Original Press Release:
New Strippit M-Series CNC Turret Punch Presses Feature 51% More Turret Capacity in an Affordable Design
Akron, NY - LVD Strippit introduces the Strippit M-Series of mid-range 20 metric ton CNC turret punch presses featuring a 51% larger turret capacity than previous models. The 47-station turret provides high flexibility and reduces set-up time, increasing machine productivity. Equipped with LVD Strippit's Energy Reduction System (ERS), Strippit M-Series punch presses consume up to 30% less electrical power than comparable machines and are less costly to operate and maintain.
MORE TURRET CAPACITY
Designed to minimize the time spent changing tooling, Strippit M-Series punch presses have a versatile mix of turret stations, including three 3.5" (88.9) auto-index stations and four 2" (50.8 mm) stations. Every station accepts shaped punches and dies and can be enhanced with the addition of indexable multi-tools to further expand turret capacity and flexibility while reducing set-up time. Quick-change die holders also minimize tool changeover time. The Strippit MSeries utilizes all the latest tooling technology such as special forming tools, wheel-style tooling, tapping and deburring systems.
Hardened steel guide bushings and hardened shot pins provide precise alignment of punch and die for exceptional hole quality and long tool life. Bi-directional turret rotation automatically selects the shortest possible route to the next punching station for fast station-to-station positioning resulting in higher productivity.
Strippit M-Series machines are equipped with an advanced servo-driven hydraulic press drive optimized for high-performance operation. Axis speeds of up to 380 hits per minute on 1" (25 mm) centers and up to 900 hits per minute on 0.04" (1 mm) centers are achieved.
LVD Strippit's newest punch presses maximize material utilization by handling workpieces up to 49.21" x 98.4" (1250 x 2500 mm) with larger sheets processed using clamp repositioning.
Workpiece thicknesses up to 0.250" (6.35 mm) are accommodated. Material utilization is further optimized with Smart Clamp(TM), a standard feature that automatically determines exact clamp locations to reduce set-up time and ensure work clamp protection.
The machines also feature a full .984" (25 mm) feed clearance between the upper and lower turret, allowing for the production of higher forms such as lances, louvers, embossments or card guides.
A brush table minimizes noise and part scratching and permits economical changeover or replacement of individual brushes.
An Energy Reduction System (ERS) ensures that electrical power usage is efficiently managed. ERS reduces energy consumption up to 30% compared to older machine designs, making Strippit machines among the world's lowest energy consuming punch presses.
A state-of-the-art, PC-based Fanuc control is easy to use and proven reliable. The CNC control provides powerful features such as diagnostics, offers large program storage capacity and networking capability with user friendly MMI (man-machine-interface).
The control delivers powerful features such as full color graphics, advanced "real-time" diagnostics, increased program storage capacity and is network ready for easy transfer of programs from other computers.
Optional CADMAN® programming software provides automatic unfolding of 3D SAT and IGES files, auto-nesting full support for all standard and advanced punching functions, including auto-index stations, multi-tools, standard and special punches, forming, embossing, tapping, stamping and wheel-style tools.
For maximum productivity, Strippit M-Series punch presses can be integrated with an optional, retrofitable automatic load/unload system or 6- or 10-pallet Compact Tower (CT-P) for full material loading, unloading and storage.
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.
