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.
就在他收拾行李准备去南非的时候，他收到了家人的一封信，建议他搬到加拿大去。詹姆斯改签了机票，于1953年移居加拿大。当时，他开始为英国电气有限公司(English electric Ltd.)销售电动机、制动器和减速器。后来，他又增加了allspeed Ltd.的变速驱动器产品线，即变速器。1974年，格兰特先生离开了英国电气公司，只销售allspeed产品，主要变量。
到1981年，詹姆斯的儿子罗伯特加入了这个行业，并帮助将Webtool系列液压工具添加到Variators Ltd.的产品列表中。当时Webtool 产品主要销售给采矿业。这一切在1980年末都改变了吗 当人们意识到Webtool 产品更适合海底使用时。从那时起，我们一直与海底行业紧密合作，不断改进工具，以更好地适应我们的客户。

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
