Duggan Profiles and Steel Service Center: QTR Purlin Rollformers

Posted by Matt Werner on Dec 18, 2017 9:30:00 AM

 

The Bradbury Co., Inc. received a testimonial from a valued customer, Duggan Profiles &Steel Service Center Ltd..  

"When we were looking to purchase a new purlin line, our main objectives were to produce a quality roll-formed product from Sigma to Cee sections facilitating all punching and notching details that our customers require; to have a flexible line that would enable us to reduce lead time from order time to delivery time; to link our production line to the customer’s CAD software therefore reducing large amounts of repetitive administration and errors that can be associated with double-entry of orders; and to have the capacity to roll high grade steel from 1.2 mm to 3.2 mm material thickness.

MBCI Testimony: QTR™ & Bardie Cartridge™

Posted by Matt Werner on Nov 14, 2017 9:25:00 AM

 

The Bradbury Co., Inc. received a testimonial from a valued customer, MBCI.  

 

"Our objective with the QTR™ was to make our changeovers quicker. MBCI went with the Bardie Cartridge™ Adjustment on each of the rollforming stands. This allowed operators to change material thickness without having to adjust the rolltooling manually. As the thicker material enters into each roll station, the compressed Bardie Cartridge™ allows the material to feed through with the correct form. The Bardie Cartridge™ is accurate and repeatable. The rollformer comes with an easy calibration tool which is incorporated as part of the preventative maintenance schedule to check twice every year.
