About Us

COBRA Technology (Tecnologias Cobra S.A.) commenced operations in Chile in September 1998. During the last nine years COBRA has developed into a world class cathode manufacturing and cathode refurbishment service provider. The scope of the operations has grown to include spare parts sales, a hydraulic workshop, on-site maintenance and service of cathode handling equipment .

COBRA’s plant is strategically located in Antofagasta, Chile with a modern facility and over 100 employees. Antofagasta, located in the heart of the Chilean Copper Belt, offers a deep seaport with a skilled and competitive work force. Chile has signed free trade agreements with more countries then any other country in the world. This fact is a major advantage when shipping COBRA’s products worldwide.

Since its start, COBRA has grown to include five principle products:

  • Permanent Cathode Supply
  • Permanent Cathode Repair
  • Spare OEM Parts
  • Services
  • Automation Upgrades.

Cathodes fabricated by COBRA are installed in both Electrowinning and Electrorefining tank houses throughout the world. COBRA cathodes work equally well in all cathode material handling equipment supplied by any of the equipment manufacturers.
