The most common shearing services materials are sheet metal and plates. Blanking, piercing, roll slitting, and trimming are all shearing operations we provide for metals such as aluminum, steel, stainless steel, bronze, iron, and copper. We can also shear fabric, paper and plastics.

Shearing is a fabrication process that trims and removes unwanted material. It doesn’t need heat or produce waste.

Shearing services and die cutting services is when a moving blade called a “punch” is used the piece being sheared against a die, or fixed blade.

Typical sheet shearing services tolerance is 0.1 inch, Proshort can get the tolerance to .005 inch.

Surface finishes happen within 250 to 1000 microinches range, Proshort can double these with accuracy. A secondary operation is needed if you want better surfaces than these.
