LVD puts the focus on smart bending and the advantages of interconnected fabrication processes at TechniShow, Hall 7, Stand B082. On display will be the Ulti-Form robotic bending system, nominated for the TechniShow Innovation Awards 2022, in the category “Flexible Production”, a Dyna-Press Pro electric press brake with Easy-Form® Laser adaptive bending technology, and the CADMAN® software suite, a complete family of software modules to simplify programming and streamline the production workflow.
LVD’s Ulti-Form robotic bending system is the next step in smart, automated bending. Ulti-Form handles small batch and long production runs with equal efficiency, delivering high productivity with consistent bending accuracy.
Ulti-Form offers a fast “art to part” process and requires no robot teaching. CADMAN-B software automatically calculates the optimal bend program and imports all bending data into the robot software CADMAN-SIM – no robot teaching is required. SIM automatically calculates gripper positions, generating the fastest collision-free path for the robot, and relays the information back to B, enabling the operator to work with a single program.
LVD’s auto-adapting gripper accommodates a number of part geometries, automatically adjusting to the workpiece size. Its smart design saves investment in different grippers and gripper changeover time.
Ulti-Form features a 135-ton automated tool changing press brake with built-in tooling warehouse integrated with an industrial robot. The cell handles parts from 50 x 100 mm up to 1200 x 800 mm weighing up to 25 kgs.
The Dyna-Press 40/15 Pro electric press brake is designed to efficiently bend parts at high bending speeds of 25 mm/s, producing more parts per hour at a lower cost per part. The electric ram offers smooth transition from approach to working speed and minimizes power consumption.
The 40-ton press brake features a working length of 1530 mm and a precision five-axis backgauge to handle a range of bending applications. Equipped with LVD’s exclusive Easy-Form® Laser adaptive bending system, the machine ensures repeatable bending accuracy. SOFTWARE ADVANCES PROCESS FLOW As manufacturers increasingly turn to digitalization and smart manufacturing, LVD continues to drive the factory of the future with its integration philosophy and CADMAN® software suite. The complete suite of CADMAN software products will be demonstrated, showcasing the latest software enhancements – all designed to improve process flow.
