LVD to show automated bending and high-speed laser cutting at Blechexpo 2019

1 min read

At Blechexpo 2019 (Stuttgart, 5-8 November), LVD will showcase Industry 4.0-ready products designed to help sheet metalworking companies advance their business, including the Dyna-Cell robotic bending cell, ToolCell automated tool-changing press brake, Electra 10 kW high-speed fiber laser cutting machine, and CADMAN software.

Visitors to Hall 1, Stand 1713 will discover that Dyna-Cell features LVD’s high-speed Dyna-Press Pro electric press brake and a Kuka robot. Dyna-Press Pro is now available with LVD’s exclusive Easy-Form laser adaptive bending system to ensure bending accuracy. Furthermore, the robot is equipped with LVD’s patent-pending universal gripper, which is able to bend on three sides of a part without re-gripping. As one gripper fits all applications, production is continuous and uninterrupted.

The compact Dyna-Cell automates the bending of small- to medium-sized parts in varying batch sizes, at speeds up to 25 mm/sec, and features an intelligent programming wizard for fast, easy programming. Dyna-Cell follows the 10-10 rule: 10 minutes for CAM generation of the bending and robot program; and 10 minutes for set-up and first-part generation. The cell also allows for unmanned or manned operation, offering a flexible bending solution.

LVD’s ToolCell automated tool-changing press brake maximises bending productivity through the integrated storage of tooling within the machine. The patented Easy-Form laser adaptive bending system provides in-process angle monitoring, which guarantees the desired angle from the first bending operation.

Also on the stand, Electra FL with high-power 10 kW fiber laser is a high-speed laser-cutting machine that profiles ferrous and non-ferrous metals as fast as the thermal process allows. The machine gantry features a linear-drive motor to ensure high dynamics and 2 G acceleration while cutting.

Finally, CADMAN software makes the virtual factory possible, enabling a constant flow of data between machines and software.
