Cable cutters

From the battery-powered model for mobile use to the permanently mounted submarine cable system, we offer the optimum cutting tool for every application. Whether in shipbuilding, wire and cable production or metal recycling, companies all over the world use the powerful and robust cable shears from PETIG.

Being able cutting diameter of 350mm and a cutting force of 675 kN, the hydraulic cable shears HKS9-2 is unbeatable when it comes to the separation of wires and cables with large diameters. The HKS 9-2 is the largest hydraulic cable in our portfolio and we also offer a whole range of other shears in different performance classes which are designed for mobile operation by one operator. In addition to this, we also offer integration into the production systems of our customers for the cutting systems.

Quality of the knives that makes the difference:

Special secret of the success of PETIG cable shears is the use of top quality knives. The right choice of material and developed manufacturing methods not only increases the life cycle but also allows the users to cut even heavily armored cables with ease.

* Depending on the hydraulic unit used.

The cutting speed often plays an important role. Hydraulic power units with a higher delivery volume can increase the cutting speed.

Information about the various hydraulic units can be found here.

PETIG hydraulic cable cutter persuade users by the robust setup and reliability- even under permanent workload at 24 / 7 usage with heavy load.
The straight forward design of the cutters secures consistency and long lasting availability.

Functionality and ergonomics are important aspects:

Large, partially rotatable handles, safe Deadman switches and practical suspension eyes enable safe and fatigue-free working with PETIG’s cable shears. The operating and safety features of the cable shears allows optimal handling. Inspite of the high forces required to cut cables with large-cross section, the operator can work sensitively with our cable shears.

Hydraulic pumps ensure correspondingly high performance

For its hydraulic cable shears, we offer special high-performance hydraulic pumps that are perfectly matched to the operation of our tools. The pumps are extremely robust, low-maintenance and designed for demanding continuous use.

Cable shears from PETIG - quality made in Germany

Each cable cutter undergoes extensive quality control after production, including extensive testing. The high demands of hydraulic cable shears in tough industrial applications make uncompromising demands on every single component. These tests ensure that only the perfect tools leave our plant in. Grevenbroich.
Whether you process armored submarine cable or high voltage cable: PETIG cutters are the right choice for your applications.

Beside the cable and wire industry you will find PETIG hydraulic cutters in many different application areas: Our mobile ACCUCUT are designed for flexible handling even at construction areas e.g. for cutting reinforcement steel mesh or at waste yards. The ergonomic design with its perfect balance point and the solid hand hold secure safe processing with our cutter tools.
