High Speed Flying Shears
Alpha® Flying Shears utilise a patented double cut die set which enables producers to cut dimple free, ready for market products directly off the mill.
Tube materials which can be cut include mild steel, high tensile carbon steels, boron steel, austenitic and ferritic stainless steel, aluminium, brass and copper.
The Thermatool Alpha® High-Speed Flying Shears, offer tube and pipe producers the worlds fastest and most accurate cut-off system.
Thermatools Alpha® Flying Shear Systems fully optimise the cutting process enabling cut-to-length tubing to be produced dimple free, with minimum burr, to a cut-off accuracy of ±1mm and at cycle rates of up to 240m/min. Furthermore, Alpha® Flying Shears help to reduce the number of steps required in the tube manufacturing process, enabling the producer to cut-to-length on the mill ensuring the lowest processing costs.
For over sixty years, the name “Alpha” has meant high-performance tube cutting. More ready-to-ship tube has been cut using Alpha® double cut technology than any other type of cutoff. Today, we continue to push the boundaries of technology and innovation to produce the new generation of high-performance Alpha® flying shears.
Considerable research and development has resulted in our highest performance shears, providing even higher reliability, faster line speeds, closer tolerances and increased tooling life. These advantages, coupled with reduced footprints, automatic lubrication and quick-change tooling, make the Alpha® shear the most reliable, high-speed cutoff available.
Today, Alpha® flying shears are cutting low and high tensile carbon steels, boron steel, austenitic and ferritic stainless steels, aluminium, brass and copper products on tube mills worldwide. Our experienced service engineers are trained to support our complete range of cutoffs – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. Equipment service and operator training ensures easy access to assistance for all customers.
With unparalleled experience coupled with equipment built to last the life of the mill, means you are guaranteed increased yield.
