LVD CONSTRUCTS 1600-TON PRESS BRAKE


LVD is a heavy bending specialist, having built and installed custom heavy-duty press brakes as large as 3000 tons. Recently completed is a custom-designed PPEB-H 1600-ton 12-meter press brake. Soon to be installed, the machine will be bending parts for the transportation industry.  

Servo-controlled with advanced hydraulics and electronics, the custom press brake can form parts up to 12 meters long. The machine has an opening table/ram of 1070 mm, cylinder stroke of 600 mm and a gap of 1000 mm. It features heavy-duty CNC sheet followers T1-T2-T3, each supporting a maximum 600 kg, adjustable along the length of the press brake for handling large plate material. It is equipped with a 9-axis heavy back gauge and automatic programmable bed crowning. The machine is also designed for a tandem set up with a PPEB-H 640-ton 4.5-meter press brake.

Sophisticated features

Modern technology and material handling options make the job of bending heavy plate easier.

  • LVD’s Easy-Form® in-process angle monitoring and correction system adapts the ram position in real-time to ensure precise, consistent bending. The bending process is not interrupted, and no production time is lost.
  • The TOUCH-B touch-screen control and integrated CADMAN-B software help ensure accuracy on the first bend and consistent accuracy thereafter, and reduce the time it takes to go from part program to finished part.
  • Programmable gauges, sheet followers, front sheet supports and other material handling equipment add to the overall efficiency of the bending operation and are often a necessity for precise bending of large, hard-to-handle work pieces.

Why 1600 tons?

Heavy plate fabricators in industries like heavy equipment, ship building, defense, and transportation, working with high tensile steels and fabricating parts in materials greater than 6 mm in thickness, turn to high-tonnage press brakes to:

  • Fabricate parts in medium to large sections
  • Bend tough steel plate
  • Form long parts in a single pass
  • Reduce the number of welds and secondary processing operations
  • Gain versatility in producing large parts

NEW 40-TON DYNA-PRESS ELECTRIC PRESS BRAKE

LVD Strippit has expanded its Dyna-Press Series of compact, high-speed electric press brakes with the addition of the Dyna-Press 40/15 Plus, a new 40-ton model that offers a working length of 60” (1530mm) featuring a precision four-axis back gauge and LVD’s exclusive TOUCH-B touch screen CNC control.

Like the other Dyna-Press models in LVD Strippit’s product portfolio, the new Dyna-Press 40/15 Plus is designed to efficiently bend parts at high bending speeds of 59” per minute (25 mm/s), producing more parts per hour at a lower cost per part. The coupling of the ram and servomotors is realized through two heavy-duty ball screws to distribute force and tonnage evenly across the working length. The electric ram offers smooth transition from approach to working speed and minimizes power consumption through the use of an optimal power to inertia motor ratio.

MORE BENDING FORCE & FLEXIBILITY

In addition to the fast acting ram and higher bending force, the newest Dyna-Press provides impressive production capabilities with extremely consistent repeatability and accuracy, as well as the flexibility to handle a broader range of parts through a precision four-axis back gauge.

FAST SETUP WITH TOUCH CONTROL
The TOUCH-B 15-inch touch screen control makes setup fast and efficient. The CNC control minimizes operator input and makes part programming easy and intuitive. With minimal input, the operator can create 2D and simulate in 3D on the 15-inch touch screen. The TOUCH-B control also offers network connection with CADMAN®-B programming software for added flexibility.

DESIGNED FOR ERGONOMICS
The Dyna-Press 40/15 Plus is ergonomically designed, a front support table gives the operator the option to work in a seated or standing position.

A VERSATILE CHOICE
LVD Strippit’s new Dyna-Press 40/15 Plus joins the Dyna-Press 12/8, 24/12 and 24/12 Plus models. All Dyna-Press press brakes offer the flexibility of tooling choice. An extensive range of tooling styles are available for both punches and dies.

NEW SMART DRAWING IMPORTER MODULE ADDED TO CADMAN SOFTWARE SUITE

LVD Strippit has added a new module to its CADMAN® Suite of programming and shop management software. CADMAN-SDI (Smart Drawing Importer) simplifies 2D and 3D CAD file import and calculation of cost drivers so users can more quickly and accurately create job estimates. It features an integrated 3D CAD package used to check or correct imported files. CADMAN-SDI adds yet more functionality to the integrated suite of database-driven CADMAN products designed to help users optimize programming and maximize throughput in the workshop.

SMART IMPORT

A CAD drawing file is imported into the module with simple drag and drop action. A file can be imported part by part or in a batch of parts using STEP, SAT, IGIS, DXF, DWG, SLDPRT, IPT, STL, WMF or a number of other file formats. Once imported, the file is converted to OSM (Open Sheet Metal) format and stored in the central CADMAN database.

CADMAN-SDI displays key cost driver information obtained from the 2D/3D file import and automatically saves the converted OSM file directly into the CADMAN database. The stored OSM files are also immediately accessible for all other modules of the CADMAN Suite for fast and efficient generation of laser, punching, bending programs and jobs scheduling.

ALL THE COST DETAILS NEEDED

CADMAN-SDI provides all the details needed to create an accurate cost estimate, including all relevant part information, such as part name, 3D and unfolded 2D drawing, material type and thickness, as well as all cost drivers such as contour length, netto and bruto part area, bounding box 2D, 3D outside dimension, the mass of the part, cutting length, number of contours, number of bends, and more. All the data is visible at a glance on the control screen. Data can also be exported to an Excel, PDF, XML or CSV file.

INTEGRATED SHEET METAL CAD PACKAGE

CADMAN-SDI includes BricsCAD®, a robust 3D direct modeling CAD package. BricsCAD allows the 3D drawing to be reviewed in detail, modified or corrected as required. BricsCAD provides recognition of features, allows the user to modify a junction into a bend, change overlaps, create notches and lofted bends, program parametric parts and even import entire assemblies.
