Shearing force calculator

Factors determining the performance of a sheet metal shear

The main factors determining shear performance are the shear’s cutting force, pressure force, cutting angle and the width of the upper blade stroke.

How to calculate the cutting force of a guillotine shear

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).

Strength of the material [N/mm²]:
Thickness [mm]:
Cutting angle [°]:
The required shear force is 1.61 ton
