Mobile scrap shears are work tools for excavators. They are a necessity to make sure that the excavator is suitable for cutting steel. They come in different shapes and sizes, and are usually classified based on tons of cutting force.
The shears are widely applicable for cutting all kinds of scrap to demolishing buildings with steel structures, and are even used even for cutting whole ships. These machines have to withstand all kinds of environments for example on a construction site with a lot of dust or dealing with extreme temperatures. Due to the enormous cutting force there are high demands on the toughness and wear resistance of the knives.
It is important to use the correct high-quality steel for the production of the knives. In general, 1.2767 wst. and 1.2746 wst. (4% nickel percentage) are used for these products. Willpro has a large stock of this material available in various sizes. This material has a delivery time of approximately 4 to 6 months. That is why the stock of steel is monitored, based on the planned purchase of the customer, to make sure there is always enough available and reordered on time.
Willpro makes its own 3D production drawing for each product, based on the customer drawing. Do you have doubts about handing over these drawings? We only supply manufacturers and always sign a non-disclosure agreement to make sure your drawings are in safe hands.
Based on the 3D production drawing, the material is sawn and processed on the CNC milling machines. Then the knives undergo a heat treatment, this ensures that the products get the correct hardness and wear properties. After this heat treatment, the knives are machined to their final size. This is done by grinding or by CNC milling.
As an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), we can provide the knives with the logo and characteristics of our customers, so that it fits in with their own manufacturing. After providing the company characteristics and a final check, the knives are stored in our warehouse or delivered directly to the customer.
