When it comes to bar stock shears there are a couple of requirements that are universal. Things like dependability, ease of use, and clean cuts are necessary when you are cutting parts for bolts, forging, rebar, and similar items. Other things, like an automated system, are not as necessary for the overall effectiveness of the machine. Finding the right bar stock shears for any given application requires a working knowledge of the applications requirements. MSI, however, carries two different hydraulic bar shears that are suitable for most round bar applications.
