PNEUMATIC SHEET SUPPORT
A sheet support is a recommended option for providing an accurate dimension when supporting lighter gauge material parallel with the shear table and gauge bar. Light gauge material will quickly droop once is pushed far from the shear knife edge. Consequently, the dimension on the drop off piece will not be consistent with the backgauge readout.
Designed for lighter gauge metal. Offered for models 61356 - 625012
Designed for 20 gauge material and heavier. Incorporates 3 rows of support arms.
BACKGAUGE TRAVEL EXTENSION
A 48" backgauge travel is available as an option in lieu of the standard 36" length. This Option is available for models 61356 through 650020.
A longer squaring arm may be required to accurately square larger sheets. 6', 8'. 10' and 12' arms are available as an option. The squaring arm length is measured from the cut line. Each arm includes a recessed steel rule measuring 1/16" and 1mm increments...plus one adjustable sliding stop. Ball transfers mounted into the arms are a recommended option for the 6500 series and larger models.
BALL TRANSFER IN TABLE
FRONT ARMS RECESSED SCALES
These are available in 2', 4', and 6' lengths and simply mount to the front of the table. The arms are T-slotted and equipped with disappearing stops for front gauging. A steel ruler reading inch/metric can also be recessed into the arms. For an additional charge, ball transfers may be mounted into the front arms.
HIGH SPEED HYDRAULIC PACKAGE
This system offers approximately 30% higher cycle times then the standard package. Horsepower and pump volumes increase with this option. This motion is not available for the 6135 or 6100 series models.
HOLD DOWN PADS
Hold downs can be equipped with urethane pads to eliminate marking of aluminum or other sensitive materials.
LIGHT CURTAIN GUARDING
To enhance safety and allow an operator to position smaller pieces of metal into position, a light curtain may be installed in lieu of the finger guard. The ACCURSHEAR will not cycle if an operators hands interferes with the light curtain beam. This curtain is installed to satisfy the appropriate OSHA and ANSI regulations for safety requirements.
- Ball transfers mounted in the table are a standard feature on all Accurshear models 8500 and larger.
-They assist the movement of heavy materials over the table surface.
-They may be ordered as an option on 6135, 6250 and 6375 series models.
LONGER SQUARING ARMS
Accurveyor Stacking System
The Accurshear Conveyor/Stacker System
is operated directly from the control panel
at the front of the shear.
It is estimated that material handling consumes up to 95% of a shear operator's time. The Accurshear conveyor/stacker helps to eliminate much of this time by efficiently separating the trim cuts from the finished pieces, and then stacking them neatly at the rear of the machine. The payback time on this system is fast. Take a moment and consider some of the many benefits described below.
Reduce Material Handling and Increase Operator Efficiency
1) Work Support Arms
Improves accuracy because the sheet is supported parallel
Eliminates the need to manually support light gauge sheets from behind the machine
Holding material level with the shear table enables accurate backgauge readings
The supports drop systematically with the shear cycle thus holding the material and reducing plate tear
Provides safer working conditions for operators and helpers
Eliminates production slowdown due to fatigue
Reduces backgauge damage from cut material
3) Trim Cut Separator
Separates edge trim from production blanks
Opens via the Accurveyor foot switch or front console button
Eliminates the need for a person behind the shear to do the stacking
Stacks the material neatly for removal by an overhead crane, fork truck or pallet jack
5) Air Operated Tamper
Air operated tampers to facilitate the stacking of sheared pieces
