What Is Metal Shearing?
Metal shearing is the process of cutting metal pieces into straight lines and exact sizes and shapes from larger flat metal sheet stock. The process begins with a calibrated machine holding the sheet stock in place between two blades at precise measurements. The upper blade, called the punch, has a squared edge and is slightly misaligned to the lower blade (also with a squared edge), called the die. This skew allows for intentional pressing on the sheet stock to create an angle. The power shear then exerts excessive, perpendicular force on the flat stock in a straight line from one end to the other, producing linear cuts with a slightly burred edge. Not unlike cutting a piece of paper with scissors, metal shearing allows us to alter and convert various metals into many useful solutions for a broad range of customers across all industries. Metal shearing is used on the sheet, strip, and plate stock and can create almost any geometric shape you require.

The Advantages of Metal Shearing
Shearing is an advanced fabrication process that can be applied to various metals. It also offers distinct advantages for clients looking custom shape metal for their products and processes. These benefits include:
- Simplicity: Metal shearing is one of the most trusted and time-honored production forms. It has survived alternative technological advances such as water and laser cutting because of its simplicity and low per-piece cost. Metal shearing can produce almost any shape as it has straight edges and leaves little to no kerf (a slit left by cutting).
- Versatility: The metal shearing process has uses across various metals, including aluminum, galvanized and hot rolled steel, titanium, and others. These metals are used continuously to fabricate today’s most essential items, tools, and constructions.
- Precise Fabrication: Shearing blades move at incredibly high speeds during the metal shearing process. This means you can adjust the sheet stock in whatever ways you want to create accurate, clean edges quickly and efficiently. Metal shearing works at almost any project scope as well, large or small, and can fabricate nearly any shape.
- No Loss of Material: Because metal shearing uses force, pressure, and angular separation, there is no material loss during the process. Unlike burning or melting, the metal sheet stock stays whole throughout the entire shearing operation, and the smoothly-created cuts have less distortion
