Bradbury Announces New Flat Trak® CL

Posted by Rachel Grilliot on Aug 21, 2017 2:07:42 PM

Bradbury hydraulic leveling technology continues to lead the industry in innovation and ease of operation. The new Bradbury Flat Trak® CL monitoring system is accurate, intuitive, and easy to operate. Monitoring the material flatness is performed prior to the material being sheared which greatly reduces the amount of scrap material produced.

The system incorporates a laser measurement system to acquire an accurate surface shape. The laser view of the material is shown in real time and displayed on the operator screen in the form of a three-dimensional topographical view.  Material shape is measured in I-Units so verification of flatness is achieved per ASTM A568.
