Fully Optimised for High Precision Plasma Cutting

Esprit Automation

Esprit Lightning HD machines are precision compact-bed machine tools for high-precision CNC plasma cutting and are available in a range of popular sizes from 3.0m x 1.5m upwards. Designed on laser cutting machine principles, the Lightning HD fully exploits the latest Hypertherm HPR XD plasma cutting processes and produces clean, square, dross-free cuts on a wide range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. High-power digital AC drive systems with precision gearboxes and dual direct-drive rack and pinions in the X axis and direct-drive rack and pinion in the Y axis produce smooth motion with high speed and acceleration. Twin hardened and ground linear bearings in both axes mounted to fully machined heavy-duty fabrications provide high accuracy and repeatability. The Lightning HD can be specified with one or two Hypertherm HPR XD Torches.
