VLB bending machines are at the forefront of automation and control; the VLB 3D software is developed by an experienced IT team. This department is in direct contact with the technical department and end users.

For example, we continuously implement improvements and innovations for both bending performance and ease of use. Programming is very intuitive and file import and export can be performed directly with all major CAD design software.

The VLB 3D software is developed in-house by a dedicated IT department, which is in direct contact with the technical service department and all users. The data collected helps us to evolve and find answers to constant challenges. Each new update can be installed on existing machines.

  • Direct 3D graphics programming in XYZ, LRA and import of CAD files, with problem analysis and correction suggestions.
  • Collision simulation.
  • Cycle time simulation.
  • Automatic correction of elasticity and calibration of the bending workpiece with calculation of the actual required length.
  • Offline installation and connectivity with peripherals.
  • Connectivity with measuring arms in combination with automatic correction.
  • Feasibility analysis, modification and export of the file for use in the design department.
  • Remote online help

All actions are monitored in real time; production time, tool change time, energy consumption etc. This information (or other information that the customer means is relevant) is automatically collected and stored for analysis and optimisation by the operator, a specific (design) department or ERP software.

With the resulting information, the customer can, for example, optimise material management, planned maintenance work, budgeting, feasibility checks or the purchase of raw materials.

The EB series is at the forefront of automation and control. The VLB 3D software is developed by an experienced IT team that works daily on improvements and innovations in terms of machine performance as well as ease of use.
