Lindemann™ PowerCut™ metal shears.

Lindemann™ PowerCut™ metal shears

Shears with sophisticated technology

Lindemann™ PowerCut™ metal shears have been specially developed to process medium production volumes with minimum energy consumption and costs. Their production capacity is up to 51 tonnes (56 US tons) per hour and up to 6 cuts per minute.

Less wear

Large over stroke of press lid and side compactor. All critical parts made of highly wear-resistant Lindur. Automated lubricating system minimizes friction. 

Less downtime

Generously dimensioned and bolted. Easy to maintain. Advanced fault diagnosis system. Hydraulic blade tensioning device.

Intelligent control systems

Intelligent hydraulic management resulting in faster working cycles. Optimized programs for different types of scrap.

Global coverage, local presence

Engineers, service personnel and other experts around the world.

Lindemann™ PowerCut™ metal shears features

Less malfunctions during the process

Instead of the usual proximity and limit switches, in the case of the Lindemann™ PowerCut™ a non-contact positiondetermining system is used.

The positions of the lid, side-compression, stamper and shearing cylinders are continuously monitored by means of an magnetostrictive device. The pusher cylinder is monitored with a protected laser system, which is installed underneath the slanted cover.

More efficiency when cutting

By guiding the blade slide in a V-shaped, adjustable rail, we achieve far greater cutting precision than you can obtain using other technologies. This saves energy when cutting and wear is considerably reduced due to the elimination of uncontrollable forces.

Valuable parts housed safely

The most sensitive and valuable components of a scrap shear, such as the hydraulic and electronic elements, are installed in a standard-size container, which eliminates the need for a pump house.
