Conveying Equipment - Scrap Shear System
The Mellott Scrap Shear uses a simple low maintenance design to shear long pieces of lumber into short, easily handled lengths.
The scrap shear's standard configuration includes a 20' long vibrating infeed conveyor and a 20 hp hydraulic power unit.
The operator controls are located on the front of the shear and provide class 2 electrical protection.
Standard controls consist of emergency stop buttons located on the panel face and on each side, power on/off, manual operation for up and down, and an automatic mode which cycles up and down.
The hydraulic cylinder is a 6" bore double rod cylinder with an extend stroke adjustment.
The knife blade is alloy steel mounted in at 1 1/2" thick ram guided by machined Ryertex bars.
Mellott has an onsite engineering and design team capable of meeting your specific needs. We will consult and coordinate with you to provide the best options for your application. Main System Components SCRAP SHEAR:
