P4- Automatic panel bender


The press is the functional heart of the Salvagnini P4 panel bender. It is composed of:

  • blankholder tool (1);
  • bladeholder (2) that holds two universal bending tools: the upper (2a) and lower (2b) blades;
  • the counterblade (3) which firmly grips the blank during bending cycle.

Panel benders are equipped with a universal tool, named blankholder, which changes its configuration according to the dimensions of the panel to bend,  and which thus eliminates the need of tool change. The length adjustment of the blankholder, named ABA in Salvagnini, is automatic.


Precision and versatility.

Sheets are handled, gripped and rotated by the manipulator which sheet movement throughout the entire processing cycle is both fast and totally automatic.

Universal bending tools 

P4 is equipped with universal bending tools, which do not require set-up times and which automatically adapt to the geometry of the panel; thus they become safety insurance for the operator and a guarantee of productivity.

Centering: a single cycle in masked time.

The sheet centering allows to obtain panels always with exact outer dimensions thanks to the controlled references.

Blank is centered only once, at the beginning.

In this way, cycle time and any dimensional errors are reduced, because any deviation from specifications is absorbed by the first bend.

By eliminating error, waste is eliminated.
