of Operation Guarding
The machine must not be operated without point of operation guarding.
It is the responsibility of the user to insure the machine is operated
safely and has appropriate guards for the type of work being performed.
The manufacturer can not satisfy the guarding requirements for the
many and varied applications these machines can perform. The manufacturer
will assist the purchaser with his selection of guarding and will
offer factory installation of the guarding selected by the purchaser.
Swing Beam Principal
The top beam of this type of machine is located by two precision
self aligning spherical bearings. this design concept eliminates
the need for slides and guides and is known as the "swing beam"
principal. The steel weldment is a fully enclosed "boxed"
section which becomes an extremely rigid member supporting the top
After many years
of experience with the "swing beam" we have developed
the geometry of this design with many superior features.
SH-2000 can cut a 2" strip of 1/4" plate
with no distortion.
The entire hydraulic system is to JIC standards and makes maximum
use of flared fittings, installed with the ultimate in simplicity
and accessibility to servicing the circuit components. The electric
motor, hydraulic pump, valves and piping are mounted as a self-contained
module in the power unit and may be swiftly and easily replaced
with an exchange unit to simplify reconditioning or service work
in the distant future. The hydraulic oil tank is designed for operation
on 100% duty cycle, with sufficient oil capacity to dissipate any
significant temperature rise above normal operating levels.
The control panel features a lockable mode selector to provide "Off",
"Inching" and "Single Cycle" functions. In the
Off position the machine is completely inactive.
two-point knife clearance adjustment is provided as standard equipment.
However, because of the basic design and structural rigidity of
these shears, virtually any thickness of stock can be cut - to the
maximum capacity - without adjusting knife clearance.
on eccentric pins or cams, the bearings serve as a simple knife
clearance adjustment. These two bearings are the only two critical
wearing points in the entire machine design. On larger capacity
shears where frequent changes in knife clearance are necessary,
clearances can be altered swiftly and accurately to graduations
shown on a knife clearance indicator.
The stroke length may be adjusted
to reduce cycle time and increase productivity on shorter work by
as much as an additional 80%.
CNC Back Gauge System
- SH-2000 and
SH-3000 Back Gauge Range = 36" (Standard)
- SH-4000 and
SH-6000 Back Gauge Range = 48" (Standard)
- SH-8000 Back
Gauge Range = 48" (Standard)
of Table Styles
machined flat table with hand slots. (Type 1)
table plates, adjustable height. (Type 2)
ball transfers and ground plate. (Type 3)
The frame and all attachments
are fabricated from high-quality steel to produce a virtually indestructible
assembly. Extreme strength and rigidity are designed into the frame.
The table is a fully-enclosed box section welded between two high
strength side frames.
& Gears designed into the machine make maximum use of proven
materials which are known to ensure long life with minimum lubrication.
Most applications have no need for any lubrication and almost all
the bearings are self aligning type.
system is the ultimate in simplicity, using only one pump,
two control valves and a pressure control valve. Overload protection
during factory testing procedures and eliminates the possibility
of breakage caused by inadvertent misuse. Balanced hydraulic system eliminates
torsion in frame.
system has a 24 volt control module separate from the 230/460 volt
motor starter circuit. Both circuits have quick change components
and also can be simply replaced as complete exchange modules.
