Work Method:

In order to precisely follow a line, it is important that the plate shearing is correctly aligned from the start. It is then easy to follow the line during shearing. The plate must be placed with its underside free at a height adjusted to the cutting table on the plate shearing machine. When shearing small plates, the shearing machine can be stationary and the plate guided manually.


Kavax weighs only 78 Lbs. (35 kilos) complete. It is easy to use in the most varied work places. It is ideal in steel mills and processing centers.

Short or Long Handle:

Length of standard handle and motor is 46". For confined areas, a shortened version (24" overall length) is available upon request at no additional cost.

Shearing priciples:

The material is cut between the upper and lower cutter wheels. The upper one is driven by an electric motor over a gear reducer. A small serration on the outer diameter of the upper wheel provides self-feeding. The operator only needs to guide the shear.

Cutting wheel:

Changing cutter wheels is done quickly without any special tools. The cutters can be resharpened.


The well-designed handle provides a comfortable working position, making work easier and more efficient.

Labor Safety:

It is equipped with safety cover over the cutting wheel and chuck. A tool rest swings down to safely store machine when not in use.
