Any clever and handy persons out there who have made tooling to replace the claw yet? Like line-cutter or any other smart and handy add-ons?
Not really tooling but this might give some ideas… https://discuss.bluerobotics.com/t/attaching-a-carabiner-to-a-rope/4092
We have been working on a sediment sampler scoop add on that is easily changed over.
Once it’s complete ill upload some photos.
i have the plan, but havent done anything yet, looks like we can copy the “originals” with this… make the piston drive the cutter, so its a mecanical thing. …but i had oxyarc in my mind the other day for cutting, can cut whtever we want in the end there, one string is enough for a lot of steel …but you need the oxy to…?..might go with a ponybottle… a thought towards the problem that comes …the way of ROV…
…but the coolest way…a mini grinder/cutter …but also…diamond wire… roll and cut?..truster motor can do it?
OXY ARC needs quite some O2, a pony bottle wont bring you far. Cutting a wire or a chain may be feasible but I doubt you will be able to perform a nice cut of any length.
a Pony will bring you One string… as you have the abillity with a Bluerov2, l´ve been using oxyarc so i know the amount of oxy, the amount of cutting is beyond every battery you must use of Any cutting in difference of One string of Magnesium, it will cut about a 10 cm chain(if you can use it)… i know i have done it. if you need a bigger bottle or surfaced oxy?..so what?..can cut Everything exept Wood! ;)…easy to implement…to start it, use battery?.. simple;)…And no fingers are gone after work
…cutting is cutting…how it looks?..who cares?..haven gotten any complains yet after +10 yrs in the in the industry, get i Loose!..thats the task. if you need a Good looking cut…call DO( in Hgs.) ill do it
Have you tried cutting with oxyarc attached to an ROV? Even though I love the idea I am bit skeptic as you will loose the “feeling” I have been doing my share of oxyarc too after being a diver for 30years Do you work for DO ?
Nope havent tryed cutting with a ROV. but i see that it shuldnt be a biig problem… practice, but when you have it?.. se my point? ( but in my mindttravel in this idea… diamond cutter… thats easy… just need a motor and the wire going around?..can curt allmost anything? …but i dont see the big issue by cutting with oxy, just ned a manip to control your angles;) been in most but, DOF,Do, Oceaneering is primary, and IMC in Bergen…( the setup at Helge Ingstad is me who made)… got my Traninee time at Geoconsult …i built Geomasters windows on the bridge when i was 13 ;)( so iva been in the industry for a while;) …and IKM, no comment…spyr.
