Designed for the safe disposal of Improvised Explosive Devices, the Supracutter is a fully mechanical automatic wire cutter.


Designed specifically for the safe neutralisation of Improvised Explosive Devices, the Supracutter is a fully automatic mechanical wire cutter. This self-contained, non-explosive device can be reused immediately and requires no external power source such as a battery. It can be activated by a pull line or a reliable precision mechanical timer.

The Supracutter is the ideal tool for remotely and safely cutting detonator wires, command wires and detonating cords, facilitating effective IED neutralisation. It has an international protection rating that exceeds the IP68 standard, ensuring reliable performance even under prolonged immersion.

The unit is designed to be easily mounted on a camera tripod to extend the field of operation. The modularity of the system provides several benefits to the operator. Cutting modules can be quickly removed and replaced thanks to an innovative quick-release system.

Depending on the complexity, risks and type of operation, the Supracutter can be equipped with a module with steel blades for cutting electrical wires or a non-conductive module with ceramic blades. Maintenance is minimal, with operations limited to simple blade replacement.

Compact and robust, the Supracutter offers two remote triggering modes that can be selected according to operational requirements: an automatic mode using a programmable mechanical timer, or a manual mode using a pull line.
