Hydraulic shears, also known as squaring shears, power shears or more commonly in Europe a guillotine, can be a great asset to any shop when you require high-performance metal cutting to help you increase your production efficiency. Hydraulic shears operate by means of a hydraulic pump and cylinders and some form of mechanical advantage. Plainly put, a shear is a machine that separates sheets of metal into blank sizes for further processing. Hydraulic shears work by placing the material needing to be cut on the bed or table of the shear and the material is then slid between the upper and lower blades. When the cutting process begins the material is clamped to the bed of the shear with either a solid hold-down bar or feet to secure it against possible slipping. Then the angled upper beam that holds the moveable blade if forced downward and the material is cut very much the same way a set of scissors cuts a piece of paper.
