What Are Cutters Used For?
Cutter cartridges are suitable for numerous military, commercial and aviation applications. They are primarily used to set off safety features in commercial aircraft during onboard emergencies, but they are also ideal for bomb deployment, flare ejection and opening pressure valves.
Cutters, piston pushers and pullers facilitate the release of all of the following mechanisms:
- Evacuation slides
Do Cutter Cartridges Need to Be Replaced?
You should replace or inspect your cutter cartridges as often as you maintain the systems they’re part of, whether you use a parachute ejection system or an evacuation slide deployment device. Like most equipment, your maintenance intervals should reflect several factors, including:
- How often you use your equipment.
- Whether it becomes damaged.
- If you notice improper function.
Since choosing when to replace your cartridge can be complex, we recommend asking the experts. Reach out to AETC for more information about when to replace your extraction parachute squibs.
