Bradbury Co., Inc., Moundridge, Kan., has expanded its hydraulic leveling technology offerings with the introduction of the Flat Trak CL monitoring system. The system is accurate, intuitive and easy to operate, the company claims.
With Flat Trak, monitoring the material flatness is performed prior to the material being sheared. The goal is to generate less scrap material. The system incorporates a laser measurement system to acquire an accurate surface shape profile. Happening 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. The software analyzes the surface of the material and offers a suggestion to correct it. Once selected by the operator, the leveler backups will adjust and immediate improvement will be seen on the screen.
