Pandrol’s Weld Shear Hand Pump (EPM2) is a manual shearing machine designed to shear off excess metal after aluminothermic welding.
Excess metal remaining above the rail head during welding was traditionally removed manually with a hammer and chisel. The Weld Shear Hand Pump automates this process and reduces the risk of damaging the rail.
The shear is operated by a manual lever and fitted with a hydraulic pump. As a result, it is lighter and simpler to use than other shearing machines.
