SAFAN B-Shear In
SAFAN® M-Shear with its very complete equipment and multifaceted options, Safan offers the SAFAN® B-Shear, available in one standard model. The SAFAN® B-Shear
provides the same high-grade quality and functionality as the SAFAN® M-Shear. At its core is the advanced hybrid

drive for the cutting beam. In addition, the SAFAN® B-Shear offers a series of innovative extras, such as a programmable starting position
For many decades now, SAFAN has led the development and innovation in automated sheet-metal

edges, on both the top and bottom. They enable you to shear in a very economical manner for several reasons, including the fact that blade wear is spread over the
blade’s entire length. Thanks to the programmable starting position of the cutting beam, short shearing work can also be done on the right side of the shear.
The standard pneumatic sheet support system makes cutting a little easier, especially when dealing with larger sheet sizes. The
sheets to be cut are supported on the back
of the shear, ensuring that they can be easily positioned against the backgauge.
