Roper Whitney’s 10M14 Mechanical Sheet Metal Shear utilizes a simple, low-maintenance design, coupled with an array of standard features for an attractive combination of high value and solid performance. The electro-mechanical design of the 10M14 provides quiet operation with low power consumption. The shear is initiated by a moveable foot switch. An oversized shield and toe kick plate are incorporated into the foot switch for added operator safety. The 10M14 is capable of 35 cutting strokes per minute. For increased speeds please consult factory. The powered back gauge consists of a mechanical stop, twin drive screws, gear motor, digital readout, and rotary encoder.
Benefits of the 10M14 powered shear are:
- Low power consumption
- Quiet operation
- Superior quality of cut
- Fast power back gauge
Roper Whitney’s 10M14 Mechanical Sheet Metal Shear are available in a “Pro Package” configuration. The Pro Package includes: a 4′ Left-Hand Squaring Arm with Right-Hand also available, slide-out Front Support Bar for even handling of varying material thicknesses, and Air Operated Sheet Support System. Pro “F” system is for front return. Pro “FC” features a moveable front return material cart. The material cart is the perfect add-on for moving large amounts or material from the shear to your Autobrake or anywhere else around the shop. The cart can easily be moved with one or more people on wheels and has forklift pockets for pallet jacks and lift trucks. 10M14 shears come standard with a full length front sheet support bar for even handling of varying material thicknesses.
Aluminum Shearing Applications
The 10M14 is capable of shearing a wide variety of aluminum. The machine has been tested with 5052-H32 aluminum at a thickness of 1/8″. Medium and high grade aluminums with similar brittleness characteristics (such as 5052-H32 and 6061-T6) will fracture in a like manner during the cut.
