The parts common to the two versions are the compact structure, the shearing head in GS500 fusion with downwards movement, the workbench fitted with conical slots for housing of the squares.
The conical form of the slots has been especially designed to give greater rigidity to the squares to guarantee greater precision. The maximum cutting capacity for fixed angle notching machines reaches a thickness of 8 mm with a cutting angle of 90°.
The most important characteristic is the patented automatic adjustment of the slack between the blades from 1 to 6 mm in thickness.
The cut may start from the tip or the base of the blades, and the auto-adjustment system between the upper and the lower blades allows simultaneous cutting of different thicknesses.
The AF/P series is prearranged for the mounting of the punch head. The shearing head is mounted on rigid columns to prevent load oscillation of the head during the punching phase.
However, during the notching phase the shearing head must be able to oscillate in the four directions to allow the auto-adjustment of the upper blades with respect to the lower ones.
For this purpose two locking levers are set to the rear of the machine with the function of blocking or unblocking the head depending on whether the machine is punching or notching.
