Shear Angles

Shear Angles can be applied to all punch points. These angles are used primarily to reduce slug pulling. Single and Double Shears can be used to reduce the punching force as well as minimize slug pulling. These alterations are prepriced and do not add to the standard delivery of the product.

Shear Angles are also available on Classified Shapes, but are available as special order only.
