LVD focuses on cost-effective automation at MACH 2008

Focusing of cost effective automationLeading sheet metalworking equipment manufacturer LVD will be ‘focusing’ on ‘Cost-Effective’ automation and integrated sheet metalworking solutions for the theme of its show this year. LVD will exhibit two new machines never exhibited in the UK before, including one world debut.

Making its world debut the new LVD RoboCell automated robotic bending cell offers affordable automated bending with the combination of LVD’s extensive press brake bending technology and Kuka robotic material handling together with an integrated offline LVD CADMAN® software solution. Competitively priced against other robotic bending cells in the market RoboCell is easy to operate and program and is ideal for companies looking for affordable  automation of the bending of small to medium sized components. Flexible and intuitive RoboCell enables the operator to move from ‘Art to Part’ faster and with less interventions than other conventional robotic bending cells.

Complementing the new RoboCell the LVD Orion 3015 plus CNC laser cutting machine complete with automated autoload unit makes its UK debut.  Ideally suited for subcontractors or OEM’s that require a compact and value minded automated laser cutting solution, the Orion 3015 Plus Autoload provides cost-effective automated laser cutting in a robust, reliable and compact package.

LVD will also exhibit its leading CADMAN® offline software solutions including CADMAN B 3D - Bending, CADMAN P – Punching, and CADMAN L – Laser cutting, demonstrating how LVD can uniquely combine the manufacturing processes providing customers with the fastest route from ‘Art to Part’.

Chris Phillips, Managing Director of LVD Ltd comments “Affordable mid-level automation is becoming increasing important for sheet metalworking companies these days. The balance of should you automate or should you add labour is an on going struggle for most sheet metalworking companies. We are looking forward to discussing and demonstrating to new and existing clients how we can provide them with an affordable and cost-effective automated solution for their sheet metalworking shop.”
