Dutch company Holmatro Industrial Equipment has introduced a series of widely-applicable hydraulic cutters designed for maintenance, recycling and other industrial purposes. The new cutters, which are also suited to protracted use under the most testing circumstances, are available in two basic models – mobile and stationary.
Made of high-grade aluminium, the mobile cutters are strong but also lightweight and portable. Weighing 15.2 kg and upwards, these are ideal for use ’in the field’, for example to remove old pipelines at petrol stations, to demolish buildings or to cut electricity and telephone cables.
The stationary cutter has been made from high-grade steel and has been developed for production processes involving the repeated cutting or tearing of objects at a fixed point on the production line, for example for cutting cables in the cable recycling industry. The main features of this model include its durability (high load frequency) and ergonomics (prolonged physical demands). Increased weight compared to the mobile cutter is offset by hanging the stationary cutter from a balancer. To reduce the physical demands on the operator, the stationary model has also been fitted with a unique rotation mechanism by means of which it can be turned to any position and any angle, thereby eliminating the need to place objects in a particular position before cutting. This feature saves time and improves production efficiency, according to Holmatro.
For both the mobile and stationary cutters, various blade designs are available for a broad range of applications such as cutting telephone, electric, ground and steel cables, rod, risers, steel plate, tube profiles, fuel pipes, brick constructions, (window and door) frames, and wood. Areas of application can include vehicle recycling and demolition, as well as the recycling of refrigerators and other appliances. Since all blade types are interchangeable and can be switched quickly and simply, individual cutters can be used for a range of purposes.
