LVD is named after its founding fathers, Jacques Lefebvre, Marc Vanneste and Robert Dewulf. Established in the 1950s, LVD is a leading manufacturer of sheet metalworking equipment, including laser cutting systems, punch presses, press brakes, guillotine shears and automation systems, integrated to and supported by its CADMAN® software suite. Load-Assist (LA) is one of their automation systems that can be added to a laser cutting system in order to increase productivity.
The Load-Assist automatically loads material and, during unmanned production, unloads cut sheets to an unloading station or a conveyor. This solution offers a highly reliable, cost-effective automated process without operator intervention. Solid software is required for this automated handling.
