Fusioncutter schematics

The fusioncutter was a handheld industrial cutting torch found throughout the galaxy. Some of the more popular models were the SoroSuub F-187 and the Jeron fusion cutter.

The common fusioncutter consisted of a handgrip and a long emitter, producing a high-energy plasma beam. This beam could slice through dense metals, duraplast, and other reinforced materials. The cutting beam was often adjustable, allowing the user to decrease the beam for fine, precise work, or to generate a wide-dispersion laser.

A fusioncutter's beam could be dangerous if not used correctly, though its limited range ensured the tool could not be effectively used as a weapon. However, fusioncutters were often carried into battle, notably by engineers during the Galactic Civil War and the preceding Clone Wars. These specialized engineers used fusioncutters to repair vehicles, turrets, medical droids and supply droids on the battlefront.

R2-D2 had a fusioncutter and used it on several occasions.
