Alpha™ Mach II Flying Shears: 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) to 3 inches (76.2 mm) OD with a max wall of 0.160 inches (4 mm)
Alpha™ High Speed Flying Shears provide tube producers with the highest cuts per minute at speeds up to 1000 fpm (300 mpm). The patented Alpha™ double-cut dieset cuts dimple-free ready-for-market product directly off the mill. High precision cut capacity (± 0.039 inches (1.0 mm) at full speed) eliminates the need for expensive post-processing and enables the producer to deliver cut-to-length pieces directly to secondary operations or to the end user.
All Alpha™ Flying Shears utilize a high performance rack and pinion drive which reduces cut cycle times making short part length production a reality. Closed-loop servo control ensures constant monitoring of tube speed, dieset position/velocity and ram position. The final result is high cut-length accuracy and the shortest cycle times available.
