The patented design of our Articulating Diamond Wire Saws increases the efficiency and effectiveness of low-clearance cuts in the subsea cutting world.

The articulated design only requires 2 feet of clearance around casings and the cut is made at the bottom of the saw, so there is no need to make additional space and can minimize dredge requirements.
