What is Shear Slitting?

Shear slitting uses top and bottom blades to replicate the function of circular scissors. The main purpose of a shear slitter is to cut material at the desired cut point while leaving behind a clean edge. There are two main designs used in developing shear cutting machinery, including:

  • Shaft-to-shaft: In this shear slitting equipment, both the bottom and top axis are mounted onto a fixed shaft using a collar assembly. This is sometimes called a stacked shear assembly or a quill system.
  • Pneumatic Holders: The other type of shear slitting machinery uses pneumatic holders on the top axis which are mounted using a dovetail-bar or linear rail adapter.
