Point 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.

Hydraulic System

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 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. All valves are tagged with identification and pressure settings to simplify servicing.

Machine Features

Control Panel
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. The Inching mode allows the operator to gradually move the top beam down to check the work prior to taking the cut or to facilitate checking knife clearance when this may become necessary. This function can also be used to maintain hold down pressure after taking a cut to allow the operator to support the material on the table and prevent it from falling after the hold down's have released.


Knife Clearance Adjustment
A 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.

Being mounted 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.

Stroke Length Adjustment
By means of a simple thumb screw the stroke length may be adjusted to reduce cycle time and increase productivity on shorter work by as much as
an additional 80%.

Front Operated Power Back Gauge System

This illustration shows the precision gear drives which are fully sealed and
pre-lubricated. The drive train runs from a 1 HP motor coupled to the manual fine adjustment hand-wheel and this shaft in turn drives the self locking reduction gearbox. On both output shafts of this gearbox are two indexing couplings which provide a simple and convenient means of adjustment to compensate for any back gauge errors. From these couplings the drive train runs through two precision gearboxes which rotate the rolled acme shafts.

Note - A 36" power back gauge is standard on the SO Series
