Shearing is the process of cutting sheet and plate without producing chips or using burning or melting methods. Typically speaking, the blades are straight with one of them fixed and the other moving. At Tell Steel we have a few mechanical guillotine style shears. They work by first clamping the material with a ram. A shearing blade then comes down across the fixed blade to cut the material. For thicker metals the blade is “rocked” or set at an angle to cut the material from one side to the other.
