Schechtl SMT Shear
Schechtl shears are the leading architectural shears in the industry because they were intelligently designed from decades of sheet metal experience. There are three series of Schechtl Shears available, for light, medium and heavier gauge cutting. The SMT designed for 16 gauge, MSB for 14 gauge, and MSC for 11 gauge. All are motor driven plate shears. The deeper 30” backgauge (compared to 24” of competitors) gives more flexibility. Optional rollout wagon allows for easier unloading and moving of cut sheets. This shear will increase productivity with the 36” telescoping front sheet supports making it easy for one operator to handle even 5’ by 10’ sheets. The machine frame is a sturdy welded steel design.

- Extendable front support bar for easy single person operation
- All bearings and guideways are maintenance free
- Front return - huge space saver
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 15.57 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.
