Utility tools: Greenlee Textron Inc., a Textron Inc. company, offers the C3 Auto Whip clad cable cutting machine. This automated solution for notching and cutting AC (BX), MC Cable and FMC increases worker safety and productivity.
It is cited to be the first machine capable of notching and cutting AC (BX), MC Cable and FMC with a solution that is fully automated after easily programming the touchscreen interface. In addition, the C3 Auto Whip is cited to be significantly safer than any current cable-cutting machine because the cutting saws on the C3 Auto Whip are fully enclosed by the machine’s housing, which protects workers from injury.
The C3 Auto Whip clad cable cutting machine features a touch screen interface, which allows the operator to input the correct cable configuration so the machine is aware of the cable size, type and desired whip length. Also featured is a USB input that allows custom whip configurations to be uploaded into the machine. The operator then pushes a button to start the C3 Auto Whip machine, allowing the freedom to walk away and complete additional tasks. The C3 Auto Whip machine automatically cuts the cable and exports those whips from the opposite end of the machine.
