Shearing force calculator

choose the most advanced and reliable guillotine shears in the world

With this calculator you can determine the force required to shear sheet metal, simply by entering the material’s ultimate tensile strength, thickness, and blade angle (rake angle).

We normally use a rake angle between 0,5° and 3°. Results may be less reliable outside this interval, especially for values below 0,5°.
