Montreal, Quebec based Globe Metal recently purchased a brand new Kajman 1000 Alligator Shear. This new machine allows Globe Metal to shear stainless pipe and plate to produce foundry-grade cut plate prepared for any customer's specifications. It is also capable of producing any size of Ferro additives as per their customers' exacting requirements.
According to Gensco Equipment, the Toronto-based equipment supplier which worked with Globe Metal on the installation, the new Kajman 1000 Alligator Shear is known as the "Rolls Royce" of alligator shears. It has a blade length of approximately 40 inches (1,000 mm), a maximum opening of roughly 23 inches (580 mm), and a maximum force of 348 tonnes (3100 kN). Its cut profile is round and approximately 3.5 inches, with a 3-inch plate.
