We have built, based on the end customer’s drawings, two shears for an important steel mill with final destination in Oman.
These are two shears: one inlet, and one outlet for aluminium cutting for hot rolling mill line.
The inlet shear, placed in the plant before the rolling mill stand, is used to square off the coil edge cut in the correct way for the subsequent threading operation. Also known as an “emergency shear”, it cuts the ends of the band so that the coil does not get stuck in the first rolling mill stand, avoiding to stop the plant.
The output shear, placed in the plant after the rolling mill stand, is rotary with the function of establishing the lengths of the coil, dividing the end of the previous reel from the head of the next reel and cutting some pieces of the tape to allow it to insert in the winding reel.
Aluminium cutting shears technical data:
- Thickness = up to 19 mm at a maximum temperature of 400 degrees of the sheet metal;
- Sheet metal width = up to 2,000 mm;
- Input shear weight = 30,000 Kg.
- Rotary shear weight = 25,000 kg.
