The bridge structure was designed in a lightweight and modular way, so that weight is saved and the system can be adapted to components of different sizes. The bridge saw combines several cutting technologies (horizontal and vertical) and travels one-dimensionally on a rail system above the parts to be cut, such as reactor internals. In addition, the system can be equipped with a 360° rotary table so that the cutting process can be performed from any angle. Mechanical dismantling takes place under or above water. The BRAUN bridge saw is used as a post-cutting station e.g. in the German nuclear power plant Mülheim-Kärlich.
Advantages: variety of dismantling options under or above water, modular design, lightweight construction, good decontamination capability, purely mechanical dismantling.
