LVD introduces new design press brakes

LVD announces a new generation of the PPEC series hydraulic press brakes. PPEC models up to 350 tons now feature a new modern and ergonomic design with integrated status lighting. In addition, the touch control for all PPEC machines, ranging from 35 to 640 ton, has been upgraded to LVD's latest graphical icon driven TOUCH-B controller.

Ergonomic design
The new design with built-in status lighting gives the PPEC an elegant appearance in line with the Easy-Form® press brakes. The status LED lights indicate the machine’s operation status, enabling more effective shop management for higher throughput. An optional LED lighting system illuminates the back gauge and front work zone areas to provide better operator visibility.

Intuitive touch screen control
The touch control has been upgraded from the CADMAN® Lite control to the full-featured, icon driven TOUCH-B control. Working with TOUCH-B is easy and intuitive, no matter the skill level of the operator. With minimal input he can create and simulate 3D-designs on a 19” touch screen. Additionally the controller is compatible with LVD's offline bending software CADMAN®-B.

Press brakes equipped with the TOUCH-B control also feature a jog button on the
foot pedal, allowing the operator to ‘jog’ individual axes of the machine for fine adjustments.
