Press Release Summary:
The ToolCell XT Automatic Toolchanging Press Brake from LVD Strippit has a total length of tools with 17,280 mm maximum punches and 40,320 mm maximum dies. The system consists of two laser cameras and Touch-B control. The system’s measuring device transmits digital information in real time to CNC control for subsequent adjustment of the depth to obtain correct angle. The ToolCell XT provides intuitive graphical icons to manage parameters of the machine and is available in 135 ton/ 4 meter configuration.
Original Press Release:
New Toolcell Xt Press Brake Offers 50% More Tooling Capacity
Akron, NY, November 1, 2018 – LVD Strippit launches ToolCell XT, the latest generation of its ToolCell automatic tool changing press brake with extended capacity to hold 50 percent more tooling than the original design. ToolCell XT is the solution to efficiently bend small batch – high mix parts with high accuracy and with minimal changeover time. The large capacity of tools housed within the press brake provides the flexibility to handle a wider range of bending jobs, including complex layouts. ToolCell XT made its debut at EuroBLECH.
QUICK & PRECISE TOOL CHANGES
ToolCell XT features an extended integrated storage of tooling. The press brake holds an impressive total length of tools: A maximum of 17,280 mm (+/- 17.2 m) punches and a maximum of 40,320 mm (+/- 40.32 m) dies. Extra toolboxes are integrated on both sides of the machine.
ToolCell XT performs tool changes quickly and precisely following an optimized tool change path. Automated tooling setup improves the efficiency of bending operations and eliminates time-consuming manual tooling adjustments.
With its extended tooling capacity, ToolCell XT offers the versatility to handle varying material types, organize tooling by material type, easily switch between stainless steel and mild steel applications.
REAL-TIME ANGLE CORRECTION
In small batch production, it’s critical to avoid costly test bends. Like all ToolCell press brakes, ToolCell XT is equipped with the LVD Easy-Form® Laser (EFL) in-process adaptive bending technology. EFL guarantees the desired angle from the first bending operation.
The system consists of two laser cameras linked with an intelligent bending database in the Touch-B control. As the bending sequence of the press brake is initiated, the measuring device transmits the digital information in real time to the CNC control, which processes it and subsequently adjusts the depth to obtain the correct angle. The bending process is not interrupted and no production time is lost.
ADVANCED CONTROL & SOFTWARE
ToolCell XT features the latest Touch-B control. Intuitive graphical icons are used to quickly and easily manage all parameters of the machine.
The control is linked to a central CADMAN® database where all production-relevant data is stored. After importing a 3D CAD part, CADMAN-B (bending) software automatically calculates bend allowances and determines the optimal bend sequence, gauge positions and tool setups. This expertise is based upon CADMAN’s expert algorithms for unfolding and collision computation during the complete bending process.
ToolCell XT is offered in a 135 ton/4-meter configuration with other sizes to follow.
LVD is a leading manufacturer of sheet metal/plate working equipment, including laser cutting systems, punch presses, press brakes, guillotine shears and mid-level automation systems, integrated to and supported by its CADMAN® software suite. LVD Industry 4.0-ready products and technology make smart manufacturing possible.
