LVD is named after its founding fathers, Jacques Lefebvre, Marc Vanneste and Robert Dewulf. Established in the 1950s, LVD gained recognition as a precision press brake manufacturer. Significant growth in the 1990s, which included the acquisition of Strippit, Inc. in 1998, a U.S. based manufacturer of turret punch press equipment and the addition of laser cutting products to its portfolio helped position the company as a leader in laser, punching and bending technology.
Today, LVD offers a full range of integrated products for the global sheet metalworking market. The company has five manufacturing facilities and is active in more than 45 countries following the principle of localized sales and service for each region.
Two custom bending cells each comprised of an LVD Easy-Form press brake and Fanuc robots have automated the production of complex formed parts for KUIPERS CNC-Blechtechnik – parts that could not be manufactured using a standard modular solution.
LVD introduces new automation offerings for its Phoenix FL‑4020 and Phoenix FL‑6020 large-format fiber laser cutting machines, including options for an automated load/unload system and a range of Compact Tower (CT-L) solutions for the Phoenix FL‑4020.
