Supralab are cutting shaped charges designed to cut elongated steel elements such as cables, rods or tubes with circular, square or flat cross-sections.


The Supralab design is achieved by using two linear shaped charges arranged in a V. This makes it possible to cut steel bars of any diameter between two limits, depending on the Supralab model used, without any adjustment or adaptation of the system.

This design also minimises the amount of explosive required, which is approximately half that of a conventional shape for the same cutting performance.

The charge is compact, light, discreet, easy to manipulate and can be gripped with one hand. The Supralab is capable of automatically locking onto bars while remaining in a stable position. It can be unlocked by a simple operator action.

The charge can be used under water to a depth of 30m.

The Supralab range consists of 4 models covering a wide cutting capacity up to 100mm in S275 steel.
