Webtool RCV155 – Wire Rope Cutter
The RCV models are designed for sub-sea service and for use in severe working conditions such as offshore; the cutters have been manufactured to meet customers requirements in stainless steel or lightweight aluminium and for ROV applications.
The RCV range of cutters feature hydraulically powered anvil pins for remote actuation. This enables the ROV operator to capture and sever the cable or wire rope via the manipulator arm.
By closing the anvil pin the rope is held in place. A hardened steel guillotine blade is then hydraulically driven through the rope. The blade is returned and the anvil pin retracted ready for the next cut.
