Synchro-Form wins EuroBLECH 2016 award
LVD Company nv is a proud recipient of the “Award for EuroBLECH” in the metal forming category for its new Synchro-Form adaptive bending technology introduced at the show. The Award for EuroBLECH, presented by the publications Blechnet and MM MaschinenMarkt, recognizes the most innovative new products of the international sheet metalworking technology exhibition, now in its 24th year. Carl Dewulf, president and managing director for LVD, accepted the award at a ceremony held on Tuesday, October 25 at the Hanover Fairgrounds.
Seven product categories are recognized for the award, covering the many technologies featured at EuroBLECH, which includes some 1,550 exhibitors from 40 countries and more than 60,000 visitors. Products were evaluated based on degree of technological innovation, benefits for industry, the environment and society, cost effectiveness, and other criteria.
LVD’s Synchro-Form is revolutionary adaptive bending technology for bending large profiles. It automatically maintains angular consistency and the required geometric profile when handling, positioning and bending large parts with multiple bends. Synchro-Form overcomes the problems of accumulative error and trial-and-error bending, eliminating manual operations and ensuring precise, efficient bending. With Synchro-Form, production times can be reduced up to 50%, depending on part geometry, thickness and length.
