FABTECH 2019: Transform Your Business
Automated Bending, High-speed Laser Cutting, Flexible Punching – Booth A2140
Transform your business with Industry 4.0-ready solutions, including the latest in bending, laser cutting and punching technology.
On display at FABTECH booth A2140:
New Dyna-Cell automated bending cell makes its North American debut at FABTECH. Dyna-Cell combines the high-speed Dyna-Press Pro electric press brake and a Kuka robot to automate the bending of small- to medium-sized parts in varying batch sizes at speeds up to 25mm per second.
Dyna-Cell is equipped with an intelligent programming wizard, revolutionary because CAM program preparation is handled completely offline with no need to physically teach the robot. This eliminates considerable downtime and ensures that the bending process is continuous and uninterrupted. After importing the 3D-drawing, the software automatically generates the bending and robotics program. The software calculates an optimum collision-free path, including all gripper positions. Families of parts have been defined for easy programming, such as multi flange, brackets and profiles.
LVD’s 10-10 rule delivers on the promise of a fast “art to part” process with 10 minutes for CAM generation of the bending and robot program and 10 minutes for set-up and first part generation.
Other key features:
- Dyna-Cell is designed to work in either automated bending mode or as a stand-alone press brake
- A patent-pending universal gripper handles a wide diversity of parts, eliminating the need for different-sized grippers and reducing part regripping and changeover time.
- Dyna-Cell is a compact bending cell with a footprint of only 5 m x 5 m.
ToolCell automated tool changing press brake maximizes bending productivity through an integrated storage of tooling, housed within the machine. While the operator is preparing parts for the next job, the machine unloads the previous tool setup and loads the next setup, all without manual intervention.
ToolCell is equipped with the patented Easy-Form® Laser (EFL) adaptive bending system. EFL provides in-process angle monitoring, which guarantees the desired angle from the first bending operation. The EFL system transmits the digital information in real time to the CNC control unit, which processes it and immediately adjusts the position of the ram/punch to achieve the correct angle. The bending process is not interrupted and no production time is lost.
Electra FL with high-power 10kW fiber laser provides ultra-high-speed cutting to achieve premium cutting results at the highest possible output when processing ferrous and nonferrous materials in plate thicknesses up to 1.25” (30 mm). Electra features a welded steel monoframe construction that provides exceptional stiffness and weighs 33,000 lbs. As a result, Electra can maintain an acceleration of 2G during cutting. The 10 kW Electra can nitrogen-cut 5/16” (8 mm) steel three times as fast as a 6 kW fiber laser. High speed cutting coupled with new nozzle technology reduces nitrogen consumption by up to 30% and results in a tremendous reduction in the cost per part.
TL 2665-FL tube laser cutting machine efficiently processes round, rectangular, square or other standard tube profiles up to 7925 mm long in a range of materials. A cost-efficient design, the TL 2665-FL offers more value for the investment, equipped with a standard 7-position magazine-type automatic tube loader, automatic setup and run, bow detection and twist compensation features which minimize downtime and increase tube cutting output. The TL 2665-FL is enhanced with a high-performance Fanuc laser package and Fanuc touch-screen control.
Strippit PX-1530 punch press can punch, form, bend and tap to efficiently complete multiple processes, including complex, three-dimensional parts. With a capacity of up to 200 tools, the ability to use any tool at any angle anywhere on the sheet, and the ability to form flanges up to 3” (75 mm) high, the Strippit PX offers top versatility. Now available: An Extended Tool Magazine (ETM) holds up to 40 additional tools that can be automatically loaded or unloaded during machine operation.
CADMAN® software makes the virtual factory possible, enabling a constant flow of data between machines and software. CADMAN looks at the big picture and helps streamline the complete fabrication process – from production control, communication, planning and management to punching, bending and laser cutting – through integrated, database-driven software that gives real-time insights from the shop floor and instant control of production processes.
