Viper

Heavy Duty Precision Plasma & Flame Cutting

Viper machines are heavy duty workhorses and can be specified for virtually any application. Available in cutting widths from 1.5m to 6.5m and with virtually any cut length, up to 8 plasma or flame cutting torches can be fitted for the highest production capability. Viper machines are constructed from precision fabricated & machined components and are fitted with powerful digital AC brushless drives, machine tool grade linear bearings and direct drive rack and pinion transmissions for precision contouring performance. These machines are suitable for precision cutting in the most demanding of applications.

Viper Design Features

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 Viper 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 Viper 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 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.

Viper: Engineered For Heavy Duty Applications By Experts

Viper machines are heavy duty workhorses and can be specified for virtually any application. They are constructed from precision fabricated & machined components and are suitable for precision cutting in the most demanding of applications.

The precision gearboxes fitted to Viper machines are mounted on twin linear bearings for smooth and precise power transmission.

As standard, Viper machines are fitted with the unique Esprit perimeter safety system to protect workers. All Esprit machines are fully CE marked.

Larger Viper machines have an even heavier construction. Specialised cutting tables ensure a clean working environment even on very large machines.

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