Shear Genius® SGe

Prima Power Shear Genius® is the world leading fabricating solution based on integrated punching and shearing, automatic loading and component exit.
  • Modular design = all automation is easy to retrofit also later on
  • More capacity, quality and cost-efficiency
  • Automated flexible fabrication
  • No skeletons, less punching scrap = savings in raw material
  • No nibble marks
  • Reduced manufacturing costs
  • Faster return on investment
  • Brush tables for low noise level and to maintain perfect sheet surface quality.
  • 30 tons punching force up to 8 mm = various end user solutions
  • Shearing saves punching tools = fewer hits, less wearing = faster production and part flow
  • One SGe cell = production of (average) three stand-alone machines = save floor space and manpower
  • Operations can be handled from one side = simple, efficient factory logistics
  • Average power consumption: 5 kW = less use of energy
  • Extremely high servo-electric punching and forming accuracy = less scrap, accurate forming
  • Fewer critical components compared with hydraulic machines = low maintenance costs
  • Robust ”O” type frame for perfect tool alignment = less wearing of punching tools
  • Full 3 m working area without repositioning = higher production volume and time savings
  • High material saving = 10 % (average) better sheet utilization compared with stand-alone machine
  • Max sheet size
    SGe6: 3,074 mm x 1,565 mm
    SGe8: 4,300 mm x 1,565 mm
  • Ram force: 300 kN (33 US Tons)
  • in turret / Max. index tools: 384 / 128
  • Hit speed, max.: 1,000 hpm
  • Positioning speed, max.: 150 m/min
  • Index tool rotation speed: 250 rpm

Servo-electric excellence in integrated punching and shearing

Shear Genius® models SGe6 and SGe8 provide more capacity, quality and cost efficiency for flexible sheet metal working than any other comparable system. Experience since 1987 and over 2200 delivered Shear Genius® units delivered around the world tells it all.

The vast majority of all fabricated sheet metal components are rectangular, so a highly economical method to produce them is to perform first punching and then shear the components loose in the same automatic process with an integrated right angle shear. Also, parts with two or three straight edges are perfect for fabrication with a right angle shear. The Shear Genius® philosophy is to provide one machine capable of transforming a full sized sheet into finished parts with scrap separated. These parts can be moved to final production stages without the need for secondary operations for costly material handling between loading, punching, shearing, sorting and unloading.

With Shear Genius® you can use pre-cut sheets, but normally standard size sheets are processed while major savings are achieved through efficient nesting. It is important not to think that this is the only way that Shear Genius® can be operated. When you need just a punching operation, Shear Genius® can be operated just as high-accuracy, high-performance turret punch press. Today, right angle shear technology is used throughout the industrial world in most varied applications, in independent production cells, or in central units within automatic material handling systems up to a factory-wide FMS level.
