55 years have passed since the first hydraulic crane with the name Fassi was produced in Italy. Today, Fassi Gru is one of the top hydraulic crane manufacturers in the world. Carpenteria C.S., part of the Fassi Group, bends the complex hexagonal-shaped components for mobile crane arms using an LVD Synchro-Form press brake.
The productivity of a Phoenix laser cutting system with MOVit Tower Automation System (TAS), has allowed J.A. Harvey to condense 110 hours of laser cutting and 100 hours of plasma cutting into just 70 hours on the new machine. This has enabled the company to cut costs by 20% on large contracts.
GLA-WEL runs three LVD bending systems, a 220t ToolCell with automatic tool changer and two Easy-Form press brakes, 135 and 320 tons. It is also making extensive use of LVD’s CADMAN®-SDI file importing and calculating software, CADMAN-B offline programming software and CADMAN-JOB workflow software.
Shapes Metalworks uses a 6 kW Phoenix FL 6020 fiber laser cutting machine with automated load/unload system to cut large sheets 6 by 2 meters at high speeds, produce quality cuts in parts up to 25 mm, and handle large sheet processing with the efficiency of automation.
Kuipers CNC-Blechtechnik, Meppen, Germany, uses Easy-Form press brakes equipped with robotics to fully automate its bending operation for production of formed parts that can’t be manufactured using standard bending cells.
