ESPRIT Additive DED is a full-spectrum CAM system, offering programming, optimization, and simulation for both additive and subtractive processes (DED/WAAM) in one integrated solution. With ESPRIT Additive DED, trajectories can be created for 3, 4 and 5-axis machines.
DED/WAAM processes can be simulated with Simufact Welding by using the trajectories exported from ESPRIT Additive DED.
- DED 3+2: This 3-axis DED cycle is used for builds where the workpiece may be oriented in 5-axis, then built layer-by-layer using a 3-axis process.
- DED 4-Axis: Rotary DED has the same capabilities as 3+2 with the addition of allowing deposition while simultaneously rotating the workpiece around an axis.
- DED 5-Axis: 5-axis DED is used when the part must be tilted dynamically while material is being added. The cycle will automatically calculate simultaneous 5-axis motions to properly tilt the head whenever it is needed for proper material deposition, enabling a simultaneous 5-axis building process that can include timing for any required cooling.
