SOLE DISTRIBUTOR TO NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA FOR WEBTOOL
OUR TRADITION OF INNOVATION
main_about1Variators Ltd. is family owned and operated and has been in business since 1973. It was started by James Grant who was born and grew up in England. James was working for Rowntrees confectioneries in the engineering dept. in the 1920’s. He later attended University in Leeds for electrical engineering. In the 1950’s James made plans to move abroad with his young family to South Africa.
As fate would have it, just as he was packing for South Africa, he received a letter from a family member suggesting he move to Canada instead. James changed his ticket, and moved to Canada in 1953. He started selling electric motors, brakes, and gear reducers for English Electric Ltd. at the time. He later added the Allspeeds Ltd. product line of Variable Speed Drives, called Variators. In 1974 Mr. Grant separated from the English Electric Corporation and was only selling Allspeeds products, primary Variators.
main_about2By 1981 James’s son Robert had joined the business and helped add the Webtool line of hydraulic tools to Variators Ltd. list of products. At the time Webtool products were mostly being sold to the mining industry. That all changed in the late 1980 s when it was realized the Webtool products were better suited for Subsea use. Since then we have been working closely with the Subsea industry to constantly evolve and improve the tools to better suit our customers.
WEBTOOL – THE MOST DURABLE TOOLS IN THE INDUSTRY
Cutting or lifting large diameter wire rope and cable in the most hostile environments, under the toughest of conditions and the most demanding of circumstances requires something special.
Allspeeds first developed the Webtool underwater cutting tools over 30 years ago, now the Webtool division specialise in engineering and manufacturing powerful hydraulic cutting, gripping and lifting tools for wire ropes, cables, umbilicals and fibre ropes. Along with the standard Webtool range, Allspeeds design bespoke specialist subsea tools to meet the needs of users who demand high quality and total reliability.
Our Webtool range is also been adapted to meet the requirements on the Nuclear industry, the Webtool Nuclear range can provide bespoke solutions for nuclear decommissioning and other nuclear projects.
The full Webtool range is suitable for use subsea at depths of 6000m.
就在他收拾行李準備去南非的時候，他收到了家人的一封信，建議他搬到加拿大去。詹姆斯改簽了機票，于1953年移居加拿大。當時，他開始為英國電氣有限公司(English electric Ltd.)銷售電動機、制動器和減速器。后來，他又增加了allspeed Ltd.的變速驅動器產品線，即變速器。1974年，格蘭特先生離開了英國電氣公司，只銷售allspeed產品，主要變量。
到1981年，詹姆斯的兒子羅伯特加入了這個行業，并幫助將Webtool系列液壓工具添加到Variators Ltd.的產品列表中。當時Webtool 產品主要銷售給采礦業。這一切在1980年末都改變了嗎 當人們意識到Webtool 產品更適合海底使用時。從那時起，我們一直與海底行業緊密合作，不斷改進工具，以更好地適應我們的客戶。

Webtool Cable Cutters
If you work in tough conditions, Webtool’s HCV cable cutters are designed for you. Choose Webtool for umbilical and power cables as well as hydraulic lines. HCV cutters feature hydraulically-powered anvil pins that allow remote actuation. Using the manipulator arm, ROV operators can capture and sever the cable or wire rope with great accuracy.
The rope is held in place by closing the anvil pin, followed by a hardened steel guillotine blade driven through the rope. The blade is then returned, and the anvil pin retracted for the next cut. Custom sizes and solutions are available.
Designed for cutting cables in demanding subsea conditions
Electrical power cable, umbilical cable and hydraulic line usage
Also effective on armored telecom and power cables
如果您在艱苦的條件下工作，Webtool的HCV電纜刀是專為您設計的。選擇Webtool 作為臍帶和電力電纜以及液壓管路。HCV 刀具的特點是液壓驅動砧銷，允許遠程執行機構。使用機械手，ROV作業人員可以準確地捕獲和切斷電纜或鋼絲繩。
