LVD launches the next generation of adaptive bending technology

LVD Introduces Synchro-Form Adaptive Bending Technology

LVD introduces Synchro-Form, the next leap in adaptive bending technology. Synchro-Form automatically maintains angular consistency and the required geometric profile when handling, positioning and bending large parts with multiple bends. The system overcomes the problems of accumulative error and trial-and-error bending when forming large profiles. As a result, Synchro-Form ensures precise, efficient bending, eliminating manual operations and increasing throughput. The system made its debut at the recent EuroBLECH tradeshow.

Synchro-Form evolves LVD’s renowned adaptive bending technology, making it easy to produce accurate bends in large workpieces. The system is a unique design. It uses a laser scanner and synchro modules (X, R, A-axes magnets) to manipulate, position and measure each bend, relaying the digital information to the TOUCH-B control, which makes adjustments to part and ram position to achieve the correct profile. Variations are not accumulated but, instead, compensated with each bend step. Even after multiple, consecutive bends, the profile will be perfectly formed.

LVD is a leader in adaptive bending technology. The Synchro-Form system joins LVD’s Easy-Form® Laser, a patented in-process angle monitoring system introduced in 2002 and currently featured on all Easy-Form® press brakes. LVD’s unique Easy-Form system uses a laser and symmetrical measurement at the front and back of the die to determine the exact value of the angle of the workpiece. 

LVD’s Synchro-Form is an integrated feature of Synchro-Form Series in models ranging from 320 tons by 4 meters up to 3000 tons by 14 meters and also available in tandem, tridem and quadem configurations. These configure-to-order machines are typically used in the crane boom, yellow goods, lighting pole, construction, transport, agricultural, offshore, oil/gas, and wind-power industries.
