About Esprit

Leading Manufacturer of CNC Plasma & Flame Cutting Machines

Founded in 1986, Esprit Automation Ltd has specialised from day one in the design & manufacture of high-performance CNC thermal-cutting machines and thermal-cutting CAD/CAM software. With our headquarters in Nottingham, England, we offer a full range of CNC plasma cutting and flame cutting machines covering virtually all applications.

Through continued research and development backed by a depth of knowledge and experience, Esprit continues to produce new innovative mechanised plasma cutting solutions and CAD/CAM and Production Management software advances.

Our brand names including Lightning, Viper, Cobra, Arrow and Procut are acknowledged market leaders in thermal cutting. A global prominence is demonstrated through our exports to over thirty countries on four continents.

Esprit selected Hypertherm as it’s exclusive supplier of plasma cutting systems in 1990 and has worked closely since then producing state of the art solutions. Today Esprit Automation is Hypertherm’s principal UK OEM partner and the largest UK Distributor.

The first Esprit plasma-cutting system in 1987 dramatically changed the parameters of CNC plasma cutting, offering a flexibility and ease of use previously unseen. Since that time, our engineers and designers have incorporated numerous advances into the machines and many new models have been released. We have established strategic partnerships with leading component suppliers to ensure that our machines remain at the forefront of technological advancement.

Our Procut software business has been producing advanced CAD/CAM Nesting software for plasma and other flat-bed cutting applications since 1986. The thermal-cutting experience and knowledge base within our company has enabled our team of software developers to integrate the finer points of thermal cutting into the Procut system.

Esprit’s experienced technical support staff work with our network of partners around the world to ensure that our customers achieve the best possible performance from their investment in Esprit CNC technology. Whether it is installation, training or after sales support, in co-operation with our partners we strive to offer the very best service in the industry.

Our customers cover a wide range of metal processing industries including general and precision sheet metal, fabrication, steel service-centres, HVAC ductwork and a wide variety of product manufacturers. Automotive, agricultural and construction machinery, materials handling, food machinery and display equipment are all represented in our customer portfolio. Esprit Automation is focused on the current and future needs of our customer base. Our mission is simple – to provide the very best and most cost-effective mechanised thermal cutting solutions.

We look forward to discussing your application.

  • "Having dealt with Esprit for 8 years now we have purchased 2 machines from them and found them to be extremely well built. The cut quality is excellent from the thinnest to the thickest plates. From sales and management to technical and service all of their team are knowledgeable, helpful and dependable. They have helped us to grow and as such we would always recommend Esprit."
