Schechtl shears are the leading architectural shears in the industry because they were smartly designed from decades of sheet metal experience. They feature a deeper back-gauge of 30” (instead of 24”), a roll out wagon so you don’t have to unload the machine from your knees, and telescoping front support arms.
The MSB 3100 comes standard with a 30“ manually operated backgauge and pneumatic rear sheet support table. The sheet support system gently feeds the cut part forward upon completion of the cutting stroke. The rate of material drop is adjustable to accommodate for different material weight. This action virtually eliminates the need for the operator to retrieve parts from the rear of the machine. The backgauge handle is located toward the right side of the cutting stroke and the backgauge positioning can be adjusted the full 30” in less 7 seconds. The MSB is motor driven plate shear designed heavier gauge cutting than the SMT, up to 14 gauge. Choose from models with cutting lengths of 40”, 60”, 80” and 122”. Handling is simple: Put the metal sheet onto the table, push it between the cutting bars and start the process with the foot switch – that’s all. The machine frame is a sturdy welded steel design. The cutting bar is driven by a noiseless gear motor. All bearings and guide ways are maintenance-free.
