Hydraulic Shearing Machine
All hydraulic shearing machine uses the same technique in cutting where there are a fixed upper blade, a lower blade, and an adjustable clearance separating the two. When a force is applied on the upper blade it forces the lower blade to cut and separate the metal into two. With shear machining, the tool’s cutting edge removes the metal from the plate. While this happens, maximum pressure is applied. The tool, however, only touches the metal one time.
