Sheet Metal Guillotine

This was designed for a machine design unit.

Requirements were to cut 3 mm mild steel sheet, up to 2400 mm wide, and be powered by one hydraulic cylinder while still maintaining a straight & level cut.

Several iterations led to a design that could be CNC machined from one single 20 x 1800 x 6000 plate, with a few extra small parts.
