These shears were designed to cut plate or flat bar to a desired length. The shearing is done with single cut blades that produce no slugs. The upper blade and cylinder are designed with a 2° slope. The upper blade also contains a ½ per foot rake. These two factors ensure a clean cut while increasing blade life. The lower cutting die blade is adjustable to allow proper blade clearance. These shears are also modular in design to allow incorporation into CNC plate lines if needed.
