The process of shearing involves the use of straight cutting blades of sheet metal, plates or metal rods, the advantage of shearing is the ability to cut stock without the formation of chips or the use of burning or melting. Whitney hydraulic shears work by initially clamping the material with a ram, then a moving blade comes down across a fixed blade to shear the material cleanly. The moving blade may also be adjusted to create a shear angle or rake angle. Piranha Hydraulic Shear's are one of the industry's most accurate. They are easy to operate and offer precise shearing, long life and dependability. The most cost-effective method for metal cut-off. No burrs or distortion. No clamping of material required. No secondary operations needed.
