Demolition shears

Italy’s leading manufacturer of mobile scrap shears to process ferrous metals, aluminium and other non-ferrous metals

For more than twenty years we have manufactured highly-efficient mobile scrap shears to effectively cut ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Cayman demolition shears efficiently reduce the size of steel and aluminium bars, profiles and downsize bulky scrap.

Our mobile scrap shears are ideal for processing:

Ferrous rods, bars and I-beams

Voluminous, bulky and oversized scrap

Aluminium scrap, bars and profiles

End of life ships and aeroplanes

Train rail and tramway lines

Zato’s demolition shears for unparalleled results

The exceptional cutting force of our demolition attachments are due to the combined effect of high performance cutting blades, reliable gearboxes and a robust torsion free main body made from the finest steel. Depending on the material you need to process, Zato has the right sized shear to suet your excavator. We manufacture a series of demolition shears specifically suited to the job requirements. With 8 different models of Cayman mobile scrap shears to choose from, you can be sure that we have the right shear in the correct size and weight in order to satisfy even the most specific production requirements.

Extremely powerful cutting performance

The wide jaw opening of our Cayman demolition shears guarantees high cutting performance while a large discharge area on the non-cutting side of the mobile jaw ensures quick discharge rates without blocking. Cayman mobile scrap shears are also equipped with a sturdy large-bore hydraulic main cylinder and a central pin designed to be especially resistant to thrust damage. The extremely high durability of the central pin is due to a specific production procedure known as ‘cryogenic shrink fitting’ where the pin is cooled down using liquid nitrogen before inserting in to the housing. The gradual warming back to room temperature creates a perfect fit in the pin housing for better durability and reliability.

Mobile rail shears and rail cutting attachments

The Cayman RB (Rail Breaker) series of shears and rail cutting attachments are specifically designed to quickly and efficiently cut all kinds of rail. Due to the high rebound shock involved in cutting train track rails, the shear needs to be built extra robustly. Our years of experience coupled with feedback from our many international customers have led us to design and build the perfect shear to reliably cut rail road tracks and tram rails down to a manageable size.
