Shear Genius® SGe6 and SGe8 provides more capacity, quality and cost efficiency for flexible sheet metal working than any other comparable system. Experience since 1987 and over 2200 delivered Shear Genius® units delivered around the world tells it all.

The vast majority of all fabricated sheet metal components are rectangular, so a highly economical method to produce them is to perform first punching and then shear the components loose in the same automatic process with an integrated right angle shear. Also, parts with two or three straight edges are perfect for fabrication with a right angle shear. The Shear Genius® philosophy is to provide one machine capable of transforming a full sized sheet into finished parts with scrap separated. These parts can be moved to final production stages without the need for secondary operations for costly material handling between loading, punching, shearing, sorting and unloading.

With Shear Genius® you can use pre-cut sheets, but normally standard size sheets are processed while major savings are achieved through efficient nesting. It is important not to think that this is the only way that Shear Genius® can be operated. When you need just a punching operation, Shear Genius® can be operated just as high-accuracy, high-performance turret punch press. Today, right angle shear technology is used throughout the industrial world in most varied applications, in independent production cells, or in central units within automatic material handling systems up to a factory-wide FMS level.
