Shearing machines are used for textile finishing. Here the feel and brilliance of the surface finish must be optimized. Web guiding keeps the web in the correct position and our metal detectors protect the very expensive shearing blades against damage. The wider the web is, the more appropriate it is to use a segmented metal detector. This device indicates to the operator any metal particles within a range of 300 mm. A seam detector detects the seam in good time so that the shearing table can be withdrawn.
