Laminoirs des Landes, a steel plate producer, has chosen Danieli for the supply of a new hydraulic hot shear to be installed in Tarnos, France.

According to Danieli, the selected shear will allow the company to cut hot plates (600-900 °C) into a wide range of thicknesses up to 50 mm and widths up to 3,500 mm.

The Italian plant builder claims that the knife-angle and knife-gap adjustment systems, enables the machine to offer the same optimal performances when cutting thick and thin products.

Danieli hydraulic shears, it is claimed, 'are a smart solution to reduce CapEx in comparison to the common electromechanical rocking-type shear'.

The new shear will be operational in early 2020.
