Adjusting the Panformer Shear

  • shear can be set for different coil widths
  • to cut efficiently blades must be adjusted

 

Correct Shear Setting

  • the top bar is positioned so that the female leg is under the middle of the shear blade
  • this gives room for the chip to curl and fall free
  • this allows a clean cut that will not deform the leg
 

 

Incorrect Shear Setting

  • the top bar is positioned so that the leftmost blade is too close to the female leg
  • this will cause the chips to clog in the teeth of the shear
  • the shear will not make a clean cut
 

 

Incorrect Shear Setting

  • the shear in this picture is set to pierce the top of the leg
  • this will result in an uneven and very messy cut
