Fixture – Shear cutting of roof tile profile

Herstellung Scherenmesser Sonderanfertigung

Problem:
Up until now the roof tile profile was separated by hand using the “Flex”. The profile cannot be cut to size on a conventional Guillotine. The profile contour is not a uniform one, and not captured in the drawing. The profile is supposed to be cut with low cutting pressure.
Solution:
Westermann24 provides their customers with a complete solution. The profile is measured and the cutting sequence of the shear blades is constructively determined.
Westermann24 produces a precisely guided fixture which guarantees a cutting gap adjustment of 0,01mm. The stable design even makes cutting multiple sheet layers possible. The fixture is operated by a workshop press.
