CNC Turret Punch Press Efficiently Handles Large, Oversized WorkpiecesFebruary 1, 2012
LVD Strippit, Akron, NY, introduces the Strippit P-1525 20-metric-ton CNC turret punch press, designed to efficiently handle large or oversized workpieces to 60 by 98.4 in. Larger sheets can be processed with clamp repositioning. The press delivers as many as 270 hits/min. on 1-in. centers, and 600 hits/min. in nibble mode. The machine provides a ±0.004-in. finished part accuracy and ±0.002-in.finished part repeatability. Fabricators can use the P-1525 to process mild steel to 0.135 in. thick and aluminum to 0.250 in.
A servo-driven hydraulic ram offers control of ram position; parameters can easily be accessed and changed to provide optimal forming characteristics. The advanced hydraulic drive system reportedly minimizes noise and shock to increase machine longevity and reduce tool wear.
The P-1525 features a 21-station thick-style turret with all turret stations keyed for optimum tool load flexibility. Every station accepts shaped or round punches and dies, reducing setup time.
The machine comes standard with three 2-in. auto-index stations. Clearance between the upper and lower turret (0.984 in.) allows production of forms such as lances, louvers, embossments or card guides.LVD Strippit: 800-828-1527; www.lvdgroup.com
