B3 -Press brake 4.0

The ideal press brake

for dynamic production

The B3 was designed by combining the features and benefits of electric and hydraulic press brakes with Salvagnini’s in-depth knowledge of automation, software, mechanics and electronics.

Flexible automation

The automation devices available (ATA, MVM, AU-TO) combine productivity and flexibility, both for kit and batch-one production.

Sustainable productivity

The technical solutions adopted (Direct Drive and KERS) allow it to respect both people and the environment, without reducing productivity. The architecture increases the machine's versatility, relaxing part geometry constraints.

Adaptive technology

The integrated adaptive technologies (S-CROWNING, AMS, TFC) make the system intelligent, eliminate scrap and part correction, and expand the range of products which can be produced.

Connectivity 4.0

The proprietary LINKS, VALUES and OPS software establish communication between the system and the company departments involved in the production flow.

Change perspective,

think results!

Thanks to Salvagnini’s unique solutions, the press brake can adapt itself in setting up and managing the tools on the basis of what it needs to produce. Adopting scalable and modular automation in press bending means significant improvements in machine availability, extending its independence and flexibility.


How to make press brake productivity independent of batch size?

ATA/ATA-LT and ATA/MVM are proprietary Salvagnini automation solutions for tool management. They allow kit and batch-one production on press brakes, while keeping high productivity.

How to make the machine independent of the operator?

AU-TO is Salvagnini's patented automatic upper and lower tool changer. It sets up the press brake, guaranteeing it complete independence and efficiency in applying the best strategies according to the production flow.

How to reduce environmental impact while maximizing production?

The architecture and technical solutions adopted (Direct Drive and KERS) allow the B3 press brake to respect both people and the environment, without reducing productivity.

How to make production independent of material changes?

MAC2.0 is the set of adaptive technologies (S-CROWNING, AMS, TFC) embedded in the press brake. It makes the system intelligent, eliminating scrap and part correction, widening the range of products which can be produced.

How to adapt the machine to production requirements?

Each B3 press brake offers extensive configurability: options and accessories facilitate operation and part handling, enhance the versatility of the press brake or improve its ergonomics (locking devices, backgauges, sheet followers).

How to integrate the press brake into the factory?

All B3 press brakes can be equipped with the OPS process software, which enables communication between the machine and the company ERP. They are also ready to be connected to LINKS, the IoT solution for condition monitoring.

How to automatize bending?

Thanks to their extensive expertise in systems and automation, and wide application experience in sheet metal processing, Salvagnini's specialists are able to help the customer to choose the best solution, whether it be a stand-alone press brake, a robotized bending cell (ROBOformER), a flexible bending cell (FlexCell) or an automatic factory (AJS).
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.
