N-Series NBS box shears.

N-Series NBS box shears

Compact, robust and reliable

N-Series NBS box shears are compact, robust and reliable horizontal scrap shears. As one single unit that is easy to transport and install, they are ideal for small scrap processors, remote job sites or temporary demolition sites. NBS shears can process miscellaneous material including sheet metal scrap, ELV auto bodies, skeletal scrap, rebar, pipe, profiles and selected heavy melting steel (HMS).

Increased uptime

Automatic lubrication. Replaceable wear plates in high wear areas.

Easy to transport

Hook lift system for truck transport. No permanent foundation required. Minimal installation time required on-site. Small space requirement for operation.

Easy to operate

Electric or diesel drive options. Continuous loading. Economical automatic operation.

Global coverage, local presence

Engineers, service personnel and other experts around the world.

N-Series NBS box shears features.

All N-Series NBS box shear components, including the power and control units, are integrated within one single box design, small enough to be hoisted on a truck equipped with a hooklift.

With the remote control and the fully automatic processing mode of the shear, the operation does not require a dedicated machine operator. Also, in combination with its large hopper (optional), the shear can be fed continuously.

How does it work?

1. The material to be processed is continuously fed into the feed hopper (A).

2. The horizontally moving stepped compression unit functions as a combination of pusher and stamper. It supports the gravity based movement of the material downward and forward to the shear blades while compressing the material and holding it against the front wall of the box during the shearing process (B).

3. The main hydraulic cylinder moves the horizontal bladeslide forward, underneath the compression unit. Blades mounted on the front of the bladeslide and at the lower edge of the box front wall shear the material (C).

4. The continued movement of the bladeslide pushes the cut material horizontally out of the cutting chamber onto the ground (D).
