LVD Strippit has introduced the Strippit VX series of CNC turret punch presses for processing thin sheet materials. The punch presses combine a high-speed, 20-metric-ton hydraulic ram with a 48-station turret.
The hydraulic press drive and motor system delivers axis speeds of up to 530 HPM on 1-in. centers and up to 1,750 SPM. Workpieces up to 0.140 in. are handled at high speed. The three programmable, relocatable work clamps can be programmed to a position on the X carriage and individually relocated to a new position within the part program. This reduces or eliminates no-punch zones to help increase material utilization.
A double-track turret provides a flexible configuration of 48 stations featuring four standard 3.5-in., autoindexable stations that can use wheel tool technology. Every station accepts shaped punches and dies and can be further enhanced with the addition of indexable multitools to expand the autoindexable tools. Hardened sleeves help ensure accurate tool guiding through the life of the machine.
A 1-in. feed clearance between the upper and lower turret allows high-quality forming for a wider range of applications, including the production of forms such as lances, louvers, embossments, and card-guides. The table can handle sheet weights of up to 330 lbs.
