The guillotine shears improve one of the basic preparatory processes in metalworking – cutting sheet metal. In almost every sheet metal processing plant, the sheet metal packaging department, using coil sheet or standard sheets, feeds most of the other machines that carry out further planned operations. Industry is moving away from manual equipment, which is mostly used in small workshops, towards machines such as the sheet metal guillotine. Currently, the most popular solutions are electromechanical and hydraulic guillotine shears.
Electromechanical guillotine shears
Electromechanical guillotine PRIMEcut or SMARTcut from RAS available at Polteknik store are devices designed for thin sheets, usually up to a thickness of 1.0 -:- 3.0 mm. These machines have manual adjustment of the gap between the blades depending on the thickness of the sheet and have been equipped with special systems allowing, among others, to sort the material to the front and back of the machine. Due to the small thickness range of the sheets, the cutting angle offered by the guillotine is fixed. The machines are also equipped with a rear bumper driven by an AC motor and NC control, which allows you to conveniently program the desired dimension and quantity of cut pieces. The advantage of these machines is high speed and simplicity of construction.
Hydraulic Guillotine Shears
Thanks to the hydraulic drive, Baykal’s hydraulic guillotine shears allow to obtain a very high force transferred to the knives, which allows to separate sheet metal with a thickness of up to 40 mm! Baykal guillotines are equipped with digitally controlled adjustment of the gap between the blades, which is entered automatically after the type, thickness and length of the cut sheet has been entered. In order to reduce the twisting effect, the HNC models use an advanced “anti-twist” system, which involves pressing the material with hydraulic cylinders also from the bottom.
Regardless of the company profile, it is worth to bet on devices from the best manufacturers on the market, such as guillotine shears from the Turkish company Baykal and the German company RAS. Each of the available models is characterized by a robust construction and is equipped with subsystems that allow you to work efficiently for many working hours.
