nuclear decommissioning Sellafield tool in handling frame

Webtool guillotine croppers offer several advantages over traditional ‘pincer’ or ‘parrot beak’ type croppers as they are capable of cutting through much larger cross-sections and are not prone to jamming, offering significant time savings.

Webtool guillotine croppers use a cold cutting process. The hydraulically powered tool comprises of a jaw containing a blade and an anvil. Operation is straightforward – position the metal section in the jaw, and activate the tool.

Our blades are not given to deflection or breakage and once the material is positioned in the cropper it cannot slip out as a result of the cropping action. A further advantage is our unique optional remote anvil and blade changing.

Unlike other cutting methods where there is a risk of the item flexing during cutting and either trapping or snapping the blade, closing the guillotine’s anvil locks the component to be cut in position, ensuring the cut is completed successfully every time.
