LVD’s new Ulti-Form robotic bending cell keeps bending productivity at its peak, handling short and long production runs efficiently. Ulti-Form features a 135-ton automated tool changing press brake with built-in tooling warehouse integrated with a KUKA robot. The cell handles parts from 50 x 100 mm up to 1200 x 800 mm weighing up to 25 kgs.

Programming of Ulti-Form is handled completely offline, reducing downtime and setup time. The system automatically calculates gripper positions and a complete collision-free robot path. There is no need to physically teach the robot at the machine.
