Eldred Sheet Metal Works



Metal Shearing

Metal shearingEldred Sheet Metal Works offers metal shearing services. Eldred has the capabilities to shear material from 16 Ga. (.0625”) up to ¾” in carbon steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, and alloys. Shearing is a process where a moving blade bypasses a stationary blade causing the material to yield or shear. The result is material with an extremely straight cut and a slightly burred edge. Almost any geometrical shape can be achieved as long it is a straight cut. Eldred has two shears: one that shears material up to ¼” thick and the other that can shear material up to ¾” thick.* Eldred also has two ironworkers: one 150 ton and one 60 ton. Our 150 ton ironworker is capable of shearing angle, flat bar, square bar and round bar stock.

At Eldred we shear sheet and plate to specified sizes for many customers. We also shear sheet and plate for components used in the fabrication of weldments and assemblies. Eldred can also shear flat bar and round bar. Angles can be sheared but only to length. Some items that are sheared include:

  • Angles
  • Channels
  • Flat Bar
  • Footings
  • Gussets
  • Panel Covers
  • Plate
  • Sheet
  • Square Bar
  • Structural Supports

*Material thickness, tensile strength, and chemistry greatly affect the width at which material can be sheared. Send Eldred your request for quote for review and let us determine if it is within our equipment capabilities.

When you partner with Eldred you can be assured your project will be of the best quality. Our desire is to provide you with personal attention, better quality, and excellent service!
