Pyrotechnic Cord & Wire Cutters
Space rated. And high reliability.
Designed to cut within milliseconds, our pyrotechnic cord and wire cutters can be used to sever single wires or simultaneously sever various sized bundles of electrical wires. Not to mention the ability to cut Kevlar, Vectran and zylon.
These cutters (or guillotines) primarily consist of a body (usually stainless steel) with an eyelet for threading the cord or wire, an end cap or anvil, a piston/cutter blade, shear pin(s) and an electrically fired actuator. The body housing the piston/cutter blade, provides for installation of the cartridge, and attachment of the anvil. The anvil is removable to facilitate removal and installation of either the guillotine or wire bundle. Lugs, for attaching the guillotine to the releasing structure, are an integral part of the guillotine body. Capacity may be increased with minor changes in the housing or actuator. We have a wide range of operating temperatures we can design to along with offering a long storage life. Our cutters are also space rated, environmentally sealed and include an extremely high demonstrated reliability.
