Decomissioning and Bespoke cutters

Special purpose cutters built for industry

JAG SP Series Decommissioning and Bespoke cutters

JAG have a rich history of designing, manufacturing and supplying bespoke cutting devices that are suitable for many applications ranging from the factory floor to the deep depths of the ocean floor.

With over 30 years industry experience we have developed numerous Bespoke hydraulic cutting devices with differing specifications relating to a number of industry requirements. Utilising this experience we understand that trying to fit a square peg into a round hole is not going to be the best solution when precision is required,  which is why our design team can work with you to plan, design and built a fully Bespoke hydraulic cutting device that meets your exacting requirements and is always fit for purpose

JAG SP Series special purpose hydraulic cutters are uniquely designed and individually manufactured to meet specific client requirements.

These special purpose cutters can incorporate the following special features:

  • Cylinder options – Single or double acting with specialised port configurations and high tonnage options for low supply pressure hydraulic system applications.
  • Protection options – To suit the operating environment, an epoxy paint finish for radioactive, offshore open air applications and a nickel plate finish for offshore sub-sea applications.
  • Operational options – Manual, remote or robotic.
  • Sealing options – To suit the operating environment, HPU seals for applications with water based hydraulic fluids where risk of fire is prohibited and FPM / FKM seals for high temperature applications.

JAG SP Series special purpose hydraulic cutters are designed with a built in 4:1 safety factor and a maximum working pressure of 10,000 PSI. They are manufactured, inspected and tested in accordance with the relevant requirements of the recognised technical standards: EN -ISO – Hydraulic fluid power for safety requirements of systems / components. EN – ISO – Safety of machinery for design/risk assessment/risk reduction and are certified accordingly. They conform with the relevant essential health and safety requirements as laid down in the machinery directive, pressure equipmet directive and are CE marked accordingly.

These cutters have previously been specified with the following special equipment options:

  • Hydraulically operating jaws and hatches
  • Roller guide systems
  • Mobile workstations
  • Mounting brackets
  • Vertical / horizontal mounting frames
  • Guarding systems
  • Cable / Wire rope clamp assemblies

Precision, controlled and safe material cutting

JAG Hydraulic Cutting Equipment has been designed and manufactured to excel in Safety, Quality, Durability and Ease of use to ensure total customer satisfaction.

JAG is the UK’s leading manufactured hydraulic cutting equipment brand and has increased operator safety when working in hazardous environments by using enclosed moving parts and creating zero emissions when cutting. It has also increased productivity by using a fast non-jamming guillotine cutting action and when connected to a high pressure hydraulic system will give the ultimate cutting performance.

JAG Hydraulic Cutting Equipment has been specifically engineered to meet rigorous requirements, cut the toughest materials in intense production applications.

We supply equipment to cut the following materials:
  • High Tensile Wire Rope/ ARMOURED POWER CABLE
  • Casing String/ POWER CABLE/ Wire
  • High Tensile Steel Chain/ STRUCTUAL SECTIONS
  • SUCKER RODS/ Hose Lines
  • Fibre Rope/ TELECOM CABLE

Plus, a broad range of associate materials which are also within the equipment’s cutting capacities.

JAG Industries has the knowledge, expertise, years of experience and an ever expanding range of hydraulic cutting equipment capabilities which makes us confident we can supply and meet with your application requirements.
