The Bradbury Group introduces a 60” X .070” cut to length line featuring a Bradbury e•Drive® leveler and an Athader rotary shear operating at 300 FPM eliminating the need for a looping pit.  The line was also equipped with a recoiler giving the ability to rework secondary coils into leveled prime coils. Athader joined The Bradbury Group in 2012 which brought the latest technologically automated coil processing lines including: slitting lines, cut-to-length lines, packaging and strapping lines to enhance Bradbury’s offering of metal processing equipment.
