Shearing

Shearing sheet metal and plate steel is performed in most of Alro’s steel warehouses. We’ll shear your order to your exact specifications, place your material on a skid for safe transporting and safe handling after your order is delivered to your specified location.

We are capable of shearing plate up to 1/2" thick. Thickness capacities vary depending on the grade of the material. Please inquire.
