Metal Cutting Guillotine – Variable Rake


Metal Cutting Guillotine – Variable Rake

This metal cutting guillotine variable rake offers metalworkers a machine of European build quality, safety, reliability, with many equipment features / options.

The RICO HGR hydraulic guillotine, is a heavy mono block welded construction, manufactured from certified steel 275 grade, with a ‘vertical cutting’ action, the top guillotine blade beam is supported at its rear with a series of roller bearings, these roller bearings control beam cutting deflection during the guillotine action, giving a good straight cut edge,  not a bowed cut edge.

The top blade steel shear beam is mounted on spherical bearings, with a hydraulic cylinder at each end to adjust
the rake angle. The RICO metal cutting guillotine variable rake, offers choice of a variable rake angles of between to ,
a flatter rake angle reduces the curl of the cut work piece.

‘UK manufactured’ quality cutting guillotine blades, 2 cutting edges on top blade, 4 cutting edges on bottom blade
