  • Continuous blade slide movement pushes cut material out of the machine
  • Replaceable wear-resistant liners (material hardness 450)
  • Blades mounted on the front of the blade slide and lower edge of the box front wall effortlessly shear all feed materials.


Reduce Costs ... Create value!

A large hopper and fully automatic processing mode allows material to be fed continuously.
  • Gravity-fed material is guided to the shear blades. The stepped compression unit moves horizontally and functions as pusher-stamper combination
  • Automatic operation eliminates need for dedicated machine operator

Horizontal stepped stamper moves scrap down and forward at the same time, compressing the material and holding it during shearing (02). Horizontal shear blade moves forward under the compression ram. Blades mounted on the front of the shear blade and at the lower edge of the box front wall cut the material (03). Continuing movement of the shear blade pushes the material out of the box (04).
