Developed during CERN’s Long Shutdown 1, this orbital cutting machine has been designed to cut a broad range of pipes of different diameters and materials located in places which are particularly difficult to access. Once mounted on a pipe, the cutter operates autonomously without manual assistance, making it suitable to cut pipes which present health hazards, such as radioactively contaminated pipes.
