WHAT IS HEAVY GAUGE PLATE SHEARING?

In order for metal to be altered into something else, it needs to be fabricated or cut. One popular way to change the shape of sheet metal is shearing, which is when the metal is separated by applying great shearing force to it. This process cuts the metal in straight lines while avoiding dangerous tactics such as burning or melting the metal. It is also a clean cut, separating the metal into two parts with no shredding or chipping of the metal. We can customize metal to work any project, with our professionals making cuts at any angle, sheet thickness, tolerance or sheet finish needed to fit your desired parts.

Our professional technicians can shear sheet metal at any thickness between .005 and .25 inches. Our shearing machines can handle a tolerance of plus-or-minus 0.1 inches (plus-or-minus .005 inches feasible) and our surface finish will have a capability between 250 and 1,000 µin (125-2,000 µin feasible).
