Plate Shearing:Ferritic Stainless Steel:Ferritic Stainless steels such as 405, 430, 439, 430F, 442 and 446 do not lend themselves to shearing over ¼ in thickness. Shearing Ferritic stainless steel may result in stress fractures beyond the sheared edge of the cut part. Shearing Metal SupermarketsProcess. Shearing involves the cutting of sheet and plate with high precision. Shears have a top and bottom blade and this process is very similar to cutting a piece of paper with scissors. Shears use blades made of high-carbon steel, which is extremely hard and allows the shear to cut through a variety of metals.
Benefits of the shearing process include the ability to cut small lengths of material at any time since the metal shearing blades can be mounted at an angle to reduce the required shearing force.
