Shearing is the process of cutting metals using shear force. The process is popular today as it is quick, efficient, and cost-effective. It cuts large metal sheets into smaller pieces.
The shearing process involves moving a sheet of metal in between two shear blades. The sheet is clamped by “hold downs” on a shear table to hold the material from moving while the upper shear blade passes through the sheet. A squaring arm helps keep the material positioned for the cut. If you’re looking for metal shearing in Albuquerque, you’re at the right place.
Metal shearing is a process that requires precision and experience. It’s not just a mechanical process as it requires experienced staff to shear the metals. Our sheet metal cutting services are one of the best in Albuquerque.
