Apex Shears produces Knives and Saws for any cutting or trimming applications in pipe and tube making lines as well as upstream and downstream operations.
ALPHA SHEAR BLADES are the CUT-OFF KNIVES for cutting profiles and tubes. The cutting effect of alpha cutters is achieved with combination of high pressure and high speed. Burr free cut of highest precision should be achieved and the cut profile should be free of deformation. Very short cutting times enable using these alpha cutters shear blades not only in stationary machines, but also in production lines during continuous cutting. In standard modification Alpha Cutters - alpha shear blades are made with PVD coating to prolong their lifetime, decrease friction coefficient and to avoid cool surfacing. These tools aren't standardized at all, that's why they are always tailored. For making the offer sending the drawing or sample is enough.
Unlike abrasive wheels, which hack a path through materials and generate heat, smoke and debris that can contaminate hydraulic cutting systems, these punch type tube cutter are impact cutting and hardened blades to slice cleanly through the work eliminating large volumes of waste.
Raw materials used in manufacturing of Alfa cutters for tube cutting and profile cutting is made from imported high speed steel [HSS m2] and moves up and down at high speed for throughout the cutting process.
Hardness retention is a very key factor in designing a Alfa cutter for tube and profile cutting since the cutting operation is applied in hot applications. We use high quality steel which has to pass all quality test before its used to manufacture Alfa cutter for tube cutting and profile slitting. High Speed Steel is used due to its property to sustain high operating temperatures without losing its temper (hardness) allows Alfa cutter in punch type tube cut off slitting process and to cut faster than other tool steels.
We welcome your drawings/designs for our consideration!
