May 2013, Vol. 68 No. 5

Bochum, Germany-based IST GmbH has just named Pipeline Renewal Technologies (PRT) a North American distributor and service center for its Power CUTTER brand of pipe cutting and lateral reinstatement robots.

With the addition of IST to its current lineup, PRT now offers rehab cutters for applications ranging from lateral cutting to lateral reinstatement and mainline grinding and milling.

IST’s flagship product in North America is the Power CUTTER 200 for 8-inch relined and larger pipe. It combines a four-axis cutting arm, 1.9-horsepower air motor, articulated zoom camera, self-propulsion and microprocessor-based control architecture. The comparably equipped Power CUTTER 150 is available for lines as small as 6 inches.
