Genesis GXP shears given jaw protection
By Lindsay Gale11 April 2011
Genesis has introduced a weld on protective jaw system for its GXP shears, Shear Jaw Armour, designed to fit both a shear's lower and upper jaws as well as the chin. It is a modular system fabricated from abrasion resistant, proprietary GenGuard steel that once in place virtually eliminates the need for build-up and hardsurfacing of the shear's wear areas.
According to the company, the system should last up to a year in typical recycling applications, saving annual welding, labour and material costs and increasing up-time and productivity.
