Title: Metal Shear Cutting Tool

Uses of Metal Shear Cutting Tool
A metal shear is a precision tool which has a
high-carbon steel or chromium blade, and is used
to cutting a metals like aluminum, copper, brass
or light-gauge steel or even plastic. The various
types of shears available are alligator shear,
guillotine, power shear, throatless shear and Tin
The Alligator shear is more popularly known as a
lever shear. It is a metal-cutting shear with a
hinged jaw. It is usually powered by a flywheel
or hydraulic cylinder. The jaw size used can
range from 4 to 36 inches long. These are used to
cut steel members such as pipe, angle, etc.
The alligator shears are used for cutting long
metal stock or to prepare scrap for shredding.
Guillotine is also called squaring shear or power
shear. It may be powered by foot or mechanical
energy. It first clamps the material with a ram
and then the two blades make contact with each
other to shear the material.
The moving blade comes down to the fixed blade
and shears the material. The technique used for
larger shears is different, with the moving blade
set on an angle. The other parts of the equipment
include a shear table, work-holding device, upper
and lower blades and a gauging device.
The metal to be sheared is kept on the shear
table and the work-holding device keeps it from
moving. The gauging device ensures the right
place of cut. Power shears are powered
electrically and are hand-held devices. They are
used to cut straight lines or very large curves.
Throatless shear can be used to cut complex
straight and curved cuts in sheet metal, because
the metal can be moved around the cutting blade.
Tin snips are hand tools that can cut sheet metal
and are available in two variants.
The tinner's snips are similar to the common
scissors and compound action snips use a compound
leverage handle system. The tinner snips have
long handles and short blades and have extra wide
The straight pattern tin snips can be used for
straight cuts and the duck-bill pattern is used
for cutting curves and circles or other required
shapes. Other variants available include
hawk-bills snips, circle pattern etc. Compound
action snips can handle aluminum up to 18 gauges
or mild steel up to 24 gauges.
They can be used for straight cutting, left
cutting and right cutting. The blades are
serrated to maintain the friction and prevent the
slipping of the metal. There are many other
variants of shears. These may be available in the
market according to the requirement of the shapes
to be cut and the metal used.
Some of the shears are usually designed for
cutting soft metals, although occasional use on
steel is possible. Signvec Technology was
established in 1997 and has to-date made a name
for ourselves in the engraving and signcraft
