These metal processing experts are equipped to fabricate nearly any type of metal you need, and here, they’ll give you a closer look at their shearing process:

  • Tools: The tools used during the metal shearing process are relatively simple, although the shearing machine’s design allows it to be extremely accurate. Two blades are used when shearing metal: an upper blade and a lower blade, each precisely measured to create a desired offset or thickness.
  • metal processingProcess: During the shearing process, the desired metal is mounted by being placed between the upper and lower shearing blades of the machine and then cut according to the specified measurements. Since the shearing blades can be easily moved, metal processing professionals can shear metal of virtually any size.
  • Benefits: Shearing allows metal processing companies to manufacture many different types of metals that need to be cut into unique sizes. Custom-sized metals such as aluminum, brass, bronze, and stainless steel are among the most commonly used during the shearing process.
