CINCINNATI Hydraulic Shears provide power and high value for low-cost, dependable shearing and are available in standard capacities for cutting 10 gauge up to 3/4" metal plate.All steel interlocked construction improves reliability by eliminating stresses inherent with welded joints. Clevis mounted "swivel bearings" allows unrestricted movement of cylinders and eliminates oil leakage caused by binding or twisting. Twin precision lead screws are mounted in a heavy duty steel frame to maintain precise backgage alignment. Shock absorbing springs further protect position accuracy and compensate for material impact against the gage surface. The backgage is easily set parallel to the lower knife by micrometer adjusting nuts at the end of the guides. Electronically variable cut length results in fast stroking speeds. Machine cycling is initiated using a convenient footswitch. Quick response-time valves with microprocessor control are key reasons for faster processing and higher productivity. Unique knife removal fixture reduces knife rotation or changing time by 40 percent with less physical effort. Low profile, modern, compact design enables operator to maintain complete control of material whether processing thick or thin, narrow or wide sheets.
CINCINNATI Mechanical Shears are available in standard capacities from ¼" to ½" mild steel. This power squaring shear is designed to make the maximum number of cuts per hour. Many options and accessories are available.
Portable machine controls are pedestal mounted for easy, convenient operation. The power-operated backgage with digital control enables accurate setups to be made quickly.
Electronically variable rake and cut length result in fast stroking speeds. Machine cycling is initiated using a convenient footswitch. Quick response-time valves with microprocessor control provide faster processing and higher productivity.
Material positioning occurs as the pre-programmed microcomputer control properly positions the backgage. The LED readout of actual gage position in .001" or .01 millimeters allows the operator to quickly verify the gage position. Twin precision lead screws are mounted in a heavy-duty steel frame to maintain precise backgage alignment. Shock absorbing springs further protect position accuracy and compensate for material impact against the gage surface.
Final blank accuracy is maintained within tight tolerances cut after cut, using the programmable microcomputer gage control which automatically positions the backgage within + .005".
High-pressure hydraulic holddowns clamp material securely with tons of force to prevent movement during cutting. Holddowns can be activated independent of the knife permitting verification of material position. This feature will improve accuracy when cutting to a scribed line.
Long life on all wearing surfaces is further assured by centralized automatic lubrication, delivering oil to all necessary lubrication points.
Protection of the precision backgage against plate impact is provided by shock absorbing springs.
Shielding the backgage cross shaft from damage by lift trucks and crane hooks is assured by locating it forward of the ram brace.
Blank accuracy and parallelism are maintained by precise calibration of micrometer adjusting nuts with graduations of .001" on each backgage screw.
Maximum reliability and ease of maintenance are assured by the unique hydraulic manifold block on which all valves are mounted with flanged fittings and "O' ring seals. This eliminates the majority of piping and fittings plaguing maintenance personnel on conventional hydraulic shears.
Trouble free operation is maintained by self-aligning clevis mounted cylinders, which eliminate binding of packing and minimize oil leakage.
CINCINNATI CV Series Shear Conveyors can be optionally added to new CINCINNATI HS, SE, and G Series shears as well as existing CINCINNATI hydraulic and mechanical shears. One operator performs the normal function of feeding material into your shear while stacking and scrap separation are accomplished simultaneously. Where secondary shearing is required the blanks can be brought to the front of the shear in a neat stack for processing into finished blanks. Because stacking is now an integral part of the shearing process, your shear is available for a greater number of hours each day to produce blanks. Material is handled only when feeding it into the shear.There is not requirement for the operator to pick up the tons of finished blanks which are produced each day. Sturdy material supports guide the material over rollers from the shear table, minimizing sheet sag and allowing the material to be firmly positioned against the backgage. They retract quickly when the shear is cycled allowing the sheared blank to fall onto the conveyor belts. Deep back pieces, up to the limit of the backgage, contact the probes on the shear's backgage. You can gage ferrous and non-ferrous materials in a wide range of gauges with equal ease and accuracy using the material supports.
The productivity comes from overcoming the limitations inherent to conventional lasers. Straight line cutting speed is maximized using a resonator with 4000 watts of CW power, beam enhancement optics and 400 PSI assist gas capabilities. The motion system provides high accelerations and accuracies through the use of linear motors, linear encoders and advanced aerospace composite construction. Maximum positioning speed of the cutting head is 12,020 inches per minute. Dual pallets permit the operator to simultaneously unload parts and load new material on one pallet while the laser is cutting on the other pallet. The conveniently located control, with 15” color LCD touch screen display and full sized standard keyboard, provides the operator with a user-friendly Human Machine Interface (HMI) with nesting software. Dynamic Power Control (DPC) automatically maintains the proper relationship between laser power and the instantaneous feed rate, which is critical for high part accuracy and quality edge condition. The Autofocus laser cutting head automatically adjusts the focus to .001”. A self-aligning lens holder, nozzle tip assembly and laser head construction permits the processing of different materials with minimal set up.
The CL-800 controls Human Machine Interface (HMI) is easily understood and intuitive in its use enabling operators to produce good parts independently. In a work environment where operators often switch from machine to machine it is key to have a control where one can be cutting parts quickly, fast and accurately. The CL-800 control excels in this area. The CINCINNATI HMI has a touch screen display, easy to understand buttons and a full size keyboard. Using the Windows Operating System, the operator feels right at home. The HMI is located where the operator can easily monitor the cutting process while loading and unloading the CL-800. Rather than using cumbersome tech tables, the CL-800 uses Dynamic Power Control (DPC), which computes optimum power and the fastest possible cutting speed for any material on the fly.

3D printing or Additive manufacturing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. 3D printing is also considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling (subtractive processes).
