An Ironworker is the amalgamation of 5 machines clubbed into a single engineering wonder, forming the backbone of many fabrication workshops. An Ironworker comprises of a punching machine, a plate shear, a section shear, a punch and shear machine and a coper-notcher.
Generating force using hydraulic systems or mechanical leverage, Ironworker machines can shear, punch holes and notch in steel plates.
