New Strippit P-1525 CNC turret punch press efficiently handles large/oversized workpieces
LVD Company nv introduces the Strippit P-1525, a 200kN cost-effective CNC turret punch press designed to efficiently handle large or oversized workpieces up to 1524 x 2500 mm. Larger sheets can be processed with clamp repositioning.
Part of the Strippit P-Series of punch presses, the P-1525 is ideal for the processing of large panels in cellular manufacturing or job shop environments.
LVD’s latest turret punch press delivers up to 270 hits per minute on 25,4 mm centers, and up to 600 hits per minute in nibble mode. The machine provides a ± 0,1 mm finished part accuracy and ± 0,05 mm finished part repeatability. It processes material thicknesses up to 3,5 mm mild steel and up to 6,35 mm aluminum.
ADVANCED HYDRAULIC RAM TECHNOLOGY
A servo-driven hydraulic ram offers control of the ram position to achieve the highest punching rates of any machine in its class. Parameters are easily accessed and changed to provide optimal forming characteristics.
The advanced hydraulic drive system reduces noise and shock to increase machine longevity and reduce tool wear.
A direct drive axes configuration provides the industry’s tightest tolerances. This design better controls both part tolerance and repeatability to eliminate backlash and wear for repeatable accuracy and reliability.
TURRET FEATURES THREE 50,8 MM AUTO-INDEX STATIONS
The Strippit P-1525 features a 21-station thick-style turret with all turret stations keyed for maximum tool load flexibility. This versatile turret design allows every station to accept shaped or round punches and dies, reducing set-up time.
The machine is standard with three 50,8 mm auto-index stations. Each station accepts tools up to 50,8 mm in diameter, including wheel-style or scribing tools.
A full 25 mm feed clearance between the upper and lower turret allows for the production of higher forms such as lances, louvers, embossments or card guides.
The Strippit P-1525 turret is equipped with replaceable hardened steel guide bushings for accurate punch and die alignment, eliminating the need to rebore the turret. Hardened outboard shot pins provide precise alignment of punch and die for exceptional hole quality.
A large tool door allows easy access to the turret for tool loading. Quick-change die holders further reduce set-up time.
The machine’s rigid frame and precise tool guiding system ensure punch and die alignment to provide long tool life and consistently high quality parts.
RELIABLE PC-BASED CONTROL
A state-of-the-art, PC-based Fanuc control is easy to use and proven reliable.
The CNC control provides powerful features such as diagnostics, offers large program storage capacity and networking capability with user friendly MMI (man-machine-interface).
The control delivers powerful features such as full color graphics, advanced “real-time” diagnostics, increased program storage capacity and is network ready for easy transfer of programs from other computers.
Optional CADMAN® programming software provides automatic unfolding of 3D SAT and IGES files, auto-nesting full support for all standard and advanced punching functions, including auto-index stations, multi-tools, standard and special punches, forming, embossing, tapping, stamping and wheel-style tools.
