Shearing is a cutting force applied perpendicular to material causing the material to yield and break. Shearing is a process for cutting sheet metal to size out of a larger stock. Shears are used as the preliminary step in preparing stock for stamping processes, or smaller blanks for CNC presses.
Custom Precision Technologies offers metal shearing services to our customers requiring this metal-fabricating service. Our sheet metal shear includes programmable back gauging to insure precision and accuracy.
CPT operates a metal shear with a capacity of:
Gauge: Up to 0.25” (1/4”)
Length: Up to 20’ (longer when on a coil)
Width: Up to 10’
Tolerance: +/-.015 (tighter tolerances can be offered on as quoted basis)
Note: If your material exceeds the capacities of our shear, CPT can waterjet cut it.
