SafanDarley has recently developed and manufactured a special shear for the German company Maxion Wheels. This electric/hydraulic guillotine shear combines all of our experience and technical knowledge in the field of efficient sheet metal cutting. The result is a Shear that cuts strips of 13.5mm thick steel plate into different widths every 6 seconds.
Maxion Wheels is a manufacturer of steel rims for passenger cars, trucks, etc. For the production of the rims, Maxion Wheels has developed a production method that ensures as little waste as possible to keep the price of the rims as low as possible. The VS 1522 shear is an important part of this production line and must therefore work reliably and accurately. It is essential that the shear cuts with high quality to ensure that no problems arise in the rest of the production line. The shear can cut up to 22mm thick steel plates with a length of 1500mm.
The basis of the special shear is the advanced hybrid drive. This consists of a servo-electronic motor and a hydraulic pump, a combination that results in a low-noise and energy-saving system. In addition, this shear has a number of advantages such as a programmable start position for the blade and the automatic X-axis compensation of the blade gap.
In 2020 it will be 25 years since SafanDarley launched the first electric press brake on the market. Sustainable development that is of greater importance in today's society than ever before. An important milestone that SafanDarley, as the inventor of the E-Brake, will not let pass unnoticed.
