API shear blades can make a difference in your production shearing operation. You’ll get optimum performance and extended blade life resulting in more tons per edge. You will also get higher productivity as machine downtime for blade changes is significantly reduced.
API shear blades are manufactured from the finest alloys to close tolerance quality control standards.
They are available in two material grades to suit individual shearing applications and are precisely heat treated to assure consistently uniform hardness.
A modified high carbon, high chrome alloy tool steel grade providing maximum cuts before dulling when shearing mild steel up to and including 1” thick. Also applicable for stainless steel up to and including ½” thick.
A quality shear blade material - Premium high carbon, high chrome tool steel. Gives maximum life before dulling on mechanical shears cutting mild steel up to and including ¼” thick. Also for hydraulic shears up to and including 3/8” mild steel capacity. Stainless steel cutting limited to 3/16” capacity.
