#LVD expands its ToolCell automated tool changing press brake line with the introduction of a 220-ton model featuring a bend length configuration of 4080 mm. ToolCell is an hydraulic press brake with integrated tool changer unit that reduces press brake set up time, maximizing throughput and efficiency for small to medium batch production.
REDUCES UNPRODUCTIVE SETUP TIME
ToolCell features an integrated storage of tooling, housed within the machine. Tools are precisely and automatically placed, eliminating manual tooling adjustments. While the operator is preparing parts for the next job, the machine automatically unloads the previous tool setup and loads the next setup.
The new ToolCell 220/40 model holds up to two complete lengths of self-seating top tooling (punches) and five complete lengths of bottom tooling (Vee dies). The tooling stadium can be equipped with a flexible tooling configuration to suit specific application requirements.
REAL TIME ANGLE CONTROL
ToolCell uses state-of-the-art hydraulics and electronics and is built on a rigid frame design to ensure accuracy.
ToolCell features LVD’s patented Easy-Form® Laser in process angle monitoring and correction technology, ensuring consistency from the first to the last part. Easy-Form Laser uses measurement at the front and back of the die to determine the exact value of the angle of the workpiece. The sensing devices transmit information in real time to the CNC control unit, which processes it and subsequently recalculates the correct depth adjustment in process to obtain the correct angle. The bending process is not interrupted, and no production time is lost.
INTUITIVE TOUCH SCREEN CONTROL
ToolCell is equipped with LVD’s latest generation 19” touch screen control, Touch-B.
Touch-B features intuitive graphical icons used to control all parameters of the machine, ensuring fast and efficient operation. ToolCell can also be programmed offline using LVD’s CADMAN®-B Tool Changer module.
ToolCell is offered with various configurable machine options, including stroke, open height front supports and sheet following units.
#LVD now offers its latest 19” touch screen graphical user interface, Touch-L, on its Sirius Series of CO2 laser cutting systems. Touch-L adds the ease of touch technology to Sirius standard and Plus models, allowing both routine and complex applications to be quickly and efficiently completed with minimal operator input.
A large 19” screen features intuitive graphical icons and visual indicators to display functions such as lens and nozzle selection, set point piercing/cutting, cutting head position, parts nesting, and provide real time reproduction of the cutting path, guiding the operator through setup and cutting application.
Touch-L also incorporates a part programming and nesting feature allowing users to import parts directly on to the control via a network drive or USB memory stick, apply cutting technology, nesting sheets and cut the nested parts directly at the machine.
Touch-L increases the efficiency and ease of use of Sirius, an automation-ready flying optics laser cutting system with a 1500 x 3000 mm work table format. Sirius features an integrated automatic shuttle table as standard with modular automation options for Sirius Plus, including a compact tower material warehousing system. Sirius is available with a powerful 2,5 kW or 4 kW CO2 Fanuc laser source.
#LVD offers its new Bend app for smartphones and tablet devices providing quick access to helpful bending calculations and tooling information to assist in press brake setup and part production.
The app puts key bending calculations at your fingertips, including bending force estimation and bend allowance and the ability to select key variables such as vee opening, minimum flange length and internal bend radius in metric mode settings with inch mode to follow.
Available content also includes LVD latest product news and updates.
The LVD Bend app is offered as a free download from the iTunes® store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lvd/id595375037?ls=1&mt=8) and the Google play store (.https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=be.idcreation.lvd&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImJlLmlkY3JlYXRpb24ubHZkIl0)
