"The most dependable machine on the market today." 100% American Made In addition to the model AS shear, we now offer an economical model CS shear in ¼" x 10′ and ¼" x 12′ and 3/8" x 10′ and 3/8" x 12′ capacities. The CS is an extremely affordable version of the model AS shear that we have been making for over 30 years. The model CS shear has the same hydra-mechanical, guillotine straight line cutting action drive system as the AS, as well as the 5 year parts and limited labor warranty. Like the AS, the CS also comes standard with our 36" travel, PLC controlled backgauge with "Go-To" and multi-level programming. The main difference between the AS and the CS is that the CS is only available in the ¼" and 3/8" x 10′ and 12′ capacities and it is only available with a limited amount of options, whereas the AS is available in many lengths and capacities and has a wider variety of options to choose from. An advantage of the CS is that it comes standard with many features that the AS does not come with. Like the AS, the CS comes standard with an extremely heavy duty frame; Industrial quality electrics; 80,000 P.S.I. steel capacity, and the same high quality, readily available components. Unlike the AS however, the CS also comes standard with a manual quick change blade gap adjustment; a quantity of (2) hand slots and (2) t-slots in the shear table; a 4′ squaring arm with imbedded scale and an impressive list of other standard features. Optionally, the CS can be equipped with a longer squaring arm; 24" t-slot support arms; swing stops for the squaring arm; gravity stops for the t-slots; protractors; impact pads for the hold down cylinders, higher carbon blades and conveying, stacking and sheet support systems.
