Shear blade magnetizes light sheared strips. How to overcome this problem?
Send your shear blade to MASTERCUT and our specialists will demagnetize it. To eliminate this adhering problem in future our masters will de-mag your knives every time after manufacturing or sharpening. We suggest always accurately ground, demagnetizing, and removing grinding burr before installing any shear knives.
What is the best grade for cutting stainless steel?
The best performance of metal cutting blades is achieved by using optimal raw materials and correct hardness for various applications. For instance, to reduce the shear blades chipping it is recommended to hardened blades for cutting stainless steel to 55/56 Rockwell while have them hardened and tempered to 57/58 Rockwell for blades cutting carbon steel (*for thin sheets of steel less than 6mm). This hardness reduction is caused by a higher tensile strength of steel. However, this adjustment shortens periods between blades re grind and reduces abrasion. To get more information about optimal blade materials and hardness please ask for a technical support and advice when contact MASTERCUT on +44 1246 860811.
What is the clearance distance for Shear Knives?
Clearance depends on the age and type of shear machine being used. Generally, a clearance between knives is about 7% or less of the thickness of the material being sheared. An extreme attention has to be paid to ensure that the knives do not clash during operation.
How to maximize a lifetime of a Shear Knife edge?
When ordering a shear knife consider: the kind, the thickness, and the temperature of the material that is to be sheared. To ensure the cost-effective price always notice whether you will use the blade continuously or only infrequently.
