for profiled contact wires

This two speed lightweight and compact, hydraulic tool is ideal for cutting profiled contact wires on electrified traction systems. Having the benefit of spring loaded handles, the dies can be advanced using only one hand.


For ease of operation and comfort of the operator, the tool head can be rotated through 180 degrees.


The built-in safety valve will by-pass the oil supply when the maximum pressure is reached, while the pressure release system can easily be operated at any stage of the compression.


Hydraulic HT-TFC tool with interchangeable dies to perform a perfectly perpendicular cut without deformation of the wire shape.


Contact wire cut with a traditional cutter

Contact wire cut with the HT-TFC hydraulic tool





















Hydraulic cutting tool for cutting profiled contact wires and copper and aluminium ropes. Interchangeables dies cut perpendicularly and without deformation to optimise joint installation.
The use of this head simplifies the cutting operation and reduces the time needed to prepare the joint.


Simple 3 stage operation


Insert the die set into the head

Position the conductor inside the die set so that the blade lines up with the desired cutting point; close the die set by moving the locking handle towards the tool body, until automatically “locked” in position and securely clamping the wire/conductor.
Operate the pump to advance the blade to the conductor; the blade progressively advances until the conductor is completely cut in a clean and precise manner without deforming the conductor itself.



Supplied in a sturdy plastic case VAL P17 suitable for storage of the tool and 4 sets of dies.
