ADVANCED CAD/CAM SOFTWARE
Procut CAD/CAM is a cutting software that has been designed and developed in-house by Esprit since 1986 and it incorporates the knowledge and experience that only a machine manufacturer can accrue.
The experience gained from designing, manufacturing, and supporting a wide range of CNC cutting machines helped us to produce informed software applications that will allow you to achieve the very best results from your machine investments.
Procut CAD/CAM software has been designed specifically for flatbed cutting applications and in addition to plasma and flame cutting.
True Hole technology guarantees excellent hole quality with hole diameter to thickness ratios from 1:1 to 2:1 Our Procut software developers then created Smart Hole Technology to allow you to produce holes down to 0.75:1 and up to 5.1. This allows you to produce fantastic bolt-ready holes across a far greater range of diameters than anyone else, giving market-leading cut quality.

Procut Will Boost Your True Hole Possibilities
What is True Hole?
True Hole, patented by Hypertherm, is a technology for mild steel which produces significantly better hole quality than what has been previously possible using plasma.
Bolt hole quality with virtually no taper is delivered automatically without operator intervention.
It is exclusively available for use in conjunction with Hypertherm’s HPRXD plasma systems and the XPR 170 & XPR300 systems.
Is there a maximum thickness for True Hole?
True Hole is automatically applied by Procut software to thicknesses from 3mm up to 25 mm.
Hole diameter to material thickness ratio for True Hole?
Standard True Hole technology coverage, ranges from hole diameter to thickness ratios 2:1 to 1:1.
Superb Holes Up To 5:1 with
The hole diameter to material thickness ratio with True Hole only varies from 2:1 to 1:1.
Having access to large holes with equivalent cut quality to XPR170 & 300 True Hole is a huge advantage for a number of customers in various industries.
Therefore, Esprit’s in-house software development team created Smart Hole for
The Procut software delivers True Hole down to 0.75x material thickness with XPR170 & 300.
This module uses a true-shape algorithm to automatically nest profiles onto plates. Simply specify the quantity of each individual component required and Autonest will systematically generate nests that include all the selected profiles, create CNC programs ready for downloading and produce printouts. The nest files generated are saved in the standard Procut Nesting format thus allowing the user to manually modify any nest once generated by Autonest.
Standard Shapes & 3D Developments
Standard shapes provide both novice and experienced CAD users with a comprehensive library of 151 easy-to-modify profiles, and twenty-one 3D Developments. These libraries save hours when producing repetitive shapes or complex 3D parts, for example, an offset square-to-round transition can be accurately developed quickly.
Marking enables an operator to mark part numbers, positioning marks, fold lines, and any other visual guides through plasma arc marking, a pin stamp marker, or even a simple pen.
This makes secondary manufacturing processes such as forming or welding significantly quicker and easier.
Import files from many Design & CAD Software
DXF Import/Export module allows you to import/export DXF format files from the majority of CAD packages.
DWG Import/Export module allows you to import/export Autodesk DWG format files.
The DSTV Convert module allows NC format files used by building design CAD programs, such as Tekla Structures or Autodesk Advance Steel to be easily converted, saving hours of time with every batch of files.
Outline Text Module
The outline text module is used for cutting letters and numbers out of metal. Usually, this module is used for signage work or branding.
Reduces the number of entities in a drawing, typically when a lot of small lines and arcs are used to create curves. Reducing the number of entities and smoothing curves will improve cut quality. This is useful for imported drawings, especially DXF files where the native software has broken entities into smaller sections during the export process. Also useful with 3D Developments to smooth out curves on designs created.
Allows for an existing drawing, which contains several profiles, to be saved into separate files with an individual profile. This is useful for imported drawings where users can have several profiles in one drawing and when using 3D Developments, to split the development into separate profiles to make nesting of these individual profiles easier.
Helps reduce the number of pierces for a nest of parts, reducing the amount of wear on consumables, and making them last longer. Chain Linking keeps the plasma torch cutting between profiles i.e. it will pierce for profile #1, cut it out and then continue to cut from that profile in the scrap area between profiles onto the start point for profile #2, and so on.
Support & Training
Our UK-based training and support services are second to none with regular CAD/CAM software training courses held at our Nottingham facility for beginners and more experienced users. Also, feel free to contact us for refresher training or if you would like to schedule training for new operators.

“Well done to the team on
“True Hole at 0.75 material thickness is a huge bonus. Prior to we would drill small holes. This is a great improvement to reduce extra tasks!“
“All holes are superb. On thick material, Smart Hole is better than True Hole!“
“Cut quality is fantastic and it makes cutting thin plate much quicker.“
“Procut CAD/CAM software is easy, saves time, and produces results. It literally takes minutes to make a part to having it in our hands. The Navigation is easy and very natural, with some great touches for that little bit of extra speed.”
