HYDRAULIC SHEAR CAPACITY CHART - PDF Printable

This chart must only be used as a guide, as there may be variations of grade and quality in material.  This chart would assume the shear is in good working condition with sharp blades using the proper shear blade clearance and rake angle.  The chart is based on 80,000 psi tensile material.   Metal shearing on machines like: Accurshear, Amada, Pacific and Standard shears. 

Material that is full of stress, buckled sheets, second stock or rerun steel can not be accurately rated or sheared as first quality material.  Two important variables related to shear load are the shear strength of the material and the depth of penetration.  This means some alloys such as soft aluminum require a greater shear load because the blade must penetrate the material further before the fracture occures.
