SHEARING

Shearing

Harbor Steel can accurately cut everything from light gauge sheets to ½” plates, from narrow strips to 12’ wide plates. We also have the capability to shear flat bars, angles, rounds, and rebar to close tolerances. If a saw or flame cut edge is not a requirement, consider this less expensive option.

Shearing is a process which cuts stock without the formation of chips or the use of burning or melting. The most commonly sheared materials are in the form of sheet metal or plates, however rods can also be sheared.
