LVD Company nv has acquired COMPAC S.r.l. of Urbino, Italy, an industrial automation solutions provider. The acquisition expands LVD’s portfolio of automation systems for flat sheet and tube laser cutting machinery at a time when sheet metal fabricators are increasingly automating their production processes to improve overall efficiency.
Two custom bending cells each comprised of an LVD Easy-Form press brake and Fanuc robots have automated the production of complex formed parts for KUIPERS CNC-Blechtechnik – parts that could not be manufactured using a standard modular solution.
LVD introduces new automation offerings for its Phoenix FL‑4020 and Phoenix FL‑6020 large-format fiber laser cutting machines, including options for an automated load/unload system and a range of Compact Tower (CT-L) solutions for the Phoenix FL‑4020.
