Artificial intelligence helps process flat material

Bradbury Flat Trak Aug20 1

The Bradbury Group’s FlatTrak CL Strip Evaluation System uses artificial intelligence to analyze strip condition and provide suggested adjustments to levelers to process flat material. The system comes with a material conveyor and flat measuring surface to match a pass line and line width. A material encoder identifies strip travel length. An end-of-coil proximity switch signals when coil is complete and ready to reset. A programmable logic controller (PLC), input/output (I/O) and amplifiers are enclosed in a machine junction box.
