Bradbury Receives Leveler and Laser Flat Trak® CL Testimonial

Centria Logo.png

Dickie Jones, Plant Operations Manager at Centria in Frankfort, KY, USA, had this to say about their Bradbury e-Drive® leveler with the Flat Trak® CL monitoring system:

“Our Auto Selective Hydraulic leveler from Bradbury is an awesome machine! By running in automatic mode and letting the leveler adjust itself, we achieve an in-house material flatness within ½ an I-Unit or less instead of the usual five to ten I-Units from outside sources. The steel and aluminum sheets from this machine are so flat you can’t physically find material issues. We now have zero problems feeding a production machine that requires sheet flatness to be within .004.”

 

The Flat Trak® CL Series measures, displays and makes automated adjustments to the leveler!

This system is accurate, intuitive and easy to operate.  All monitoring is performed before the material is sheared resulting in lower scrap output. Learn more about the Flat Track® CL monitoring system.

BY PSMJ RESOURCES, INC. – Right or wrong, many clients perceive architecture, engineering, and environmental consulting firms as equally technically competent.
