LVD Strippit Introduces New PPEC Series of Mid-Range Press Brakes
Akron, NY -- LVD Strippit introduces a new line of PPEC press brakes designed as a mid-range bending solution to offer a balanced mix of performance and value for less challenging forming applications.
LVD Strippit's new PPEC press brakes, including PPEC-6 and PPEC-7 models, provide capacities from 80 tons, 2 meters up to 220 tons, 4.2 meters with four to seven CNC controlled axes, depending upon machine model.
PPEC press brakes provide a rugged, welded one-piece frame machined without repositioning guaranteeing machine precision. Hydraulic cylinders are machined from a solid steel billet. Pistons are steel forgings, precision ground and micropolished for years of trouble-free service.
Microprocessor Technology is linked to servo-controlled state-of-the-art hydraulics and electronics to ensure perfect control of the bending process and optimum precision. Double bed referenced encoders are connected to the bed in such a way that deformation of the side frames during bending does not influence the positioning accuracy of 0,01 mm of the upper beam (Y1-Y2).
The PPEC's two-axis backgauge allows depth (X-axis) and height (R-axis) positioning of the two standard backgauge fingers. PPEC-6 and PPEC-7 models offer the additional flexibility of Z1 and Z2 motorized backgauge movement. The standard PPEC backgauge fingers allow gauging to 39.4" (1000 mm) and also serve as material supports. PPEC-4 and PPEC-5 models can be fitted with an additional third finger support, which is ideally suited to the bending of channels.
A V-axis crowning system fitted to PPEC-5 and PPEC-7 models ensures parallel and consistent bending results on longer bending length over the different tonnage levels.
All new PPEC press brakes are equipped with LVD Strippit's new CADMAN® Lite control. Based on the same easy-to-use platform as the full-featured CADMAN® Touch control, CADMAN Lite offers a number of the same key features, including 2D graphic programming with automatic collision detection, direct angle or Quick Bend programming, and connection with LVD Strippit's CADMAN-B offline programming software.
The LVD Group is a leading manufacturer of a comprehensive range of sheet metal/plate working machine tools and software solutions, including laser cutting systems, punch presses, press brakes, guillotine shears and mid-level automation systems, integrated and supported by its CADMAN® PC-based Windows® compatible software.
