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.
LVD expands its line of ToolCell automated tool changing press brakes with the ToolCell 220/30 Plus and ToolCell 220/40 Plus. The new Plus models can handle bend lengths of 3 and 4 m and have 220 tons of bending force. They feature an open height of 570 mm to accommodate higher tools.
