CNC adjustable Vee dieFebruary, 27 2012
LVD Strippit now offers the Vari-VEE V30-140 CNC adjustable Vee die for its complete range of PPEB and Easy-Form precision press brakes. The Vari-VEE V30-140 complements the company’s heavy-duty Vari-VEE option. This smaller version Vee die offers the benefits of a variable and adjustable bottom Vee die to a broader range of LVD Strippit press brake models from 320 to 1000 tons and up to 315 in. in length.
The Vari-VEE die provides automatic adjustment of the V-width in increments of 0.39 in., reducing setup time and providing flexibility for bending operations.
The Vari-VEE variable die allows the bending of sharp angles up to 50 degrees for the maximum V-width. This is especially critical when forming high strength materials because of significant spring back. The radius on the V-die is a hardened insert which is machined with LVD’s patented STONE compound curve for optimal rolling and friction reducing properties.
The Vari-VEE V30-140 is suitable for applications that demand bending of different thicknesses of materials; frequent die changes; bending thick materials with large Vee widths or different radii on the same component, as well as bending high strength materials which tend to crack while bending.
