Shear Control

Shear Control is a module within GEVA Mill Control for:

     - Start / Stop-Shears,
     - Cludge / Brake Shears,
     - Cut & Divert Shears (Start/Stop or Cludge/Brake)

Supporting all types of shear configuration, e. g. single arm, double arm, drum, crank, combined. For all shears, diverters with pneumatic, hydraulic or electric actuators are supported on entry and exit side.

The key features of Shear Control are:

     - Extremely high cutting repeatability
     - Improved wear of blades and reduced risk of braking
     - Extremely high cutting accuracy
     - The shear knife linear movement is synchronous with material movement
     - Drifting delays don’t cause cut length variation
     - Entry and/or Exit Diverter movements are synchronized with shear movement.
     - Length of material is consistent, independent from changes in rolling temperature
     - No significant speed drop during cut, Only minimum over speed required
     - Cooling Bed Length Optimization
     - Length Optimization - Tail Chop
     - Length Optimization - Short Length Redistribution
