LVD releases robotic bending system with ATC

LVD Strippit introduced Ulti-Form, a new robotic bending system featuring an automated tool changing (ATC) press brake. The system features a 135-ton press brake designed using the ToolCell platform integrated with an industrial robot. The press brake houses a built-in tooling warehouse and uses a gripper mechanism in the machine’s backgauge fingers to change tools. As the robot picks the first workpiece from the input stack and centers it, the press brake completes the tool change. Ulti-Form handles parts from 1.9 in. by 3.9 in. up to 47 in. by 31 in. weighing up to 55 lbs.
