With simple machines, the movable blade that cuts the profiles is manually operated using a hand lever. The movements of industrial machines are usually operated hydraulically or pneumatically. Additionally, the workpiece is clamped in during the cutting process to ensure that it does not slip. There are matrices for each of the individual profiles that take up the exact form of the material on the fixed blade. The Steel Profile Shears is often a combined hole and profile punch, enabling it to punch holes into the profile when required. A notching tool, used to produced notches and chop steel, is also available. The tools of both the hole and profile punch and the notching tool can be easily switched in order to be able to produce various forms. The whole machine is mounted onto a relatively heavy machine body, which ensures stability. A strong drive, which is hydraulically operated, creates the necessary power required for the shears.
