ESAB Acquires Swift-Cut Automation

With user-friendly software, the Swift-Cut Pro range offers high-speed precision cutting at a low cost, providing a solution for affordable in-house metalcutting up to 25 mm.

ESAB has acquired Swift-Cut, a manufacturer of light industrial CNC plasma and waterjet cutting machines based in England.

"Swift-Cut solutions enable fabricators of all sizes to leverage the power of CNC technology to shift from manual to automated cutting operations, bringing metal cutting in-house and expanding services," said John Boisvert, VP, Global Cutting and Aftermarket. "Swift-Cut complements ESAB's global leadership portfolio in high-precision, high-productivity, heavy-duty automated cutting systems, plasma beveling, CAD/CAM software and cloud-connected cutting analytic tools with tailored machines and solutions for light industrial fabricators. Swift-Cut mechanized systems deliver high-precision cutting speeds combined with an affordable investment, ease-of-use and exceptional aftercare service and support."

Swift-Cut offers four table sizes ideal for smaller spaces: 1,250 mm x 1,250 mm (4' x 4'), 2,500 mm x 1,250 mm (8' x 4'), 3,000 mm x 1,500 mm (10' x 5') and 4,000 mmx 2,000 mm (13' x 6.5'). Systems are available with ESAB and alternative power sources for multigas and air-plasma cutting. Swift-Cut's easy-to-use software allows anyone with a basic knowledge of computers to operate the CNC plasma cutting or waterjet cutting system. Minimal training and set-up time mean the table will be operational almost immediately.

"ESAB will provide global scale to Swift-Cut's sales and services with the expanded global supply chain, engineering and manufacturing capabilities," said Phil Camp, Managing Director, Swift-Cut. "We expect the synergies of these two businesses will lead to exciting new products and accelerate expansion into markets previously not yet served by Swift-Cut."
