The LiMAR® Rotary Cutter is designed to drop, cut and clamp onto the wireline when a toolstring becomes inadvertently stuck down hole.

The LiMAR® Rotary Cutter is assembled onto the wire above the closed rams of the wireline valve and can be used to cut and clamp onto multiple line sizes by selecting the correct tapered wedge to match the wireline to be recovered.
The LiMAR® Drop Bar can be deployed in the same fashion to impact against the Rotary Cutter to activate the cutting mechanism. Slip-Over Fluted Centralisers can also be used in conjunction with the LiMAR® Rotary Cutter and Drop Bar for deployment in larger ID well bores.
