ProStar™ Plate Shear - PRSPS38

ProStar™ plate shears outperform most other shears for quality of cut, durability, reliability and manageability. Using a patented mechanical linkage system and coupled with a low-rake blade, the guillotine action of our plate shears is clean and precise.

Standard Features

  • Fixed, low-rake blade; excellent cut visibility
  • Single, center-mounted cylinder transfers energy to three pressure points
  • Independent hydraulic hold-down
  • 36 in. front-operated manual back gauge
  • 24 in. squaring arm
  • Even distribution of energy across the blade avoids "flexing" of the blade
  • Minimal adjustments of blade gap when switching from thin to thick material
  • Forklift handling or overhead lifting
3d pipe cutting machines by Praxair cut with plasma or oxyfuel and enable extreme accuracy with an optional bevel.
