A Guillotine, sometimes referred to as a Shearing Machine, cuts various types of sheet metal and heavy steel sheets for fabrication.

To use it, a steel sheet is clamped into the guillotine under the top cutting beam by means of hold downs and then by pressing the foot pedal which activates the top blade, the top beam moves down to cut through the sheet. This works like a pair of scissors as it presses past the bottom blade fixed to the machine. This is known as shearing.

There are two types of Guillotines – hydraulic and mechanical, both of which perform the same task, mechanical however cuts sheet metal quicker than hydraulic but both types of Guillotines cut accurately
