Pyrotechnic Bolt & Rod Cutters
The Bolt Cutter (or Rod Cutter) consists of an initiator, a chisel shaped cutter blade, a blade positioning shear pin and an anvil in a cylindrical housing. The bolt to be cut fits through a clearance hole in the housing, placing it against the anvil. When the initiator functions, the blade is accelerated and impacts the bolt, forcing it to cut through against the anvil. This cutting process completely fractures the high strength steel bolt or rod.
