LVD Upgrades and Expands PPS Series Press Brakes to Offer Models in Capacities up to 320 tons


Gullegem, Belgium – LVD Company nv has upgraded and expanded its PPS Series of cost-effective precision hydraulic press brakes for increased performance to offer a wider range of models up to 320 tons in capacity.

Upgraded Specification

New, higher specification PPS models offer greater flexibility and performance with increased open height, stroke and operating speeds. PPS series machines are available with either LVD, Wila, Universal or US style tooling systems.

The latest models boast new style back gauges: from the standard X-axis back gauge with superior construction for better, more accurate gauging and a hand-wheel R-axis adjustment to the optional X-R back gauge, equipped with the same superior construction plus a programmable R-axis.

Increased number of models

The addition of higher tonnage models to the PPS series provide heavier bending capacities to suit a broader range of applications. This makes the PPS Series one of the most comprehensive lines of entry-level press brakes with machines from 50 to 320 tons and bend lengths from 2000 to 4000 mm.

Robust, durable and affordable

Available in 3- or 4-axis configurations, PPS press brakes combine a rugged, simple design and easy-to-use features in a value-minded machine that is ideal for general purpose bending applications.

All models include LVD’s touch screen control unit equipped with LVD’s graphic user interface, enabling quick programming of simple parts. The control is easy to learn and can be used by operators of all skill levels.

PPS models up to 320 tons feature a rugged, welded one-piece frame machined without repositioning guaranteeing machine precision. Hydraulic cylinders are machined from a solid steel billet. Pistons are steel forgings, precision ground and micropolished for years of trouble-free service.

Microprocessor Technology is linked to servo-controlled state-of-the-art hydraulics and electronics to ensure perfect control of the bending process and optimum precision.

Table sizing

Three new table sizes, 140 mm for Multi-V 70 mm square, 180 mm for Multi-V 90 mm square, and 250 mm for Multi-V 130 mm are available, depending on the model.
