800 G Plate Shear Pacific has been a leader in hydraulically-powered fabrication machine tools for more than fifty years and the G-Series continues to represent the "cutting edge" in production sheet and plate shearing. The G-Series is known for its ruggedness, reliability and accuracy. It's design has evolved through the years to enhance productivity and quality of cut whatever the thickness capacity or material typefrom the thin sheet to plate steel, from standard steels and aluminum to exotic alloys.
Choose from 3/8" to 1-3/4" capacity, standard models, 6'-36' standard bed lengths (see specification chart below).
Consider these key machine features/user benefits
Rugged Interlocked Construction: Ram, bed and extra-deep side housings are produced from heavy steel plate and interlocked/welded to maximize rigidity, resist deflection. Interlocked cylinder mountings and the rigid vee design result in true centerline loading and minimized frame deflection. Precise ram guiding is ensured via proven components like heavy-duty, non -binding guides and "through the cut" pullbacks that provide a constant load on slideways and eliminates guide clearances. 18" deep throat is standard. State-Of-The-Art Hydraulic System: Force is transferred from one cylinder to the other as the cut progresses, delivering a smooth "full power" stroke at constant, shock-free speeds. Modular stacked valve system minimizes piping and special manifolding. Our two-speed shearing feature delivers increased strokes per minute when processing material at 2/3rds or less of the rated thickness capacity. Superior Operational Controllability: Complete control of all shearing variables is attainable, including knife clearance, rake angle, back gauge positioning, stroke length and speed and hold downs. (DNC control is available optionally). Optional Features:
Material Handling Devices (optional features include air operated ball transfers and/or hydraulic front roll systems for aiding the handling/feeding of heavy plate, slitting gages for the progressive alignment of materials longer than the length of the shear, and dual footswitches for easier two man operation) DNC Controls (memory capacity of 24,480 sequences, accurate to +/-.005"; 15 digit alpha/numeric LED display) Other optional features include:
High Carbon/High Alloy (Grade 1) Shear Knives for Special Applications Power Knife Clearance Adjustment Hold down Tonnage Control for Mark-Free Applications Automated Centralized or Manual One-Shot Lubrication Systems. G-Series Specification Chart: Model 800 G
