What Is Metal Shearing?

A metal shearing machine is used for cutting sheet metal, plate, aluminum and stainless steel to size. This provides a cleaner cut and straighter edge then traditional torch cutting. The metal to be cut is held in place with hold-downs. The cuts are positioned by a squaring arm with scale on it or with a back gauge. Other angles are possible with an angle gauge. On some sheet metal shears and most plate shears, the blade gap is adjustable for different metal thicknesses.

Our machine’s maximum sizes to cut are listed below

– Steel – 1/4″ Thickness x 10′ Long
– Aluminum – 3/8″ Thickness x 10′ Long
– Stainless – 11 Gauge x 10′ Long
