Metal shearing explained
What is metal shearing? Well, the answer is pretty simple: a metal shearing machine cuts through pieces of sheet metal, plate, aluminum or stainless steel. Metal shearing allows us to cut these typically unwieldy materials into exact dimensions, so that they can be used for different manufacturing projects.
So, how do we cut such strong metals? A shearing machine is very forceful—in fact, it applies enough concentrated force to cut through these tough materials. This is called a “shearing force,” and it’s the mechanism by which most metal shearing is performed.
Benefits of metal shearing
Okay, now you know how metal shearing generally works. So why should you consider using it for your project? Here are some of the most common benefits of metal shearing.
First, it allows us to cut very straight lines through flat sheet stock. It also allows for a cleaner cut than other methods of cutting through metal.
Metal shearing will produce cleaner edges than more traditional torch metal cutting. And because it doesn’t actually melt the material, there won’t be any burnt edges or chips. It is also more effective on softer metal forms.
There is very little loss of material with metal shearing, meaning that we waste very little and have a more sustainable business model. And because it is so efficient, we can do very high-volume work in a relatively short amount of time.
Finally, metal shearing allows us to cut very small lengths of metal, meaning we don’t need to use as much force for every project. This is another aspect of metal shearing that makes it very efficient.
So, to sum things up, metal shearing is more efficient than other forms of metal cutting. It also is less messy, and produces more exact dimensions and cleaner edges. And it can be used on a wide range of projects and metal types, because it’s gentler than traditional torch metal cutting.
