On 06/2016 Mafieli s.r.o. an authorized dealer of VLM (BE) together installed the VLM CNC die with dimensions in the V opening 25 to 125 mm + additional inserts with R3 radius for a variant solution of the V opening of the VLM die from 14 to 104 mm on the press brake FARINA 800/6200 –TANDEM. So they expanded theirs options for fast tool machine adjustment for the new custom manufacturing.

VLM CNC die is divided into two separate units, that allows you to work separately on each press-brake with a different V opening (with different dimensions of the die), or together with the same dimension for tandem with a total length of 2x 6200 mm.
Instalation of VLMCNC lead to the substantial reduction in set-up time from 180 minutes to just one minute (55 sec).
