If processing ACSR Cable or similar type of cable, the ACSR Shear (M16-2) provides a safe and efficient means of reducing long cable lengths in seconds.. It is simple to load, to operate and to maintain. The ACSR Shear M16-2 offers a very useful and economic way of preparing solid cables for granulation in a granulation system.
The principle of operation of the shear is a flying knife and a static knife. During every revolution the flying knife passes the static knife and creates a scissors action, which cuts through any cable that overhangs the static knife. The flying knife operates at a constant speed of 400 rpm, which means that the speed of the cutting measured in meters per minute is determined by the feed rate of the cable through the hydraulic feed rollers.
