The shearing methods of expanded metal
When you want the expanded metal, you have to consider the shearing method of expanded metal. Today I will discuss the details about it, please check the following :
1. SIDE SHEARING
The process of cutting a piece ofexpanded metal parallel to the long dimension of the diamond.
1)Random Side Shearing
Side shearing is a cut made parallel to the LWD dimension of the sheet, which usually leaves open diamonds.
2)Bond Side Shearing
This cut is made along the length of the sheet on the center line of the bond over the specified width. In most cases, it is not practical to attempt to Bond Side Shear either regular or flattened expanded metalbecause of camber.
2. END SHEARING
The process of cutting a piece of expanded metal parallel to the short way of the diamond.
1)End Random Shearing
- The process of shearing a piece of expanded metal to a specified length (LWD). This cut normally leaves open diamonds at both ends.
2)End Bond Shearing
- The process of shearing a piece of expanded metal to a specified length (LWD). One end is cut on the Bond parallel to the SWD, the other end usually has open diamonds.
NOTE: When end bond shearing is requested for both ends of flat expanded metal, the sheet is sheared at the center line of the bond over the specified length. It is possible to end bond shear, but extraordinary care must be exercised to maintain the squareness of the sheet.
Finally,I have attached a picture for your reference.
