Need to handle thinner parts or lift to shear? The M20AY ASC utilizes patented shallow field technology to enable de-stacking of thin sheets. The advanced field pattern increases shear performance over single unit tools. This tool is only for use on flat areas. For AY series, Shallow field technology works on thinner materials such as sheet metal and stamped parts that have flat picking surface large enough for the entire unit.
