The VTN CI Series - The Future Of Scrap & Demolition Shears

The new VTN CI-R series, re-designed specifically for heavy weight excavators, working in the processing of heavy duty metals and structures. VTN’s new series of CI-R scrap and demolition shear has now reached the highest levels in terms of performance. Built from the highest quality steel available, the aggressive shear frame represents the robustness and reliability of this new generation of scrap shear.

The jaw type and wide mouth opening have been designed for grabbing and cutting all-sizes of materials and thanks to a dedicated speed valve the CI-R shears optimise the cycle times. Whilst the piercing tip is made of one unique piece, the four-times replaceable blades will help end users save money on spare parts. The new jaw alignment guides together with the fixed jaw fulcrum pin grant for a very precise material cutting. The rotation system, with double bearings in row, consents to operators to gain a perfect positioning on the material to be processed helped also by the brake system inside the swinging motor.

VTN CI hydraulic scrap & demolition shears

These hydraulic shears can be fitted on all excavators from 2 to 110 tonnes.

The body is made from Hardox 400 that guarantees safety and reliability even in the most heavy-duty applications, with a rotating assembly that allows the equipment to remain in the correct position.

Fitted as standard with speed valve that reduces cycle times, blades with trapezoidal profile that improve the cutting line, and an innovative adjuster kit on the jaws to adjust slacks with no need for manual intervention, the CI hydraulic shear is extremely versatile and suitable for the most specific applications.
