Salvagnini Panel Bender

Flexible and intelligent automated panel bending, delivering precise and repeatable bending for a quality product, every time.

What is a Salvagnini panel bender?

Where a traditional press brake uses a single tool from above to force the material into a lower ‘V’, creating the form, a Salvagnini Panel Bender can apply an up or downstroke, with independent tools, while a manipulator moves the part into position.

This automated process eliminates the need to change tools to create a different form, and the requirement to flip the part to bend in a different orientation.  

Productivity and flexibility in metal bending

The features of a Salvagnini P2 deliver obvious benefits in terms of productivity when compared to conventional bending on a press brake through its automatic bending and handling cycles.

ombining this productivity with the P2’s flexibility in terms of universal bending tools, this technology can deliver up to 17 folds per minute with extreme accuracy.

Adaptive automation in action

With its integrated advanced sensors, the Salvagnini P2 measures the actual thickness, size and strength of the material and detects any variation. The data is fed into the bending formula which defines the correct force required to create the bend, guaranteeing precise and repeatable bending for a quality finished product.

Unlocking design and commercial improvements

With the capabilities the Salvagnini panel bender offers, Unifabs helps  customers to unlock opportunities through refinements in design, ensuring products are produced in the most efficient and cost effective manner.  For instance, through the use of this metal bending machine we may be able to combine multiple parts into one fully folded piece, or remove additional processes such as riveting and welding. These changes to how products are produced deliver visible advantages in terms of product appearance, alongside commercial benefits, allowing us to remove processes, reduce lead times and produce high quality parts for less.

Flexible and intelligent automated panel bending offering precision and repeatability.

The P2 is the ultimate Salvagnini panel bender, natively combining productivity, with its automatic bending and handling cycles, flexibility, with its universal bending tools and versatility with its ability to perform both positive and negative, flattened and radius bends. Equipped with an automatic blankholder, the P2 doesn't require re-tooling and completes an average of 17 bends per minute.

Combining the Salvagnini Panel Bender with 8 Amada Press Brakes creates one of the most advanced, versatile, and productive sheet metal bending cells available in the UK.
