PHONE FOR DETAILS 01737 371234:
In order to protect the knife gear-box and various other aspects of the Knife drive
train from damage due to over-loading, a number of machines are fitted with an
overload safety device termed a - Shear Bolt.
The guillotine manufacturer calculates the "Shearing Force" required to fracture the
Shear Bolt(s), and in this way the guillotine is protected from severe damage during
an overload, as the Shear bolt will snap, effectively disconnecting the mechanical
drive to the Knife Beam.
It is therefore very important to the safety of the operator and the machine that only
the correct Shear Bolt is used for a particular machine, a Shear Bolt should never
be replaced with and ordinary high speed steel Bolt.
Shear bolts and nuts are available from stocks to suit the following guillotines:
