- Reduce digging and shoring operations
- Faster, smoother cutting
The MATE trepanning systems offers EOD teams are more flexible approach for coring munitions.
Unlike current in-service systems it does not require access to the circumference of the device.
Instead it utilises the Monica vacuum system, therefore requiring only a portion of the munition to be visible (300x400mm). This reduces the need for digging and shoring operations, meaning less disruption to civilian or military operations.
Powered by either hydraulic or pneumatic motor it utilises the same cutting technology as the Monica system. The larger cutter will cut up to 100mm in diameter and to depths of up to 50mm, quickly and smoothly. The use of advanced cutters offers a much enhanced performance over conventional trepanning systems. MATE can be operatedup to a distance over 1000m.
