Hydraulic Shears

Keep your shears operating at optimal levels with regular shear blade changes

Don’t underestimate the importance of shear blade changes in maintaining and maximizing the capacity of your hydraulic shears. Follow our guide to ensure improved cutting accuracy, increased capacity, and reduced burrs for optimal industrial processes. At Independence Machinery, we understand the importance of proper maintenance and offer regular services to keep your equipment in top shape.

When it comes to industrial machinery, proper maintenance is essential for optimal performance. This is especially true for hydraulic shears, which are used to cut and shape heavy metal materials. One crucial aspect of hydraulic shear maintenance is ensuring the blades are changed regularly. Whenever a hydraulic shear is operating, it experiences significant wear and tear, which can lead to decreased effectiveness, and even endangerment to the operator if the equipment is not functioning properly.

Here are some reasons why shear blade changes are so important for maintaining and maximizing the capacity of your hydraulic shears:

1. Improved Cutting Accuracy
Hydraulic shear blades can become dull or damaged over time due to cutting hard materials. This can result in rough or inaccurate cuts which is unacceptable for your industry and could damage your machine’s real estate and processes.

2. Increased Capacity
As a result of worn-out or dull blades, the capacity of the shear can diminish. Replacing blades can restore your machine back to its original diminishing shape.

3. Reduced Burrs
Burrs refer to rough or jagged edges that occur when a piece of material is cut. Over time, these burrs can damage the materials you are working with and even cause accidents. By changing your shear blades regularly, you eliminate the risk of burrs forming on the cut edges.
