Crop Shears

Advanced System Features for Successful Crop Shear Upgrades:

  • Cost-Effective Crop Shear Upgrade Solutions-Choice of New or Retrofit
  • Increase Production with Nidec-Avtron Crop Shear Control
  • Peak Shearing Efficiency through Advanced Diagnostics

More Accurate Shear Cuts with Better Speed Coordination

Nidec-Avtron's Crop Shear Drive has the IEEE444 overload and duty cycle rating required to successfully accelerate the shear to match the strip speed. This means less scrap and a cleaner cut.

Low Project Risk with an Experienced Automation Partner

Nidec-Avtron Crop Shear drive systems use proven hardware, software and system architecture. Our systems are designed by experienced engineering and service team with a long track record of on-time, on-budget project execution.

Cutting-Edge Diagnostics Ensure Improved Shear Availability

Our Crop Shear Drives include an on-board high-speed signal analyzer that can be used to troubleshoot hard-to-find problems. System-level diagnostics are also provided by an Avtron Performance View Process Diagnostic System. These on-site systems are backed up by remote diagnostics from the Nidec-Avtron Service Team.

Avtron SMARTach Diagnostic Encoders Reduce Downtime

Our SMARTachs have on-board self-repair and diagnostics, including a Red/Green LED to show the encoder status. The LED eliminates encoder change-out when the encoder is OK, saving unwarranted downtime.
