MACH 2018 Exhibition Roundup


Share this article:

It was a real pleasure to be at MACH again this year. It was probably the busiest MACH of the last 10 years with more visitors and stands than before.

Launching our latest innovation
At Esprit, there was an extra reason to be excited at this year’s show. After several months of development, we launched our IRIS platform (Intelligent Real-Time Information System), which which gives machine operators an unprecedented degree of control over their machines and propelled Esprit directly into the Industry 4.0 sphere.

MACH was for us the ideal event to ask for feedback to anyone who passed by our stand. The reactions were very positive with many blown away by what IRIS could offer. One customer told us “I’m fascinated to see the actual cutting from my phone” and someone else said “This looks great – having Esprit monitor the health of the machine and informing me when something looks off would save me so much time!”

The perfect partnership for high definition plasma cutting
We also brought to the show our flagship Lightning HD plasma cutting machine, which we partnered with Hypertherm’s next generation XPR300 cutting system. Visitors to our stand were amazed by the cut quality of the samples that were produced on this system. Some even thought that we had cut them with a laser machine!

A resounding success, thanks to you
On Friday, we all returned home with a very satisfied feeling. We got a lot more sales enquiries than we hoped for, have seen many of our customers again and signed up again for a bigger stand on MACH 2020!

  • "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."
