Definition

Shear cutting is the separation of workpieces by two blades moving in opposite directions past each other (DIN 8588 2013).

Theory and Application

Basics

The shear cutting processes are part of the separation manufacturing processes, standardized in (DIN 8580 2003) and more precisely characterized in (DIN 8588 2013) as the mechanical separation of workpieces without forming shapeless matter. Here, shapeless matter refers to chips or grinding dust, for example. Some parts manufactured by shear cutting are displayed in Fig. 1.
