Keeping Your Hydraulic Shearing Machine Running Properly

December 09, 2014 Keeping Your Hydraulic Shearing Machine Running Properly


Hydraulic shearing machines have been used in industrial applications for many years. These machines can cut and shear many different types of steel of various sizes with ease and accuracy. There are three different types of these machines that are used around the world. These types include the shock cut, the flat shearing machine, and the roller shearing machine. Another type of industrial machine that are for cutting metal is the hydraulic guillotine shearing machine. These machines are operated via a foot pedal or a button that moves the upper blade. The lower blades in these machines are often always fixed. These machines can be complex and keeping them running smoothly will take some planning and a preventive maintenance plan is necessary.


Keeping Your Hydraulic Shearing Machine Running Smoothly

  • Always make sure that you operate your machine according to the manufacturer’s specifications. By not following these guidelines you could damage your hydraulic cutter and void any warranty that it may have.
  • Inspect all electrical parts including relays, wires, buttons and fuses. But make sure to DE energize the power panel before going inside. Always wear protective gear when dealing with electrical components.
  • Check all safety switches, cages, and limits to make sure your machine is safe to use.
  • Make sure to grease all appropriate fittings and oil moving parts that require lubrication.
  • Repair and replace all belts including V belts and timing chains that show signs of wear.
  • Check the oil levels inside the motor bearing and make sure to use waterfront oil.
