One of the best shearing machine manufacturers we've experienced is Manyo Co. Ltd from Osaka Japan. Their machines have
impressive production capacities and quality. The LBS 300 and LBS 450 shear machines (lever press) exhibit high precision,
automation, quick change over tooling, and speed. Manyo is a fantastic machine system that performs very difficult tasks well.
Our Manyo experience includes working with two Manyo DLB 100 shear presses. Those machines ran continuously for over a
decade without any trouble. After a full evaluation we found that a few semi-perishable tools needed changed or reworked.
The machine base and non-perishable tooling was unaltered and needed no attention of any kind. The semi-perishable tools were
replaced as the machine design allowed and production continued.
As the production team surpassed the machine learning curve the weakest point of the shear system became the shear blades.
Manyo has developed a detailed system for bar shearing, but there was still room for improvement in the shear blades. We worked
in design changes to production tooling that resulted in a complete specification for all the individual shearing requirements
of different bars. We increased: capacity, up-time, quality, and through-put.
There are other shear manufactures like Ficep, Erie Press, Fenn Power, Gami, Bemcor, and Schubert Maschinen with which
we have direct experience or have researched in the process of machinery recommendation for purchasing.
