LVD Synchro-Form Adaptive Bending System
LVD Strippit has introduced Synchro-Form adaptive bending technology, an integrated feature of the Synchro-Form series press brake. The technology automatically maintains angular consistency and the required geometric profile when handling, positioning, and bending large parts with multiple bends. The system overcomes the problems of accumulative error and trial-and-error bending when forming large profiles, states the company.
The system uses a laser scanner and synchro modules (X-, R-, and A-axis magnets) to manipulate, position, and measure each bend, relaying the digital information to the Touch-B control, which makes adjustments to part and ram position to achieve the correct profile. Variations are not accumulated, but instead compensated with each bend step to maintain accuracy even after multiple, consecutive bends.
