Enerpac’s electrically powered EWCE wire rope and cable cutters are designed to reduce hazards and increase efficiency when cutting heavy-duty material. The 25 kg guillotine-style cutters offer 380 kN (42.7 tonnes) force to slice through rope up to 42 mm in diameter and cable up to 55 mm in diameter. The product provides an alternative to cutting material with angle grinders, gas saws or by holding it in place, amidst a shower of sparks or broken blades.
The cutters can handle materials up to HR48 hardness and are suitable for rigorous use on sites such as mining, electrical, construction and infrastructure. The 230 V tools complement the company’s range of hydraulic cutter heads, including WHC, WMC, WHR and STC types in capacities from 3–20 tonnes and cutting capacities of 13–101 mm.
The cutters offer increased safety and portability, facilitated by the tool’s opening head. The cutters also enable easy and secure set-up and operation, with wire rope or cable held in place by the blades during the cutting process, offering greater safety than cut-off wheels. A controlled cutting process increases productivity and offers quick set-up, with double-acting cylinder and directional control to improve handling and reduce jamming. The blades are also durable, designed to outlast grinder or saw blades and avoid hazards from disintegrating rotating equipment.
The EWCE electric wire rope and cable cutters complement the company’s comprehensive ranges of lifting cylinders, pumps, pullers, presses, control technologies and professional bolting technologies widely used throughout Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
