- Business & Finance
According to the company, the WCO30 tools, suitable for wire up to 30mm diameters (suitable for cutting wire rope, guide wire, cables, hoses and umbilicals), are compact and more reliable alternative to larger cuttings tools normally needed for guide wire cutting.
The hydraulically-operated WCO30 tool is corrosion resistant with stainless steel body and Nitrotec coated alloy steel cylinder.
Allspeeds says its WCO30 cutting tool can be used at any water depth, with pressure compensation on the hydraulic supply. Weighing 13kg in water, the high pressure WCO30D uses 700bar maximum input pressure. Its lower pressure version WCO30DLP weighs 17.8kg in water and uses 210 bar maximum input pressure.
