The Cutting guide Jr is a portable automated cutting solution for work in Ex/Hazardous areas.It is designed to cut through steel and can be mounted on walls and even on the ceiling. The cutting process is controlled by a pneumatic remote operator station where the operator is in control of all functions on the guide.
The guide is built with safety in mind and is built in ANSI316 with antistatic sleeve-guard around the pneumatic hose bundle connecting the Operator station, Water control box and the guide. There is also grounding between the parts.
The cutting guide cuts about 1m of 8mm thick steel in an hour (depends on the steel and disk) and the cutting disk last about 20-30m of cutting (depends on steel type and operator). The guide is delivered in standard length of about 2,2m with a cutting length of about 1,4m. Length and spec can be modified on request.
There is no need for downtime due to vibrations or high noise to the operator and therefore the machine can be operated without downtime. The Guide is delivered in easy to assemble parts and is ready to use in about 30 min by an experienced operator.
Health, Safety & the Environment
Our Cutting Solutions are designed around Health Safety & the Environment (HMS / HSE & OSHA) offering low vibration, low heat and low noise. The fragments produced are large and blunt and will stay all within a few centimeters/inches of your work area. This makes cleanup simple and safe.
Safety Tools Cutting and Weld Removal Disc’s are very durable. With an experienced end user our Disc’s will cut and mill approximately 12 meters in length and 8 to 12mm deep. If a automated system from STA Solutions is used, such as Junior Guide or PipEx, the lifespan of the disc more than doubles. The water from the water control box acts as a lubricant to add life to our discs. It also brings our Cutting Solutions down to a T4 rating. Both our Cutting Disc & Weld Removal Disc can be re-cut up to three times.
