LVD launches new Easy-Cell bending automation

Share This Post

LVD Company has launched Easy-Cell 80/25, the latest in its line of robotic bending cells for automated bending.

Easy-Cell offers high flexibility to produce a wide range of parts with the precision of a built-in adaptive bending system which ensures bend angle accuracy from the first part. The robotic bending cell incorporates LVD’s advanced software for fast, simple offline programming of both press brake and robot. Users benefit from the productivity of automated bending with high process reliability and low part cost.

FLEXIBLE SCOPE
Easy-Cell 80/25 combines an Easy-Form 80-ton press brake with Kuka industrial robot to handle parts from 100 x 100 mm up to 1600 x 1200 mm weighing up to 25 kg. The press brake features a 2500 mm bend length, five-axis backgauge, and 2500 mm crowning table, providing the versatility to accommodate a broad scope of bending applications.

The cell features multiple robot grippers that can be easily changed to suit the job. The robot uses a unique swivel function to optimise workpiece regripping. The swivel movement reduces the time it takes for regripping, improving overall cycle time.

PRECISE PART PRODUCTION
Easy-Cell is equipped with LVD’s Easy-Form Laser for bend accuracy assured from the first part. Automation with built-in quality assurance provides a high degree of consistency in production, especially critical for automated operations.

Easy-Form Laser uses adaptive, in-process control over the bend angle. The system compensates for material variations such as sheet thickness, strain hardening and grain direction. Scanners continuously measure the bend angle and transmit the information in real time to the CNC control for immediate adjustment of the punch position to achieve the correct angle. The bending process is not interrupted and no production time is lost.

POWERFUL SOFTWARE
Powered by LVD’s CADMAN-SIM software, Easy-Cell accelerates “art to part” production with automatic generation of bending and robot program. The software defines all gripper positions and optimises the program for bending sequence, collision-free operation, and other parameters. Programming is handled offline. No robot teaching is required.
