LVD Strippit has introduced the Strippit P-1525, a 20 metric ton CNC turret punch press designed to handle large or oversized workpieces up to 60" x 98.4" (1,524 x 2,500 mm). Larger sheets can be processed with clamp repositioning.
Part of the Strippit P-Series of punch presses, the P-1525 is suitable for the processing of large panels in cellular manufacturing or job shop environments.
LVD Strippit's latest turret punch press delivers up to 270 hits per minute on 1" (25.4 mm) centers and up to 600 hits per minute in nibble mode. The machine provides a .004" (0.1 mm) finished part accuracy and .002" (0.05 mm) finished part repeatability. It processes material thicknesses up to 0.135" (3.5 mm) mild steel and up to 0.250" (6.35 mm) aluminum.
"A servo-driven hydraulic ram offers control of the ram position to achieve high punching rates," said a company spokesperson. "Parameters are easily accessed and changed to provide optimal forming characteristics. The advanced hydraulic drive system reduces noise and shock to increase machine longevity and reduce tool wear.
"A direct drive axes configuration provides tight tolerances. This design better controls both part tolerance and repeatability to eliminate backlash and wear for repeatable accuracy and reliability.
"The Strippit P-1525 features a 21-station thick-style turret with all turret stations keyed for maximum tool load flexibility. This versatile turret design allows every station to accept shaped or round punches and dies, reducing setup time."
The machine is standard with three 2" (50.8 mm) auto-index stations. Each station accepts tools up to 2" (50.8 mm) in diameter, including wheel-style or scribing tools. A full .984" (25 mm) feed clearance between the upper and lower turret allows for the production of higher forms such as lances, louvers, embossments or card guides.
"The Strippit P-1525 turret is equipped with replaceable hardened steel guide bushings for accurate punch and die alignment, eliminating the need to rebore the turret," said the spokesperson. "Hardened outboard shot pins provide precise alignment of punch and die for exceptional hole quality.
"A large tool door allows easy access to the turret for tool loading. Quick-change die holders further reduce setup time.
"The machine's frame and tool guiding system are designed to ensure punch and die alignment to provide long tool life and consistently high quality parts.
"A PC-based Fanuc control is easy to use and proven reliable. The CNC control provides powerful features such as diagnostics, offers large program storage capacity and networking capability with user friendly MMI (man-machine-interface). The control delivers features such as full color graphics, advanced 'real-time' diagnostics, increased program storage capacity and is network ready for easy transfer of programs from other computers."
Optional CADMAN programming software provides automatic unfolding of 3D SAT and IGES files, auto-nesting full support for all standard and advanced punching functions, including auto-index stations, multi-tools, standard and special punches, forming, embossing, tapping, stamping and wheel-style tools.
