Hexagon AB has announced the signing of an agreement to acquire D.P. Technology Corp., developer and supplier of computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology. 

The ESPRIT CAM System, its flagship solution, is a smart manufacturing solution for machining applications. Supporting any class of CNC machine via a common interface and workflow, it provides CNC machine programming, optimization and simulation for a range of precision manufacturing applications.

Known for its machine-optimized, edit-free G-code (toolpath), ESPRIT leverages a digital twin simulation platform to model the finished part, tools, and CNC machine. AI-based algorithms eliminate manual data input and provide machine operators with assurance of what will happen on the shop floor. The result—simplified programming, increased tool life and utilization, reduced cycle times and improved productivity. 

“D.P. Technology is an innovator with a strong focus on building smarter, data-driven manufacturing solutions. When combined with our production software portfolio, it cements our market-leading position in CAM, particularly around CNC manufacturing processes, and accelerates the development of our Smart Manufacturing portfolio,” says Hexagon president and CEO Ola Rollén. “Additionally, the D.P. Technology team has built excellent working relationships with leading machine tool providers and other manufacturing technology experts, which will prove invaluable in our open and interoperable manufacturing ecosystem approach.”
