An extremely efficient hydraulic punching unit combined with table accelerations
and speeds that match high hit rates make punching and forming operations highly
productive and lower the cost of per part production for prototypes, short or long run
operations. Punch sheets up to 60? x 120? (1500 x 3000 mm) without reposition in
0.135? (8 mm) material.
The Pullmax Series includes standalone machines and automated systems. Pullmax
520, 530, 720 and 730 punch presses offer an array of capabilities to maximize the
value added to components during the punching process.

Pullmax and LVD Strippit Offer Compact Automation

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Productivity and flexibility are two main requirements in today’s manufacturing industry. Higher demands on efficiency require more parts to be produced with a higher degree of automation. One decisive factor for unmanned production is material availability, with this feature the machine can produce several different parts in two different material types unmanned.

 Pullmax and LVD Strippit Offer Compact Automation

The Pullmatic 720/520 can be supplied with a fully automatic material handling system. The compact system will handle raw material and skeletons as well as punched and formed parts, on a compact layout of 70m² (753 sqf) including the punching machine. The handling system is fully integrated in the Pullmax O600 control system to ensure maximum flexibility and productivity. The modular design ensures the production requirements today and in the future.

Pullmax X97 Beveling machine

Monday, July 18th, 2011
The Pullmax beveling machine functions basically the same way as roller shears, utilizing only one cutter. The shearing action actually feeds the work piece automatically through the machine. The method can be used for X, V, Y and K-form joints.
Bevelling Machine Pullmax X97 Beveling machine
The degree of bevel angle is infinitely variable from 25° up to 55°. Motorized and adjusted by push-button control, a high degree of accuracy is achieved and is easily read on a graduated dial. The capacity of the machine covers up to 50 mm thick plate and 25 mm width of bevel in normal steel plate rated at 390 N/mm² tensile strength. The speed of bevelling is between 1,5 and 3,1 m/min., depending on the width and degree of angle for the bevel being produced. Since the bevel is achieved without heat, the cut surface is clean and unaffected by thermal stress. This makes the X97 suitable for certain grades of stainless steel as well as aluminum.Choose the type of cutter to suit your type of work. Cutters for the X97 are available in three types of serrations. The medium serrated cutter can be used for most jobs, but the machine can be fitted with coarse or fine serrated cutters as required. Coarse serrations are used for larger bevel widths in heavy material and fine serrations are intended for use in lighter work with smaller bevel widths up to 15 mm. Cutters are made from hardened alloy tool steel.

The Pullmax X97 offers superior versatility. With motorized adjustment of beveling angles, choice of cutters, stationary or suspended operation, a full range of accessories, and pinpoint accuracy for a variety of shapes and sizes of work pieces. The PULLMAX X97 fits the work piece rather than forcing the work piece to fit the machine.

Bending on the Pullmax

Friday, July 8th, 2011

The bending process is similar to other automated panel bending systems where the blank is clamped and the flange is wiped up. However instead of the typical wiping tool a “pacman” tool is used. In the drawing below the green element is a spring, the rest is self explanatory.

Bend angles, flange lengths and flange orientation (rotary axes) are fully programmable. Unique part envelope allows automation for many parts that do not fit other systems.


Bend Flanges up to 75 mm or 3 inches

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Are you manufacturing brackets, electronic chassis and assemblies?  Do you require timely press Brake operations? Eliminate second operations!  Save Money!

pullmax bending Bend Flanges up to 75 mm or 3 inches3 29 2011 11 09 12 AM Bend Flanges up to 75 mm or 3 inches

Parts such as brackets, electronic chassis and assemblies can be completed in the  Pullmatic 720/520 punching machines instead of adding 1 or 2 operations in other machine types such as press brakes.

The Pullmatic 720/520 is designed for exceptional forming and bending capacity. With advanced PCU (Punch Unit Control) software the machine can be utilized in forming and bending operations that traditionally has been performed in press brakes. By decreasing the number of operations and finish parts with less handling and setup´s part value can in some cases be increased with up to 75%.

Forming operations such as knockouts, louvers and countersinks will be performed with high accuracy. The machines also have the capacity of bending flanges up to 75mm/3″ high. These bends can be performed in a variety of angles. Even parts that are not located in 0 or 90 degrees on the sheet can be formed, since the OptiBend feature includes auto index. Internal as well as external bends can be formed on the parts.

The Pullmatic 720/520 bends at least three times higher than most other punching machines.

  • Punches, forms, marks, taps and cuts
  • Reduces the cost per part
  • Flexible automation
  • Pullmax is now part of the LVD Strippit family of fabrication equipment.
