Bradbury Offers Roll Tooling Training Course

The Bradbury Roll Tooling Training Course, taught by Ron Dies, includes both classroom and hands-on training.

Moundridge, KS - For customers who've made the investment in Bradbury roll forming equipment to meet their manufacturing needs, The Bradbury Group has developed a comprehensive roll forming training program to help those customers' employees correctly operate and maintain the machines.

Bradbury's Roll Tooling Training Course is taught by Ron Dies, Bradbury Technical Training Director & Preventative Maintenance. He will instruct and guide machine operators during a full day of technical roll tooling training. With nearly 20 years of direct experience with Bradbury equipment, he has a vast amount of knowledge to share regarding equipment install, maintenance, line operation, and more.

The one-day course includes five to six hours of classroom instruction and two to three hours of engaged, hands-on training. Although having the course at Bradbury is an option, customers are urged to consider having the training at their own facilities, thus allowing Dies the opportunity to work with employees on the machine they operate and resolve any questions or concerns they may currently have.

The class will cover four main topics: 

  1. Learn to read and understand Bradbury's roll tooling prints and discover how Bradbury designs roll tooling.
  2. Learn to assemble Bradbury mills to prepare for roll tooling and how to install Bradbury raft plates. 
  3. Learn to properly set up, calibrate, and align Bradbury roll tooling. 
  4. Learn to accurately diagnose and troubleshoot profile issues. 

Bradbury recommends seasoned operators, new operators, maintenance technicians, quality control inspectors, safety coordinators, etc. all be included in the training, as any and all would benefit from the experience. 

Interested customers are encouraged to contact The Bradbury Group at 620-345-6394 to discuss class size options, cost, and the advantages this course will bring to their production.
