    TOP SHEAR Chipless Shearing

    Ultra-fast tube-cutting system!

    Shears special materials.


    The ACS® TOP SHEAR system is incredibly efficient at cutting thin-walled and difficult-to- machine materials for a wide range of applications, with minimal cycle times and material loss. Examples include the production of fittings, hose clamps & disposable clamps as well as sealing or connecting elements. Increase your productivity today!

    Fully automated chipless shearing

    Cost-effective, non-stop production.
    Minimal unit costs and maximum output.

    Innovative, user-friendly and powerful

    Technical Functions

    • Production system for shearing pipes in single-cut mode
    • Chipless shearing process for thin-walled materials that are difficult to machine
    • Shearing without material loss
    • Minimal unit costs and maximum output
    • Outstanding tool service life thanks to servo-controlled shearing gap measurement including automatic monitoring and adjustment during the ongoing process
    • Inner and outer tools can be repeatedly sharpened
    • CNC production system
    • Ultra-dynamic servo drives
    • Minimal energy consumption
    • Fully automated production process
    • Material feed via bundle-loading magazine
    • Automatic separation and positioning of the initial material
    • Minimal set-up and unit costs thanks to minimal cycle times
    • Optimal process reliability in production
    • Maximum reliability and flexibility in production
    • User-friendly screen interfaces and clearly structured menu navigation
    • Job-based production process:
      • creation, storage and administration of job lists, products and cutting data
      • workpiece parameters and machine settings are loaded fully automatically and processed
      • evaluation and analysis of job-related production and cutting data
      • contactless material edge detection for material trim-cut and tag ends ≥ 0 mm
    • Defined outward transfer of workpieces via 2 possible material outlets
    • Crash monitoring and analysis
    • Monitoring of tension on the clamping tools
      • Clamping force continuously adjustable
    • Defined outward transfer of workpieces according to individual parameters, when e.g.
      • clamping errors occur
      • a cut is incomplete
    • Central monitoring and operation of the cutting tools and shearing parameters
      • Piece counter
      • Shearing surface
      • Shearing stroke
    • Compliant with CE requirements as well as applicable directives and guidelines of the European Union and North America

    Optimal performance right from the start!
