profiles in wire EDM parts are now cut more efficiently with new support for open profiles in EDM pocketing. When a profile is interspersed with small or oddly shaped openings, the wire can be programmed in Esprit 2017 to ignore those openings for a simple slug drop, then followed up with no-core pocketing that burns away only the small pockets of material that remain. Advancements in Esprit’s ProfitMilling technology improve performance inside closed cavities for better chip evacuation and coolant access, and enhancements to five-axis swarf milling have improved responsiveness to a wider range of unusual part shapes for smoother, more reliable machining, according to DP Technology.


Grinding machine developer ANCA (Wixom, MI, and


Melbourne, Australia) has released its new smart factory management suite, which uses virtual machine monitoring technology to achieve premium grinding efficiencies. The new ANCA Management Suite provides custom- ers with technology to remotely monitor the performance of


their machines, enabling companies to run smart factories by providing live production information to make data-based decisions for operational improvements. Management Suite monitors machine and production in real time and delivers up-to-date information, enhancing visibility and control in manufacturing operations. The software helps reduce costly machine downtime by notifying relevant personnel with an e-mail or SMS when a machine has ceased production, with reasons for the stoppage. The system provides visibility of machine status and activity from the office PC or from any- where if the user is logged into the company’s server. Data analytics are key to improving business processes and this new suite has been designed to provide as much intelligence as possible on machine performance in a simple- to-use interface. The machine analytics can be used to produce highly accurate reports on machine usage, helping to reduce waste and increase overall equipment efficiency.
