Mechanical Cold Shears CADDY Series

The CADDY horizontal mechanical shears have distinguished themselves throughout the world due to their extreme high productivity and corresponding low cost per slug. The horizontal shearing action allows easy clearance compensated angle shearing to virtually eliminate shear face angularity. The CADDY produces the highest dimensional accuracy possible to fully utilize today's net and near net forging technologies.

The ability to adjust the shearing plane to eliminate shear face angularity makes the CADDY well suited to shear even low tensile strength materials.

  • The horizontal slide engagement eliminates the need for a special foundation.
  • Quick blade clearance adjustments and 15 minute blade changes makes even short production runs practical.
  • Hydraulic clutch for high performance, long life and noise reduction (Model CADDY 52 and larger).
  • Low maintenance cost

Hydraulic Hot Shears CTCH Series

Hot Shears CTCH Series

Ficep is, by far, the world's leading manufacturer of fully automated hot shear lines. The Ficep CTCH series are able to shear slugs at forging temperature next to the forge press. From bar stock to finish forging, all controlled by the press operator. The Ficep Hot Shear ensures the best return on investment due to:

  • Elimination of unnecessary material handling.
  • Elimination of sheared parts storage.
  • The ability to make immediate volume adjustments to compensate for forge tool wear.
  • Lowers the ultimate material cost required.
  • Reduces scrap.
  • Allows the shearing of cold shear crack sensitive materials.
  • Inline process reduces the relative energy cost.
  • Consolidation of operations reduces the labor cost.
