Controlled and automated shearing

Gasparini guillotine shears can be equipped with a precise sheet metal thickness meter, connected to the machine’s numerical control.

This device has two working modes. In the first one, the machine measures the plate thickness. Should the material thickness be outside a specified range, that is if it is too thin or too thick, the machine will not cut it. In this way we avoid mistakes and we protect the machine from overloads and potential damages.

The second mode allows to measure the sheet metal thickness and to automatically configure shearing parameters such as cutting angle and blade clearance.
