A guillotine shearing machine, often simply referred to as a guillotine shear, is a mechanical tool used for cutting various types of sheet metal, plates, and other materials in a straight and precise manner. The name "guillotine" is derived from the resemblance of the shearing action to the blade of a guillotine used for beheading.
Key features and components of a guillotine shearing machine include:
Blade: The cutting tool of the guillotine shear, often made of high-strength steel, is mounted on a movable upper ram. It moves in a vertical or nearly vertical motion to cut through the material.
Bed: The fixed horizontal surface on which the material to be cut rests. It typically has markings and guides to help position the material accurately.
Backgauge: An adjustable stop or fence located behind the cutting area, which helps position the material for accurate and repeatable cuts.
Foot Pedal or Control Panel: Operators can control the machine using a foot pedal or a control panel to activate the shearing action.
The operation of a guillotine shear involves the following steps:
Material Placement: The operator places the sheet metal or material to be cut onto the bed of the machine, aligning it with the backgauge for precise positioning.
Setting Parameters: The operator can set the desired cutting length and other parameters on the control panel if the machine is equipped with such features.
Shearing Action: When the operator activates the machine, the upper blade descends in a straight vertical motion and cuts through the material, guided by the fixed lower blade. The shearing action is fast and efficient, resulting in a clean, straight edge.
Removed Material: The cut piece falls away from the rest of the material, and the operator can remove it for further processing or use.
Guillotine shearing machines are commonly used in metalworking and fabrication industries for cutting materials such as steel, aluminum, brass, and more. They are known for their accuracy, speed, and the ability to produce clean and precise cuts. The size and capacity of guillotine shearing machines can vary, with larger industrial models capable of cutting thick and wide sheets, while smaller models are suitable for lighter materials.
These machines are essential tools in metal fabrication shops, manufacturing facilities, and various industries where precise cutting of sheet metal and similar materials is required.
● The streamlined welded machine structure achieves high rigidity; the machine is designed by ANSYS software which can ensure the reliability and precision of the shearing machine.
● The motors for backgauge are controlled by inverter, which can achieve high positioning accuracy 0.05mm of the backguage by changing the frequency and voltage of motor.
● Top blade with four cutting edges and bottom blade with four cutting edges (6CrW2Si).
● X axis(Backgauge) and cutting time can be programmed by E21S system controller, which can store up to 40 groups of programs.
● Cutting angle can be adjusted by CNC controller, Blade gap can be motorized controlled.
● Hydraulic overload can be protected by overflow valve, knife rack returns by Nitrogen cylinders.
● Foot switch with emergency button can stop the machine immediately when accident happens.
● Adjusting knife gap between upper and bottom blades can achieve better cutting performance.
● Front arms with ruler and roll balls can ensure the cutting accuracy and feed the material easily.
