Share Article

Precision tool and machine manufacturer Star Cutter has entered into a partnership with Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s ESPRIT CAM, a high-performance computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) solution, aimed at assisting manufacturers of complex medical tooling such as hip rasps, rotary files, bone files and drills, etc.

Star Cutter and ESPRIT have established a partnership to aid in the manufacture of complex medical parts, such as this hip rasp.

ESPRIT’s proven ability in easing the programming and production of intricate parts makes it a perfect partner for optimizing the performance of our NXT grinding machines. We are confident this arrangement will help our customers, while also providing new business opportunity for both companies.

Star Cutter Company and Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence have established a partnership that enables the Star Cutter NXT 5-axis grinders to be sold with a seat of pre-loaded ESPRIT CAM software. This packaged solution is aimed at assisting manufacturers of complex medical tooling, such as hip rasps, rotary files, bone files and drills, etc. Having certified ESPRIT post processors on the NXT ensures faster launch and error-free program code every time.

“ESPRIT’s proven ability in easing the programming and production of intricate parts makes it a perfect partner for optimizing the performance of our NXT grinding machines,” said Brad Lawton, Star Cutter Chairman and CEO. “We are confident this arrangement will help our customers, while also providing new business opportunity for both companies.”

“This is our first formalized partnership with a grinding company,” said ESPRIT’s Midwest Operations Manager Vytas Cijunelis, “And Star Cutter was the right choice for us given the NXT’s grinding capability and their team’s process knowledge in producing medical tooling. We look forward to expanding our footprint in this market.”

The NXT grinder is a versatile 5-axis CNC machine with a small footprint, large grind zone and a modular design that quickly adapts to demanding application requirements. ESPRIT uses a digital twin of the manufacturing envelope to simplify the programming process and deliver edit-free G-code. Customers that already have ESPRIT can add the Star Cutter NXT’s digital machine package to their existing license and program the NXT using the software they already own.

Star Cutter will feature an NXT running ESPRIT software for demonstration at its Elk Rapids, Mich. facility. Video and remote demonstrations are also available.
