Laser Measuring

Most high quality machines are accurate by design and reputation. Only Laser Central’s LVD brake press with laser measuring system can guarantee to get it right every time.

Accurate Metal Folding

The system checks for spring back and compensates the program parameter automatically. Minor variations in material quality and material thickness can lead to intolerance on folded parts.

Compensation through measurement ensures good folds every time.
