Modular shears are ideal for small and mid-size scrap facilities where flexibility, low operating costs, ease-of-maintenance and durability are required. In addition to shearing, these machines press and cut the metal to a compact size for easier transport and storing. Metso’s modular shears are known as N-Series Modular Shear / Baler / Logger (NMS). They are available as stationary, portable, mobile, and track versions.

Flexible

Designed for a wide range of applications ­­ – shearing, baling and logging.

Durable

Based on decades of engineering expertise and made from quality components.

Efficient

Replaceable liners, high-efficiency hydraulics, and on-line diagnostics.
