Premium ‘Lazer cut quality’ CNC Plasma cutter
The FIRECUT XPR high performance CNC plasma cutting table combines the highest quality hardware and software to produce near laser cut quality on mild steel. Using Hypertherm’s TrueHole technology and advanced drive tuning techniques, we are able to produce bolt ready holes with a plate thickness to hole diameter ratio of less than one to one.
The FIRECUT XPR plasma cutting table incorporates a highly efficient sectional fume table reducing the size of the fume extraction system required, compared to other machines.
Available in compact versions (up to 4m by 2m) and rail mounted versions (up to 12m by 5m). Cut parameters are embedded into the CNC able files using Pronest nesting and cut optimisation software, and loaded onto the machine via Ethernet cable or USB stick, greatly reducing the chance of operator error.
EDGE® Connect, Hypertherm’s latest (CNC) platform, delivers unmatched reliability, powerful embedded capabilities, and a high level of customizability. Easy-to-use 19″ touchscreen interface makes operation as quick and easy as possible. Embedded SureCut™ technology maximizes performance, even new operators can be cutting production parts in less than five minutes.
ARC GLIDE TORCH HEIGHT CONTROL
This heavy duty, extremely accurate, height control system increases the number of parts cut per day by 100% and increases the consumable life by 300% without the need for operator intervention. The magnetic torch breakaway, with rapid reinstall and laser pointer for torch alignment, reduces set up times and minimizes down time. Hypernet connectivity allows full control from the CNC and feeds back all data, allowing the remote diagnostics to be accessed from anywhere with Internet connection.

PRONEST NESTING AND CUT OPTIMISATION SOFTWARE
Pronest nesting and cut optimization software is used to embed the part programme with all the required cutting techniques developed over many years. This enable even the novice operator to produce the highest quality plasma cut parts every time.
HIGH PRECISION MOTORS & ENCODERS
Heavy-duty AC servo motors, with high quality encoders, connected to anti-backlash gearboxes and pinions. Controlled using advanced tuning techniques to provide the power and accuracy required to produce near laser cut quality on mild steel. They also provide the acceleration and deceleration required to cut TrueHoles.
ENCLOSED RACKS AND LINEAR SLIDES
Our long axis racks and linear slides are protected from sparks and falling debris which could otherwise cause expensive damage, and therefore greatly reduce the need for regulator maintenance.
AUTOMATIC BEARING AND SLIDE LUBRICATION
Specially formulated lubricating oil is pumped automatically to every linear bearing, greatly extending the life of expensive parts and ensuring smooth motion, essential for high quality cutting.
HEAVY DUTY BRIDGE WITH HEAT COMPENSATION
By mounting one end of the bridge on bearings we ensure that it doesn’t twist if the table expands due to the heat produced by the cutting process. This ensures parts being cut square.
FUME EXTRACTION SYSTEM
High quality fume extraction units with fully automatic filter cleaning are available to suit all sizes of machine and cutting system.
BEVEL & ROTARY PIPE
Bevel and rotary pipe options are available separately or in combination to allow very complex 3D cutting for numerous applications.
OXYFUEL CUTTING TORCH
We can supply all our machines fitted with a fully automatic oxyfuel torch to increase the mild steel cut capacity to 150mm.
