A full-color brochure from Strippit/LVD outlines the company's new SP Series press brakes. The brakes feature three powered axes - Y1, Y2, and X - with ±0.0004-in repeatability. The nine machine models are available in capacities from 25 to 120 tons. SP Series models 425, 440, and 540 reportedly are designed to meet the requirements of cell manufacturing, are portable, and engineered for high reliability and easy operation. All SP brakes have a back-gauge travel speed of 600 IPM. The machines have 16-in open heights with a 6-in stroke on the 25- and 40-ton models, which reportedly permits a large box opening. Dual proportional valves with closed-loop positioning are said to ensure accurate forming.
