Model Numbers CPL-1 and CPL-2 are powerful, cost effective, shears which have the ability to accurately cut PCB laminates, plastics, photo polymer plates up to 2.00mm thick and aluminium up to 1.5mm. 

An important feature of these shears is safety. Free access to the cutting area is prevented by heavy Perspex shielding extending along both sides of the blade. A safety latch is fitted to the pivot to prevent operation without it first being released. For positional accuracy the cutting bed is fitted with a rule which is recessed to assist in securing the PCB or sheeting whilst cutting is in progress.


The CPL-1 has a cutting capacity of 203mm (8") and is extremely compact with an overall height of only 575mm and a footprint of 335 X 140mm. It has a cutting bed of 110mm wide from the blade although wider material can be cut.

The CPL-2 will cut materials up to 305mm (12") and has a height of 670mm and a footprint of 440 x 245mm. It has a larger cutting bed 225mm wide from the blade although once again wider material can be cut.


Model Number CPL-3 is a bench top shears suitable for cutting printed circuit board laminates, thin metal sheet, sublimation metal, aluminium (1.5/2.0mm) or plastic labels / front panel materials.


On lowering the operating handle, a spring loaded clamp is activated which holds the material securely during cutting, thus enabling cuts to be made with a mini-mum of effort.


These shears are composed of an epoxy powder coated cast aluminium frame fitted with hardened and ground steel blades.


The machine has a clear acrylic front safety guard to protect the operator, whilst at the same time making it possible to see the blades so that the material to be cut can be aligned accurately.


The Model CPL-3 has an 18" cutting capacity and has both imperial and metric edge scales.

Corner Rounder The material to be rounded is slid from the left or right hand side positively into the stops, to leave an overhang which is sheared through by the punch to leave a clean corner of either 1/4″ (6.35mm) 3/8″(9.5mm) radius.


It should be noted that material originally cut out of square will result in an unbalanced round being removed.


The table support column is mounted on a 5" X 5" steel plate with screw holes for bench fixing, although this will probably be unnecessary for most users. Overall height with handle upright 8" (205mm) and weight 1.2Kg.
