B3 - Press brake 4.0
First level of automation
The ATA (Automatic Tool Adjuster) device is used to change and automatically adjust the upper bending tool length, saving time and increasing production efficiency. Changeover is fast, taking just a few seconds, and programming is simple and intuitive.
Second level of automation
The ATA.L device, for the lower tools, is the ideal solution for kit production, as it allows parts of different thicknesses to be bent in sequence.
Third level of automation
The MVM option, the variable opening die which is an alternative to ATA.L, automatically adapts the opening of the V on the basis of the program and allows materials with different thicknesses and/or bending radii to be bent. It does not require manual die set-up, increasing the productivity and flexibility of the press brake.
Fourth level of automation
Salvagnini's fourth level of automation is represented by the AU-TO automatic tool change device. AU-TO does not disable the operation of the ATA devices, but rather prepares the machine by maximizing the potential of the automatic tool set-up and applying the best strategies on the basis of the production flow. It reduces set-up times and increases the availability of the B3 press brake: the movements occur outside the bending area, and their impact on the added value activities is limited. The tool magazine, covered and located in the rear section of the press brake, can hold up to 24 m of tools without requiring any segmentation. The operations are rapid and take place in-cycle and in masked time, contributing to further increasing the efficiency of the technology.
