LVD Strippit now offers the Vari-Vee V30-140 CNC adjustable Vee die for its complete range of PPEB and Easy-Form precision press brakes.
The die complements the company’s heavy-duty Vari-Vee option. This smaller version die offers the benefits of a variable and adjustable bottom Vee die to a broader range of LVD Strippit press brake models from 320 to 1000 tons and up to 315 in. (8.0 m) in length.
The die provides automatic adjustment of the V-width in increments of 0.39 in. (10 mm), reducing setup time and providing flexibility for bending operations.
The Vari-Vee variable die allows the bending of sharp angles up to 50 degrees for the maximum V-width. This is especially critical when forming high strength materials because of significant spring back. The radius on the die is a hardened insert which is machined with LVD’s patented Stone compound curve for optimal rolling and friction reducing properties.
The new die is ideal for applications that demand bending of different thicknesses of materials; frequent die changes; bending thick materials with large Vee widths or different radii on the same component, as well as bending high strength materials which tend to crack while bending.
