Shears are used to cut sheet metal, aluminum, paper, plastic and even wood. Each machine has capabilities of cutting the thinnest metal to the absolute thickest one can withstand. It usually is the first machine that is used when manufacturing fabricated parts.
There are guillotine shears and swing beam shears. A guillotine shear is the type that has the blade drive in a straight direction going down and up. A swing beam shear uses the power of leverage through a cantilevered ram to increase the tonnage which in turn increases the shearing capacity. There are also two types of shear drive systems. We have hydraulic and mechanical shears. Mechanical machines are powered by a flywheel and the hydraulic machines are powered by cylinders that forces the ram up and down.
If you need to cut stainless steel then you should be searching for a machine that can cut a thickness of about 2x the material thickness you are using. If you are shearing aluminium, the right machine would have to be able to cut through about ½ the amount of material thickness you are working with.
Shears are made up of a main frame, squaring arm, gauging system, blades, a bed, a control, a hold down and accessories/options.
