Small batches, short lead times, increasingly complex parts drive the need for flexible manufacturing. The Strippit PL from LVD Co. (Gullegem, Belgium) combines the punching and forming capabilities of the company’s Strippit PX or V Series punch press with the speed and versatility of fiber laser cutting to complete multiple processes on a single machine. Three punch-laser models are available: the single-head Strippit PX 1530-L and Strippit V 1530-L in thick- and thin-turret configurations.
The combination of technologies eliminates processes, can improve part quality, reduces production time and material handling, and lowers cost per part in both small lot sizes and high-volume runs. The Strippit PL can laser cut intricate shapes and process materials up to 10 mm, punch holes up to 6.35 mm, and produce forms and bends up to 90 mm long and up to 75 mm high (on the Strippit PX 1530-L).
The punch press handles high-speed punching and forming operations. The fiber laser delivers high-quality cutting of outer contours, intricate inner contours and can be used for material etching.
The 3 kW or 4 kW solid-state fiber laser has minimal components for low maintenance requirements.
The Strippit PX single-head 20-ton punch press can punch, form, bend and tap, forming flanges up to 75 mm high, countersinking and scribing with top productivity. Twenty indexable tool stations hold any size tool up to a maximum diameter of 90 mm.
The Strippit V thick-turret model features a 48-station turret; the Strippit V thin-turret configuration has a 40-station turret. Both 30-ton machines are equipped with four programmable 88.9-mm indexable stations and are designed to handle high tonnage applications.
The Strippit PL can process a 3,048-mm-by-1,524-mm workpiece without repositioning. A 406-mm-by-1,524-mm work chute evacuates laser cut parts. Rack-and-pinion drive system eliminates backlash and provides accurate positioning.
Automation increases productivity. LVD’s comprehensive range of MOVit automation systems include highly configurable tower automation system (TAS) and warehouse automation system (WAS) storage solutions and the compact tower (CT-P) for loading, unloading and storing raw materials, skeletons and finished parts.
