, also known as squaring shears, alligator shears, bench shears, throatless 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. Similar to the press brakes, hydraulic shears operate by means of a hydraulic pump and cylinders and some form of mechanical advantage. Plainly put, the hydraulic shearing process consists of 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 shears cutting process begins the material is clamped to the bed of the shear with either a solid hold-down bar or feet which presses it against possible slipping, making it secure. Then the angled upper beam that holds the moveable shears blade if forced downward and the material is cut very much the same way a set of scissors cuts a piece of paper.
