Automatically control flare with servo driven anti-flare fixture
- March 27, 2019
Bradbury Group has introduced a servo driven anti-flare fixture.
Pre-cut roll forming lines are known for quick changeovers between part sizes because there is no requirement to change profiled cut-off blades.
This results in higher line efficiencies and production. With Bradbury’s Auto Anti-Flare Fixture, precut parts can be formed without sacrificing quality. The fixture will reduce flare tolerance in pre-cut steel framing and purlin roll forming lines to +/- 1.0 degree deviation measured in the flare zone.
The anti-flare fixtures, located at the exit end of the roll former, detect the lead and trail end of each part and automatically adjust the rolls to reduce flare on a pre-cut part. Adjustments can be made based upon material yields and strengths. Fixtures may be added to an existing Bradbury purlin or steel framing line or purchased with a new line.
