Gullegem, Belgium — LVD Company nv announces the next generation of its Easy-Form® and PPEB Series of high performance press brakes featuring a new, modern design that is more energy efficient, easier to use and incorporates added safety features. Aesthetic and ergonomic, the new generation press brakes also feature advanced control technology, servo drives and scanning sensors, ensuring more responsive operation and higher productivity.
Designed with the operator in mind, next generation Easy-Form and PPEB press brakes are more functional and user friendly. An optional LED lighting system illuminates the back gauge and front work zone areas to provide better operator visibility and increased worker safety. Status lighting built into the press brake ram covers offers a visual indication of the machine’s operation status, enabling more effective shop management for higher throughput.
ENERGY SAVINGS UP TO 45%
The on-board LVD Energy Reduction System (ERS) intelligently manages energy consumption to ensure lowest possible energy usage in all modes of operation.
ERS technology reduces power consumption up to 45% over conventional models, making Easy-Form and PPEB press brakes the most energy efficient in their class.
INTUITIVE TOUCH SCREEN CONTROL
The latest generation Easy-Form and PPEB press brakes employ LVD’s most advanced Touch-B control system, a graphical icon-driven touch screen control. The operator interfaces with the press brake using a 19” touch screen flat panel to make full use of the machine’s bending capabilities. Working with the Touch-B control is easy and intuitive no matter the operator skill level.
REAL TIME ANGLE CONTROL
Easy-Form press brakes are equipped with 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 adjusts the correct depth adjustment in process to obtain the correct angle.
Easy-Form and PPEB press brakes are offered in multi-axis configurations to suit a broad range of bending applications. Machine options include front sheet supports, CNC controlled sheet followers, programmable tooling, CADMAN® offline programming software, among others.
