Safan M-Shear

The Safan M-Shear combines technical ingenuity in the area of efficient sheetmetal shearing. The result is a functional design that satisfies current requirements as well as any to be expected in the near future. Various possibilities for expansion, such as material-handling systems, are already incorporated in the design.

At Safan M-Shear’s core is the advanced hybrid drive for the cutting beam. This consists of a servo-electronic motor and a hydraulic pump that only runs when the cutting beam is in motion, a combination that produces a remarkably quiet and energy-saving system.

In addition, Safan M-Shear offers a series of innovative extras, such as a programmable starting position for the cutting beam, automatic x-axis compensation when adjusting clearance, and Touch Screen control with data management of the cutting programmes.

The standard equipment for the Safan M-Shear includes blades with four cutting edges, on both the top and bottom. The shearing is done economically because blade wear is spread over the blade’s entire length, with the programmable starting position of the cutting beam. Cutting small blanks can also be done on the right side of the shear.

Also included, is an independent left and right clearance adjustment with built-in measuring sensor. Accuracy is +/- 0.01 mm. Due to the special frame construction, clearance is self compensating so that, even with a load in the middle of the shear, the clearance remains constant over the entire length. The cutting beam guides are constructed in a maintenance free manner by using self lubricating graphite bronze. The Safan M-Shear also offers many additional features.

Safan B-Shear

Available in one standard model, the Safan B-Shear still provides the same high-grade quality and functionality as the Safan M-Shear.

At Safan B-Shear’s core is the advanced hybrid drive for the cutting beam. In addition, the Safan B-Shear offers a series of innovative extras, such as a programmable starting position for the cutting beam, automatic x axis compensation when setting the clearance and Touch Screen control with data management of the cutting programmes.

The hybrid drive consists of a servo-electronic motor and a hydraulic pump, a combination that operates in a remarkably quiet and energy-saving manner. The motor only runs when the cutting beam is in motion. This provides two advantages in a single stroke. The user saves energy, and the cutting cycle produces minimum noise.

The standard equipment for the Safan B-Shear includes blades with four cutting edges, on both the top and bottom. They enable users to shear in an economical manner for several reasons, including the fact that blade wear is spread over the blade’s entire length. With the programmable starting position of the cutting beam, short shearing work can also be done on the right side of the shear.

The Safan B-Shear is an economical choice for cutting sheets up to 6 mm thick and 3 metres wide, with no additions or options. Standard equipment comprises everything needed to deliver top performances for low possible costs. In addition to the above-mentioned equipment, the Safan B-Shear also offers features such as:

  • Cutting line lighting
  • 2 support arms, adjustable over the entire width of the table (L=1200 mm from the cutting line)
  • 2 squaring guides, left and right on the table (table width)
  • 2 rulers in the table
  • T slots and hand slots spread across the width of the table
  • 1 T slot on the front of the table
  • 2 spring-action stops
  • Adjustable hold down cylinders
  • Automatic retraction of the backgauge for narrow strip widths
  • Pneumatic sheet support
  • Sheet support fingers in backgauge beam

All Safan Shears comply with Australian safety standards.
