LVD and LVD-HD will showcase specialized profiling and bending machinery at Tube 2012 Hall 5 Booth E17.

LVD-HD’s PPF Series of multi-cylinder bending machines are designed for forming large pipes up to 1524mm diameter and are available in capacities up to 10000 tons, 12,5 metre configurations. They are ideally suited to address the pipe manufacturing needs of the Oil and Gas industries.

These heavy-duty, specialized forming presses feature front and back feeding and support systems, roller conveyor, side discharge system, and LVD’s exclusive CADMAN® Touch control. This multiple cylinder machine is driven by an electro-hydraulic servo synchronous system, providing precise control of the ram and adjustment of the Y-axis to compensate for material variations. Positioning accuracy is 0,05mm with repetitive accuracy of 0.03mm.

PPF bending machines may be equipped with automatic feeding, charging and discharging systems for increased efficiency.

LVD’s custom PPEB-H press brakes suit pipe forming and specialized section/ profile forming applications with the ability to handle workpieces up to 14 metres long (28 metres long on tandem machines). PPEB-H Series machines are available in capacities from 400 tons up to 3000 tons in stand alone configurations, as well as tandem designs up to 6000 tons, comprised of two press bakes, servo-controlled with state-of-the-art hydraulics and electronics.

PPEB-H press brakes are provided as a turnkey system including press brake, CNC feeding – evacuation automation, and CNC forming tools.
Key features include CADMAN® Touch CNC control, an icon-driven touch screen system that works in conjunction with an on board Windows® operating platform and LVD’s CADMAN-B 3D programming software to simplify and shorten programming and production time.

LVD’s Impuls Series of flying optics laser cutting systems features a large table capacity to handle sheet sizes up to 3,10 x 12,5 metres.

Uniquely designed for heavy plate cutting and profiling, these high performance laser cutting machines process mild steel up to 25mm; stainless steel up to 15mm. An optional CNC rotary axis processes profiles/pre-formed parts up to 500mm in diameter in mild steel up to 20mm thick.

A constant beam length system achieves consistently accurate cutting results throughout the complete work envelope. Optional features include NC Focus control, process control, automatic shut down, and CADMAN® offline programming software. Impuls is offered with a laser source of 2.5, 4 or 6 kW.
