Camarillo, Calif. — Jan. 27, 2009 — ESPRIT® Mold v10, the latest release of mold software offered by DP Technology, an innovator in the computer-aided-manufacturing market, has been selected as a preferred software by POLKAR Polyester Ürünleri San. ve Tic. A:Ş., an international manufacturer of fiber-reinforced polyester for the automotive sector.
Chosen specifically for its 5-axis machining capabilities, ease of use and full range of high-performance capabilities, ESPRIT Mold proved to be an ideal fit for POLKAR, which was having difficulty producing accurate code for its routing machine tool.
“POLKAR is now using ESPRIT 5-axis to make undercuts, in addition to using smaller tool lengths to cut deep cavities,” said Özgür Yengeç, POLKAR’s technical chief. “We are easily using 5-axis continuous machining with high performance, and we are happy with ESPRIT’s ability to easily create curves and toolpaths of perfect quality — which we couldn’t do with our old system.”
Yengeç also noted that ESPRIT Mold takes stock into account “even when you tilt the axis to create 3-axis strategies without any limitations. It’s beneficial to have software that is easy to use, reliable, powerful and accurate.”
With ESPRIT Mold, POLKAR was able to complete work on the router’s main frame in half of the original time.
“In no time, we produced our first accurate NC code and sent it to the router,” said Emre Köklü, CAM product manager for POLKAR. “With that code, we were able to produce finished POLKAR products.”
Incorporated in 1997, POLKAR, a manufacturer of fiber-reinforced polyester, is a subsidiary of Ege Soğutmacılık A.Ş., a leading manufacturer of transport temperature control systems. Founded in 1984 and incorporated four years later, Ege Soğutmacılık employees more than 300 people and oversees four manufacturing facilities in Turkey and Algeria.
Safkar® and Penguin are well-known brands of the corporation in the mobile air conditioning and transport refrigeration market. Ege Soğutmacılık A.Ş. owns three production subsidiaries, including POLKAR, Safkar Algeria S.A.R.L and Mekar Ltd.
Throughout the years, production has increased for POLKAR, and its production consists primarily of fiber reinforced polyester (FRP) for the automotive sector.
