Established 1986

Oxy-fuel flame cutting machines continue to play an important part in industry. The Esprit Viper, Lightning S and Cobra machines are rail based machines designed for multi-head oxy-fuel flame cutting. Heating and cutting gases are controlled by the EdgePro CNC and a rapid pre-heating system is specified as standard on both machines to minimise plate pre-heating times. Propane or Acetylene are the most commonly selected fuel gases, although other fuel gases can be specified. Long series cutting torches with long lasting nozzles are specified on these ranges of machines.

Optional accessories include an automatic torch ignition system for allowing remote lighting of cutting torches - particularly useful on larger machines. Capacitive torch height controls ensure that the nozzle is always kept at the optimum distance from the plate which gives optimum cut quality - of course the torch raises between cuts for fast traverse moves and raises when piercing the plate after pre-heating.

Of course, the Viper and Cobra machines can both be fitted with a range of plasma cutting systems to work alongside the oxy-fuel flame cutting torches.

The Esprit Cobra is a modern rail based machine and can be specified with between 1.5m and 3m cutting width and up to 12m cutting length. The Cobra can have up to two plasma cutting heads and up to six oxy-fuel flame cutting heads. Cobra machines are dual side direct rack and pinion drive in the X axis and feature linear bearings and direct rack and pinion drive in the Y axis. Hypertherm HyPerformance HPR-XD plasma up to 400A can be specified with the Cobra. EdgePro CNC & Bosch digital brushless AC drives complete the machine specification - giving the Cobra machines smooth precision motion and high reliability.

The latest Esprit Lightning S machines have an innovative linked-rail design which delivers high machine stability. Thousands of hours of engineering development have produced a machine which delivers high quality and productivity not normally associated with rail based machines. The heavy duty machined fabrications combine with precision linear guidance, rack and pinion transmissions and digital brushless drives to give smooth, precise motion for the very highest cut quality. The Lightning S can be specified with up to 6 oxy-fuel flame cutting heads, a range of Hypertherm plasma cutting systems and a range of other plate cutting and marking options. Bed sizes are from 3x1.5m and can be specified up to 3m wide and 20m in length.
