Schechtl manufacturers 13 different shear models to choose from. All models are ergonomically designed to be run by one operator with features you won’t find elsewhere. The MTB 4000 is designed for the industrial shearing market, providing quality shearing at 13’ lengths. The MTB 4000 comes standard with a 30″ front operated backgauge. The pneumatic rear sheet support holds the material up during the cutting process. Only after cutting is completed will the sheet support drop the material to the front. The rate of drop is fully adjustable based on type of material. The back gauge indicator and lever lock is located on the front/right side of the shear. Once the desired dimension is dialed in, the operator utilizes the lever to lock in it place. The positioning is fast, from 0-30″ in 6 seconds. Schechtl shears are also available in power operated and CNC controlled.
