Cobra

Flexible and Cost Effective Plasma & Flame Cutting

Cobra machines are flexible in design and can be specified in a wide range of sizes from 3×1.5m to 12x3m. These flexible rail-based machines are available with virtually the full range of Hypertherm plasma cutting systems and oxy-fuel flame cutting. Hypertherm HyPerformance plasma delivers the latest True Hole capability when integrated with an Esprit Cobra machine. The machine features dual side direct rack and pinion drive in the X axis and twin linear bearings and direct rack & pinion drive in the Y axis delivering smooth, precise contouring for optimum cut quality. The EDGE Pro CNC coupled digitally to AC brushless drives with fibre optics offers high precision and ultimate reliability.

The EDGE Pro CNC incorporates all the latest technology for optimised machine performance and ease of use when plasma cutting or flame cutting.
The Ethernet digital on-machine network ensures the very best contouring performance for accurate parts. The intuitive user interface and on-screen wizards allow even inexperienced operators to achieve great results. Closely integrated with plasma and flame cutting systems, the EDGE Pro facilitates maximum productivity.

HyPerformance Plasma cuts fine feature parts with superior quality and consistency, virtually eliminating the cost of secondary operations.
Available in four sizes, the HPR XD plasma cutting systems cover all applications. Cutting mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium from gauge to 50mm and beyond, the HPR XD units produce high quality, consistent results over the life of the consumables. HyPerformance plasma delivers unprecedented cutting speed & quality.

Hypertherm LongLife Air & Oxygen plasma cutting systems offer heavy duty high productivity capability with oxygen cut quality. HySpeed and MAXPRO200 systems have patented LongLife consumable technology which gives dramatically longer consumable life than competitors and much lower operating costs. Systems in the range include the HySpeed HSD130 – a 130A system with the fastest cut speeds in its class.

The latest Powermax systems from Hypertherm are fitted to the Cobra machine. The reliable inverter based design delivers even better cut quality and cutting speeds. Consumable life is also improved and Powermax plasma cutting systems offer the lowest running costs in their class. Fully integrated with the Cobra CNC machine, these units will cut mild steel, galv, stainless and aluminium. Powermax systems are easy to use and require virtually no maintenance.

Flame Cutting Systems

Oxy-fuel cutting can cut carbon steels up to 300mm and beyond with a good, clean square cut. Cutting speeds are slower than plasma but additional cutting torches can be added at relatively low cost so multiple torch cutting can boost productivity. Propane or Acetylene (or other gases on request) can be specified as the fuel gas. Options such as automatic torch ignition and capacitive height control are available.

Cobra: Engineered For Productivity & Flexibility

Cobra machines are flexible and can be specified in a wide range of sizes from 3 x 1.5 m to 12 x 3 m. These flexible rail-based machines are available with virtually the full range of Hypertherm plasma cutting systems and oxy-fuel flame cutting.

Cobra is designed to exploit plasma & flame cutting technology. Both cutting processes can be specified for full cutting flexibility from gauge to 300mm

Cobra machines are designed using the latest 3D solid modelling techniques to facilitate precise manufacture in our Nottingham factory.

Laser spot identification to locate plate edges simplifies machine setup. One of the many time saving features incorporated into the Cobra machine range.

Plate marking for part numbers, bending lines or marking out for assembly is available on the Cobra; Arc marking or Pin-matrix marking are available.
