Metal Shears and Nibblers

Metal Shears and Nibblers

Shears and nibblers are used in many fabrication shops and can cut plate materials such as mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminium, however cutting capacities vary with each machine. Shears cut from the edge of the workpiece with a scissor action that can cause some distortion. Nibblers cut as their name suggests, creating virtually no distortion of the workpiece and can be used for cutting out shapes in the middle of the workpiece once a pilot hole has been drilled larger than the diameter of the die holder.
