Run non stop production on your insulated metal panel line

Posted by Rachel Grilliot on Jul 15, 2020 10:58:19 AM

The Bradbury Coil Joining Unit Keeps Your IMP Production Running

A continuous sandwich panel line needs to run production non-stop even during a coil change. If a continuous line stops during production, it can result in several meters of scrap panel and wasted time. By utilizing a Bradbury automated coil joining unit and four uncoilers, a Bradbury continuous insulated metal panel line automatically joins coils together for uninterrupted manufacturing of panels.

How does the coil joining process work?  As the coil in process is depleted, the new coil is fed directly to the trail end of the leading coil.

Embosser Receives Service Testimonial

Posted by Matt Werner on Jul 23, 2015 11:35:00 AM

The Bradbury Co., Inc. received a new testimonial from Green Span Profiles Insulated Panel Technologies.

Kelly Ginn stated, "Embossing is a critical component of our insulated building panel production line. When our rolls and machines were not functioning properly, we enlisted Alliance to diagnose and fix the problem. They ended up doing a major redesign and rebuild which included an extended period of on-site work. I found them to be hard working, knowledgeable, experienced and willing to go the extra mile to keep my line running. When we're ready for additional embosser work or new machinery, I will go to Alliance because they know and understand embossing, engraving, and machine design."
