The PocketSHEAR® from PRECISION-HAYES
- What is a PocketSHEAR®?
A PocketSHEAR® is a "Specific-Use" device solely intended for cold-shearing PC Strand Tendons within the pocket after stressing
operations are complete and approved.
- How was it developed?
As early as 1978 the inventor participated in the development of the first "Cold-Shear" PC Strand Fabrication Line. By 1990, a need was
established for field cold-shearing and the PocketSHEAR® was developed. At that time the PocketSHEAR® was a
"center-hole" device and difficult to use in many applications. By 1997, an "Open-Throat" version was in development and subsequently offered at the
World of Concrete, Orlando, in January, 1998.
- Why do I need one?
The PocketSHEAR® accurately cuts PC Strand Tendons to meet building code requirements. Abrasive saws cannot reach into the pocket
formed at the live end of a PC Strand Tendon and the use of cutting torches is both dangerous and inconsistent. Also, many crews are achieving
around 600 - 800 cuts per day with one unit.
- How does it work?
The PocketSHEAR® is a hydraulic device designed with two cutting blades that act in a rotating fashion in order to cold-shear the PC
Strand Tendon at a certain dimension within the pocket. The PocketSHEAR® does not push, pull or otherwise affect the strand except
to cold-shear it.
- What size strand will a PocketSHEAR® cut?
The PocketSHEAR® comes in two sizes: 1/2" (Model # PSH05-O) and .6" (Model # PSH06-O)
- We also offer a longer .5" - 45 Degree Nose Piece Kit for use with 45 Degree Pocket Formers.
