Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Shear, part of SOLIDWORKS: Sheet Metal Design.
(SOUND). So, we're standing in front of a…mechanical shearer. This is basically a large paper cutter for…sheet metal material. This can cut 10 foot across by about 48…inches deep. I'm going to bring this material in, slide…it up against the back gauge. Now, I can adjust the back gauge and the,…the length of my cut here by moving this either forward or backwards, and then…inching out to size. When I'm ready, I'm going to slide the…material in, step on the pedal (SOUND), and shear the material.…On the back of the machine, you can see the material gets sheared off, slides down…a little ramp, and into a bin. From the side, we see we slide it up…against the back edge, and then shear off the material.…
My final piece, cut to size, and ready to go.…
