Hydraulic Press Brakes with Multi-Axis Backgauge

LVD Strippit has introduced a new range of press brakes to its bending product line. PPED Series hydraulic press brakes feature a multi-axis backgauge, CNC crowning system and a 15" version of LVD's exclusive TOUCH-B graphical icon-driven CNC controller.

PPED Series press brakes are suited for a wide range of bending jobs. The rigid construction and servo-controlled hydraulic system is designed to produce consistent bending results no matter the application. The PPED Series offers three models (PPED-4, PPED-6 and PPED-7) with either two (X, R) or four (X, R, Z1, Z2) standard backgauge axes. "A multi-axis backgauge makes the PPED highly versatile and reduces machine set-up time across simple to complex bending jobs," said a company spokesperson.

"The LVD's TOUCH-B control minimizes operator input and makes part programming easy and intuitive." With minimal input, the operator can create designs in 2-D and simulate in 3-D on the 15" touchscreen. Dimensions are simply keyed into the controller or the part program is recalled from storage. Users can also work with standard and custom parametric programs for rapid programming. TOUCH-B works with the centralized database and is compatible with CADMAN-JOB and CADMAN-B.

The PPED-7 model in bending lengths from 3 meters and up is equipped with a crowning system as standard. Sheet thickness, bend length, punch radius, die opening and material data are entered into the TOUCH-B control to determine the amount of crowning required to compensate for bed and ram deflection. LVD's proprietary design creates a perfect 'crown' using accurately machined contact wedges that are moved against each other under servo control.

The PPED is available in different models from 50 to 320 metric tons, bend lengths from 78" to 157" (2,000 to 4,000 mm).
