Infinitely Variable, Quick-Change Blade Gap Adjustment

All Standard shears come equipped with our positive drive, mechanical, quick-change blade gap adjustment. The AS250-6 up through the AS375-12 models are equipped with our Infinitely Variable side adjustable manual system.

The 14' and longer and all 1/2" and larger shears are equipped with the Infinitely Variable front operated Power blade gap system. Uniform and precision movement along machined tapered gibbs allows you to zero in on an exact precision cut.

On each end of the shear ram is our Extremely Heavy-Duty Gibbing system. This positive mechanical system provides a smooth, uniform gap adjustment via precision machined tapered gibbs. Each gibb plate (#1) slides opposite of each other on oil impregnated nylon called Nylatron (#2). This Nylatron insures no excessive heat or friction is built up. These gibbs also control the front to back and left to right forces of the ram travel delivering the most precision cut available on any shear.

Fully Loaded, Extremely Heavy Duty Table

Each shear comes standard with an incredibly heavy duty , precision machined table. Each machine is equipped with multiple large hand slots for easy part handling. Plus t-slots for setting stops and front gauging. Also included is a 4' squaring arm (2' off table on right side) with a precision inlaid scale.
