100B series mechanical shear Efficient performance makes this 190-strokes-per-minute model the ideal choice for any operation within the stated capacity. In every-day use or cut-to-length lines of lighter materials,these shears offer the versatility of the solenoid operated clutch and the quality construction found in every FAMCO power shear. B Series shears feature an anti-friction clutch and brake. The Orttech pneumatic clutch and brake are trouble-free units, self-compensating for wear. This 360 degree engagement clutch provides instantaneous, accurate shear operation assuring the consistent repetition essential to effective cut-to-length lines and feed operations of all kinds.Available in 18GA; 16GA; and 14GA. capacities, in cutting widths from 24″ to 72″.

Special Shears

If your problem is a special one-shearing a material that you now feel must be cut by other means, fitting a shearing operation to a new process, developing a shear specifically designed to cut a new material-FAMCO is eager to offer a solution. FAMCO engineers have the experience and know how to design and produce a shear that will do an efficient job for you, whether the answer lies in a minor revision of an existing model or involves a whole new concept of shearing. Your problem may be solved by a special blade opening, crosshead slope or stroke. It may require a special speed, a different holddown device, or a new electrical circuit. Perhaps a special grinding of blades-even special corrugated blades-will make your operation more efficient and profitable. Whatever your question, consult the acknowledged leader in the field of special shears, and let FAMCO advise you.
