Coe Scrap Chopper

Coe offers heavy duty hydraulic and pneumatic shears and scrap choppers for cut-to-length and scrap chopping progressive die applications. These shears are custom designed to suit specific application needs. They are available to cut mild steel and other metals at widths ranging from 24” to 84” at material thickness to up to .250”. Hydraulic designs are used for heavier gauge applications while pneumatic designs permit affordability. Stock cutters/choppers are electrically actuated and timed to the press or machine cycle by a rotary limit switch, programmable limit switch, or similar device. The cutters can be fitted with a proximity switch to indicate when a cut has been completed. Chopping the skeleton from a progressive die operation reduces material to manageable form and reduced volume so that it can be sold a premium scrap prices.
