Explosive device neutralisation systems (IED/EOD)

MobiCut®, a suitable cutting system for the neutralisation of explosive devices

Abrasive waterjet cutting is an excellent way to neutralise explosive devices. Because it is a cold cutting method, it is risk-free for the explosive. The cutting operation separates the sensitive part from the rest of the device, which is generally less sensitive, and can also be used to deconfine the explosive.

With MobiCut®, HYDROPROCESS® offers a mobile cutting device that can operate in situ, is easy to use, and does not require you to move the explosive device. Once the cutting system is installed, the cutting operation is controlled remotely from a secure location without risk to bomb disposal expert.

Our machines are mainly used for civil and military security.
