Evolution Ceramic Blades
The Evolution Ceramic Blades are compatible with all common “box cutter or Stanley” utility knives . The blades are super sharp and long lasting. These blades will cut Kevlar, Aramid, fibre optic cable and other difficult to cut materials.
The blades are non-conductive and are ideal for use in Counter IED Operations, every operator should have theses blades in their tool box.
Unlike current in-service systems it does not require access to the circumference of the device. Instead it utilises the Monica vacuum system, therefore requiring only a portion of the munition to be visible (300x400mm). This reduces the need for digging and shoring operations, meaning less disruption to civilian or military operations.
A hydraulic or pneumatic motor is used to power an annular (hollow) cutter to allow the wall of a munition to be breached so that the munition fill can be accessed. Alternatively a cutter may be used to trepan a hole around a fuze pocket allowing it to be removed intact from the munition body.
