LVD launches new line of panel benders

LVD has added panel benders to its portfolio of flexible solutions for sheet metal processing. The new product line encompasses a range of models, including high-speed panel bending systems. LVD launched the new line at the Blechexpo exhibition towards the end of 2023, with the unveiling of the PB 21/12 automatic panel bending machine.

The new panel benders expand LVD’s scope as a solutions provider, offering users a broad array of metal fabricating products from a single source. Panel bending machines can process large and complex geometries quickly and efficiently in medium to high volumes. For certain applications, panel bending is faster and more efficient than traditional die bending.

LVD says it panel benders are engineered as cost-effective machines that it can customise to help users expand capacity and performance. The servo-driven design requires minimal service and is nearly maintenance-free. A universal set of folding blades permits processes a wide range of profiles and bends. Users can form most profiles using a single set of tooling. LVD says the panel benders boast an output capacity that is two to three times that of comparable systems.

Panel bending technology is suitable for producing large electrical cabinets, panels and cabinet components, shelving, clean rooms, steel furniture, architectural building panels, photovoltaic components, trailer side panels, lighting, and other industrial equipment panels featuring complex geometries with radius bends, short side lengths and narrow profiles.

LVD will initially offer three panel bender models: PB 21/12, PB 25/12 and PB 32/12 to handle panel sizes up to 3200 x 1250 mm.
