DP Technology continuously forges partnerships
with academia to accelerate smart manufacturing

The ESPRIT CAM & Smart Manufacturing seminar hosted by DP Technology in Beijing, China on September 22, 2016 was a great success.DP Technology along with the College of Electromechanical Engineering at Beijing Union University and the Beijing Intelligent Mechanical Innovative Design Engineering Research Center hosted the ESPRIT CAM & Smart Manufacturing seminar on September 22, 2016.          

DP Technology joined the College of Electromechanical Engineering at Beijing Union University and the Beijing Intelligent Mechanical Innovative Design Engineering Research Center to host the ESPRIT CAM & Smart Manufacturing seminar in Beijing on September 22, 2016. The seminar brought into focus the most critical manufacturing topics in China today in order to better support the ten-year national plan, Made in China 2025. The Made in China 2025 program promotes the transfer into smart manufacturing, improves applications in smart manufacturing and fosters the next generation in a wide array of manufacturing industries. The event was attended by more than 60 people from local manufacturing companies, universities and members of the press.  The seminar was a joint speaking engagement for outstanding businessmen and technicians. It featured many topics to support attendees and ESPRIT users on their path to success, including Industry 4.0, smart manufacturing, manufacturing automation and the partnership between industry and academia.           

Guang Cheng, Dean of College of Electromechanical Engineering of Beijing Union University, addressed the current status and major trends in the future of smart manufacturing from historical, conceptual and practical aspects. Mr. Cheng stated that the College of Electromechanical Engineering is committed to developing high quality application engineers with an international point of view. He also stated that, "We would like to facilitate cooperation with DP Technology to further the development of smart manufacturing. The current research focus of Beijing Intelligent Mechanical Innovative Design Engineering Research Center covers a wide range of smart manufacturing technologies, including prototype design and manufacturing, human-machine interaction and usability testing, and smart manufacturing and service."          

"With more than thirty years´ experience, ESPRIT CAM is the only software which is capable of   supporting B-axis multi-tasking, 2-5 axis milling, 2-22 axis turning and 2-22 axis, Wire EDM and offers a platform which gives users customized solutions through any object-oriented programming language. With customers across the world, ESPRIT CAM has been applied in a wide range of industries, including aeronautics and astronautics, automotive, industrial machinery, education, medical machinery, energy and so on.
