LVD Strippit now offers 35- to 50-ton configurations of its PPEC series of midrange press brakes. The machines achieve bending speeds up to 47 IPM. The Energy Reduction System (ERS) feature helps reduce the cost of operation by offering energy savings of up to 30 percent over comparable designs, the company states.
The press brakes are equipped with the manufacturer's CADMAN® Lite control, which features 2-D graphic programming with automatic collision detection, direct-angle or quick-bend programming, and connection with CADMAN-B offline programming software.
The machines feature a welded one-piece frame machined without repositioning, which the company says guarantees machine precision. The hydraulic cylinders are machined from a solid steel billet. The pistons are steel forgings, precision-ground and micropolished.
Microprocessor technology is linked to servo-controlled hydraulics and electronics to help ensure control of the bending process and precision. Double-bed referenced encoders are connected to the bed so that deformation of the side frames during bending does not influence the upper beam’s 0.0004-in. positioning accuracy.
