Sheet Metal Cutting Equipment

Schechtl MSC Shear

Schechtl shears are the leading architectural shears in the industry because they were intelligently designed from decades of sheet metal experience. Schechtl MSC is designed for heavy duty thicker steel and is a motor driven plate shear. Besides allowing the heaviest cutting of up to 11 gauge the MSC also has cutting lengths of more than 14 feet. Our most popular are the 10 foot 11-gauge and 13 foot 12-gauge versions. On the heavier gauge MSC shears there are five front support arms with T-slots, scales and gauge fingers for easy front gauging. All machines include a 40” squaring arm with inlaid scales. Longer squaring arms with T-slots and front gauging stops are also available. The deeper 30” backgauge (compared to 24” of competitors) gives more flexibility. Optional rollout wagon allows for easier unloading and moving of cut sheets. The machine frame is a sturdy welded steel design.


  • Heaviest cutting sheer up to 11 gauge
  • Sturdy welded steel machine frame
  • Extendable front support bar for easy single person operation
  • All bearings and guideways are maintenance free

The cutting blade is driven by a noiseless gear motor. On each side of the cutting table there are rectangular gauges with a scale of 15.75 in (stainless steel). During the cut, a mechanical hold-down bar with non-skid ebonite lining holds the part. The sheet support system gently feeds the cut part forward upon completion of the cutting stoke. The rate of material drop is adjustable to accommodate for different material weight. This virtually eliminates the need for the operator to retrieve parts from the rear of the machine.
