Air-Operated Sheet Support System Available as F (front) or R (rear)
Shown is F option
The MSE Series is based on our popular LM model shears. Standard features include a 30-inch front-operated 2x back gauge system and 4-edge high carbon/high chromium (HCHC) blades and precision bearings. The MSE616 is available as a standard model or in our popular “Performance Package” configuration which includes a 5′ squaring arm, a pair of front support arms, and an air operated sheet support is available in two styles:
- System R drops the supported material to the rear of the machine.
- System F returns the supported material to the front of the machine via a front return chute.

The optional sheet support system is recommended for gauging of thin material. With this air-powered support mechanism, one operator can effectively shear cumbersome, light-gauge stock. The sheet support system is available in two styles: System F, available on models LM1014 and LM1214, is a front return support which drops sheared parts to a front chute for easy retrieval; and support System R which drops sheared material to the rear of the machine. Unlike competitive front return systems, with the LM Series Performance Package F, you can cut materials longer than the standard back gauge length by deactivating the sheet support.
With the combination of the optional digital readout for 2x back gauge system, the operator adds both speed and great accuracy to the job. The optional digital display shows measurements in 0.001” increments. Longer travel ranges are available by request.
The optional five-foot squaring arm is a precision gauge, which can be mounted left or right and has inlaid inch/metric scaling and adjustable guide block. Also available in ten and twelve-foot lengths. A toggle on the block lets sheet stock slide underneath, then pivots to the stop position.
The optional Go-To back gauge system features a twin ball screw design which provides accuracy and repeatability. The standard travel range is 30-inches, longer travels are available. The back gauge is powered by a 3/4–hp gear motor and operated by a Go-To control system. Models LM1010 and LM1210 are standard with this system.
Independent, spring-loaded, self-leveling holddowns exert uniform pressure on a work piece, ensuring an accurate cut. The plungers have neoprene inserts to prevent marring the surface of the piece.
