How does a panel bender work?

The upper and lower blades are the two tools featuring interpolated controlled movement and responsible for bending.

The automatic blankholder works simultaneously with the blades and counterblade to bend and clamp the sheet accurately and effectively. It adapts the tool length according to the size of the part being produced during the cycle, without machine down times or manual re-tooling. The tool profile allows inward bends up to 45 mm.

The counterblade helps clamp the sheet during the cycle.

Operating mode: simple, quick and lean

Bending on each side of the sheet is achieved thanks to the controlled interpolated movements of the blades.

Flexible automation

Upper and lower blade, counterblade and blankholder are the four universal tools used to process the whole range of thicknesses and machinable materials, from 0.4 to 3.2 mm, during the cycle and without machine down times or manual re-tooling.

Proprietary bending formula

Developed over the years, the bending formula defines the force and manages the movements of the universal tools, analyzing different parameters in real time, including deflections, temperature and thickness, guaranteeing the precision, repeatability and quality of the finished product.

Automatic manipulator: fast and accurate

Quickly and fully automatically, this moves, handles, grips and rotates the sheet metal throughout the whole machining cycle. It requires no manual interventions during the cycle. The operator positions the sheet metal on the worktable and collects the product after bending, performing only the loading and unloading operations.


MAC3.0 detects any differences in the mechanical characteristics of the material compared to their nominal value during the cycle, adapting the movements of the bending unit and the manipulator to compensate them.


Intelligent design, intuitive and easy-to-use: FACE is the Salvagnini human-machine interface for the whole product range.


P-Robot is a new application combining a Salvagnini panel bender with a robot to produce kits, batches, and single parts autonomously.


Industry has changed: flexibility and efficiency are fundamental requirements for managing increasingly smaller batches or rapid item turnover rate.  And developments in technology have in some way upset the balance between workloads, with increasingly fast systems which however need to be guided by more and more specific machine programs, the generation of which is increasingly time-consuming. This is why software is increasingly crucial to improving the efficiency of machinery.

STREAM is Salvagnini’s answer to the modern industrial context, a programming suite that improves reactivity and reduces costs, operating errors and process inefficiencies.

OPS is the Salvagnini modular production management software which optimizes the entire production process, exchanging real-time information between the machinery and the factory ERP/MRP.

Salvagnini’s IoT solution, increases the global efficiency of the panel bender. LINKS allows real-time monitoring of the machine’s performance and independent analysis.
