Metal shearing machine is specialized in cutting all kinds of scrap metal, including but not limited to sheet metal, plates, copper, steel structure and bars.

Our hydraulic metal shear machine is favored for their efficient cutting capacity and resource utilization benefits, so they are widely used in scrap metal recycling, construction and dismantling, metal processing, scrap car dismantling, shipbuilding and dismantling, etc.

When you want to do scrap metal recycling, we have 3 types of metal shears available: alligator shear, tiger-head shear and gantry shear. If want to know more, contact us now!

Alligator shear

This kind of metal shear machine is a small cutting tool with blades constructed to resemble the mouth of an alligator, hence the name. It is commonly used for small scrap metal shearing work.

This hydraulic alligator shearing machine is suitable for cutting small materials such as rope, wire, cord, plastic tubing and other small materials.

Sheet metal shearing machine

The hydraulic metal shearing machine is a more powerful cutting tool with curved blades that look similar to a tiger’s head. It is commonly used in industry and construction to cut thicker metal materials, rebar, barbed wire and more.

A tiger head shear is a high-strength tool for tasks that require more cutting power.

Gantry shear

A gantry shear is a large industrial shear used to cut large metal sheets or steel. It is commonly used in the manufacturing, metalworking and scrap metal recycling industries.

With its high cutting capacity and automated control system, a gantry shear can handle large quantities of metal material, cutting it precisely to the required size and shape.

Advantages of scrap metal shearing machine

  • Efficient Cutting: The metal plate shearing machine efficiently cuts through a variety of metal materials, reducing them into manageable pieces for recycling or disposal.
  • Reduced Volume: Shearing machine significantly reduces the volume of scrap metal, making it easier to store, transport, and process.
  • Cost Savings: By reducing the size and volume of scrap metal, our hydraulic metal cutting machine helps save on transportation and disposal costs.
  • Enhanced Safety: Shuliy metal shear machine is designed with safety features to protect operators during the cutting process.
  • Material Versatility: Our machine can handle different types of metal, from steel and aluminum to copper and alloys.
  • Customization: We can customize the steel metal cutting machine to suit specific cutting needs and material dimensions.
  • Environmental Benefits: By preparing scrap metal for recycling, our metal shear contributes to sustainable resource use and reduces the environmental impact of metal production.

Applicable materials of hydraulic sheet metal shearing machine

The sheet metal cutting machine can be used to cut a wide range of metal materials, including but not limited to:

  • Steel: This includes common steel plates, tubes, bars and blocks.
  • Stainless steel: Stainless steel is a corrosion-resistant metal, and metal shears can cut stainless steel sheets and tubes.
  • Aluminum: Metal shear machine can cut aluminum plates, tubes and profiles.
  • Copper: Suitable for cutting copper products such as copper plates, copper tubes and copper rods.
  • Brass: Brass is a yellow metal alloy commonly used in the manufacture of tubes and parts.
  • Titanium: Titanium alloy is a light but strong metal and metal shears can be used to cut titanium sheets and tubes.
  • Alloy materials: Our metal cutting machine can handle a variety of metal alloys, such as nickel alloys and cobalt alloys.
  • Scrap metal: This scrap metal shearing machine is also commonly used in the scrap metal recycling industry, including scrap cars and scrap metal components.

The cutting capacity of a metal shearing machine usually depends on the type and specifications of the machine, and different machines may be suitable for different types and thicknesses of metal materials. Therefore, when choosing a metal shear, you need to consider the type and size of the material to be cut to ensure that you choose the right machine.
