The Bradbury Group offers quality roll forming equipment to manufacturers with different manufacturing needs and production levels. Machines can be designed for startup companies, mid-sized production companies, and some of the highest volume level manufacturers that often need more throughput and automation.
Customers have multiple models to choose from: Single High, Double High®, Rafted®, Double Wide and even Double-High Double-Wide mills for a choice of 4 profiles at the push of a button. Precut, post cut, flying shears or stop to cut roll forming lines are options from the Bradbury Group to fit all investments levels and production requirements. Bradbury Group lines can also incorporate notching, punching, in-line sealant, and swaging in a complete “on-the-fly” system. The Double High® roll former features upper and lower pass lines of tooling that can be individually fed to form different profiles by raising or lowering an entry conveyor. Bradbury Rafted® roll formers have stands, shafts, and tooling mounted on removable subplates so that complete sets of tooling can be easily exchanged. The flying BOSS™ Shear supplies accuracy of +/- 1/16" and throughput speeds up to 300 FPM to complement all of Bradbury’s high-performance panel lines. Stacking options can be fitted to these line configurations to end justify panels or pyramid stack if required.
All Bradbury Group machines come with Beck Automation Controls from Beck Automation, also a Bradbury Group company. Beck Automation offers software packages that can connect office to the shop to manage orders and production. Dashboards and KPI screens can be displayed for management and operators to view real time performance and production trends.
