Rapid, Precise Sheet Metal Shearing
To produce precision sheet metal, shearing is essential to creating high-quality parts and products. Sheet metal comes in many sizes (36″-60″ wide x 96″-144″ long). These sheets need to be cut into smaller pieces (blanks) depending on the size of the produced parts. Our shearing process involves securing a piece of sheet metal between a shearing machine’s top and bottom blades. As the top blade slices through the sheet metal, the material is also pressed onto a lower blade. Excess material is cleanly cut away from the metal part, creating a smooth and highly functional finished piece.
Finally, a highly experienced team of GTR Manufacturing technicians cut the material into blanks or prepare it to be punched or laser cut by our world-class equipment. Since high-quality sheet metal shearing is part of our end-to-end precision sheet metal fabrication capabilities, our customers never face unexpected costs or delays.

Engineering & Design Support
GTR Manufacturing’s experienced engineering department can provide concepts, design changes, product enhancements, and reverse engineering. We will work with your team to deliver your parts at competitive costs.
Our sales, management, and engineering teams have experience in a wide range of industries and understand their changing needs. We work in close partnership with our clients in developing and refining product designs and production process planning to simplify manufacturing and create cost savings for your end product.
We have the capability to import and unfold your 3D models ( .dwg, .step, .iges, .sldasm, .ldprt, .dxf) built in Solid Works, Pro/E, and other modeling software. The model is unfolded and downloaded directly into the CAM process, reducing errors and assisting in short lead times for your sheet metal parts.
JIT / KANBAN
By using the Just-In-Time (JIT) inventory strategy, GTR Manufacturing schedules production to meet your ordering needs. We reduce costs by carrying less idle inventory, resulting in a quality product that is delivered on time at a lower price.
We pair JIT with the Kanban technique to manage our highly-efficient development process. We establish minimum and maximum quantities, fulfilling customer needs on a pull system. This method empowers us to reduce inventory for customers and suppliers and uses lean production practices. In addition, we have full insight into your pipeline through an online portal, ensuring it’s always full.
Is GTR’s Sheet Metal Shearing Service Right For Your Next Project?
With 50+ years of experience assisting customers with diverse fabrication projects, from small and simple to large and complex, GTR creates sheared strips, blanks, or planks in a variety of materials and thicknesses, depending on the unique needs of each project.
When it comes to products of a larger size, we’ve found a smarter approach to the shearing step. We order pre-cut material in blanks to eliminate the need for the shearing process entirely. This expedites the timeline of our customers’ projects, allowing us to get your order out in record time.
Our end-to-end precision sheet metal fabrication capabilities speed up project timelines by lowering the risk associated with relying on external supply chains and allow us to have complete oversight and control over the entire production process—ensuring uncompromising quality.
We haven’t built a semi-centennial (50-year-old) business by just making parts alone; our success is equally measured by the trust our clients continually place in us generation after generation.
