After decoiling and slitting comes shearing. The material that has been decoiled and slitted is then automatically cut to the required length as a final step. MD3 has various sheet metal sheers called hydraulic shears of guillotines. Decoiling, slitting and shearing allow MD3 to prepare either square of rectangular pieces of metal. These pieces can then be used for deep drawing rectangular or square forms. MD3 can also use then to make discs or blanks that can then be spun to make items such as lampshades.
