Cable recycling and production

Cable recycling and production

Cutting cables (ground, telephone, electro and steel) is a skill on its own. Generally, this type of cable consists of countless small wires and strands which, during cutting actions, often inadvertently get in between the cutter blades. Situations like this cause loss of capacity. Moreover, it has proven to be detrimental to the life span of cutting tools. Therefore, Holmatro has developed cutter blades with a special blade guide. This feature keeps the blades straight in relation to each other and prevents them from separating or becoming distorted.

Holmatro's cable cutters are compact and lightweight. The supple guillotine action of the knife makes them practically silent. The cutters can be used in all positions, even under water. For (heavy) cutting work, for example in manufacturing processes, heavier hydraulic cutters are available. Read more about both cutter types below:

Holmatro cable cutters

Holmatro steel cable cutters are suitable for cutting of steel cables, solid steel and underground cables. Power cable cutters are suitable for cutting of underground cables and telephone cables.

Mobile Cutters

Holmatro mobile cable cutters

Holmatro hydraulic mobile cutters are specially developed for use ‘in the field’. For this model, the accent is placed on mobility. Mobile cutters are constructed from high-grade aluminium resulting in strong yet very light tools. The pump units are also specially developed for mobile use. The pumps, electric- or petrol-driven, are compact and light in weight, enabling work to be carried out at locations that are difficult to access.

For cable cutting blade type "10 cable" is developed. This blade type contains a special blade guiding that keeps the blades straight in relation to each other and prevents them from separating or becoming distorted.

Stationary cutters

Holmatro stationary cutters

Holmatro hydraulic stationary cutter are specially developed for continuous use, like, for example, processes whereby repeated tasks (cutting, flattening, and tearing) are carried out at a fixed point on the production line. For this model, the accent is placed on durability (high load frequency) and ergonomics (prolonged physical demands). Stationary cutters are constructed from high-grade steel. A balancer compensates the weight increase in comparison to the portable aluminium model. The hydraulic pump is also adapted to meet the demands of continuous use.

Stationary cutters are equipped with a rotation mechanism that makes it possible to rotate a tool in any direction and under any angle. The operator can cut objects without first having to place them in a particular position. This feature enables higher productivity levels. Of greater importance is the fact that the physical demands made on the operators were been greatly reduced.

For cable cutting blade type "10 cable" is developed. This blade type contains a special blade guiding that keeps the blades straight in relation to each other and prevents them from separating or becoming distorted.
