Oscillating Shear Die Technology

Oscillating shear die tooling turns a conventional blanking press into a high production trapezoid and parallel shape blanker. The tooling is provided on a self-contained die set for easy locating and clamping to the press bolster plate. The shear blade oscillates up to +30 degrees with each press stroke to produce net-shaped blanks and optimize material usage. The oscillating shear die combines conventional shearing with modern servo technology to provide flexible and fully programmable shearing operations. Parameters such as shear angle and production speed are stored in the Job Recipe and recalled through a Panelview MMI.
