The Bradbury Orbital Servo Shear (B.O.S.S.™) brings a revolution to metal sheet cutting. This high speed, closed loop flying shear was developed to increase shearing productivity - and there is no other piece of equipment like it. With its state-of-the-art features, the B.O.S.S.™ provides high production with close tolerance shearing. The intelligent drive and shear system allows the B.O.S.S.™ to be close coupled to a new or existing rollformer and acceleration or deceleration of the line does not affect the cut.
The unique orbital design provides smooth acceleration and allows the B.O.S.S.™ to not be bound by the components needed in the traditional rack and pinion concept. Length and batch information can be manually entered at the control station, or the B.O.S.S.™ can receive downloaded production information from a remote computer.

Our goal with the new Bradbury system was to increase our line’s net throughput, efficiency, and product delivery. With our old system, our largest production run to date had been 35,000 lineal feet. The B.O.S.S.™ Shear system has yielded us over 68,000 lineal feet of product in three hours less time and included 26 coil changes. The B.O.S.S.™ is accurate, fast and reliable. I can say without reservation that our over 100% increase in production is directly attributable to the B.O.S.S.™ and its ability to meet our customer’s delivery demands.
