Flame and Gas Cutting Machines

Effective, Low Cost Cutting Technology

CNC 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 flame cutting. Heating and cutting gases are controlled by the EDGE Connect CNC and a rapid pre-heating system is specified as standard on all 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 CNC flame cutting machines.

Esprit Machines Offer High Quality CNC Flame Cutting

Optional accessories include an automatic torch ignition system for allowing remote lighting of cutting torches

Esprit Viper machines are large-bed CNC portal cutting machines for up to eight plasma or flame cutting stations. Designed and manufactured as precision machine tools, the Viper machines feature heavy-duty floor mounted rails, hardened and ground linear bearings, Powerful digital AC drive systems, precision gearboxes and rack and pinion drives for excellent machine performance. Cutting width can be specified between 1.5m and 6.5m; cutting length is effectively unlimited. Viper machines can be specified with Hypertherm HPR or conventional plasma cutting systems up to 800A or flame torches for the thicker material ranges.

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 a range of Hypertherm plasma cutting systems with a range of other plate cutting and marking options. Bed sizes are from 3×1.5m and can be specified up to 3m wide and 20m in length.

  • "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."
