The ammount of work to be done in cutting 30mm diameter holes in 15mm thick plate is 8J/mm2 of the sheared area. The actual piercing operation takes 2s. The total frictional losses over a cycle are equivalent to one sixth of the work done during a single piercing operation. The machine shaft is driven by a constant poer electric motor.
