Traditional guillotine shears only have two guides at the ends of the blade. During shearing, strains deformate the blade, forcing it to bow away from the bench. X-Cut shears, on the other hand, stand out because of a series of adjustable supporting pads that keep the blade in position. With Blade Pads we hold the ram along its entire length, to avoid that the blade clearance may vary in an uncontrolled way. The Blade Pads system is also used to adjust blade gap.
For this reason, Gasparini X-Cut guillotine shears ensure linearity and accuracy in any condition, for the best cutting quality in the world. Blades do not bend and the sheet metal edge is sheared at maximum cutting straightness and reliability.
Absence of side tracks: no load, wear and maintenance of these components.
No wearing of blocks between the cylinder and the moving blade.
The balanced load does not require a periodic recovery of clearance: less maintenance compared to a shear with side tracks.
The solution enables the adoption of the backgauge fixed to the structure of the guillotine shear.
