Heidtman Steel Products, Inc. and The Bradbury Co., Inc. are pleased to announce Heidtman Steel has purchased two 17-Roll Bradbury Auto-Selective™ Hydraulic Levelers. Each will be installed in Heidtman’s existing push/pull pickling lines in Butler, IN, and in Granite City, IL. Both will have the capability of leveling 0.250” down to 0.050” material thickness and feature state-of-the-art automation, including Bradbury’s Patented e•Drive® Technology.
This technology exhibits significantly enhanced leveling capabilities from conventional levelers with its regenerative technology, focused tension, and penetration. Both Levelers will have the latest operator controls available from Bradbury and provide automated setup via Bradbury TSC™ HMI. The benefits of this system are enhanced leveling capability where the internal stresses are equalized, and the Bradbury Patented e•Drive® Technology reduces energy waste which makes the e•Drive® eco-friendly as well as a low cost leveling system.
