Press-brake and panel bender: complementary technologies

Press-brake: A bending central force is generated by a moving part (punch) between two constraining reactions generated by a fixed part (die). 

Panel bender: The bending force is lateral and generated by an oscillating part (blade). The constraining reactions are generated by two parts which strongly lock the sheetClick here to see how a panel bender works

Developed to fit in 8sqm, designed to produce with just 3 kW and optimized to astound you with its bending speed, the P1 is the solution Salvagnini is offering as an alternative to traditional bending.
