If you work in tough conditions, Webtool’s HCV cable cutters are designed for you. Choose Webtool™ for umbilical and power cables as well as hydraulic lines. HCV cutters feature hydraulically-powered anvil pins that allow remote actuation. Using the manipulator arm, ROV operators can capture and sever the cable or wire rope with great accuracy.


The rope is held in place by closing the anvil pin, followed by a hardened steel guillotine blade driven through the rope. The blade is then returned, and the anvil pin retracted for the next cut. Custom sizes and solutions are available.
