B3 - Press brakes - Products - Salvagnini Group

Change perspective, think results

Regardless of the level of automation chosen from the four available, the B3 remains the solution with the smallest footprint currently available on the market.

Product overview

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.

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

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

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

  • Backgauges

    Available in four different types, from 4 to 9 axis, for maximum production flexibility. Each backgauge comprises an extremely rigid ram. All axes slide on linear guides to guarantee accuracy and sturdiness.

  • Sliding doors

    Attached to the press brake structure, they allow easy handling of tools and workpieces, without increasing the machine’s footprint.

  • Front sliding shelves

    Pair of front sliding shelves with capacity of 120 kg that support the sheet of metal being machined. They guarantee ergonomic use and ease of handling for the workpieces.

  • FLW sheet follower

    The FLW sheet follower is optional, recommended for bending particularly large or heavy pieces. Each FLW has a maximum capacity of 150 kg.

Scalable automation

To significantly increase the availability of the press brake, Salvagnini developed 4 automation devices: ATA and ATA.L automatically adjust the length of the upper and lower tools, MVM automatically adapts the die opening, AU-TO automatically sets up the tools.

AMS: angle measurement system

Laser system that detects variations in the bending angle due to sheet metal springback. Angle measurement can even be performed in a single point, regardless of the length of the press brake, for shorter cycles. It allows measurement recording and active monitoring for greater productivity.

S-CROWNING

The adaptive mechanical crowning system ensures consistent bending along the entire bending length, even if the parameters change, without operator intervention. 

FACE

Intelligent design, intuitive and easy-to-use: FACE is the Salvagnini human-machine interface, which minimizes the operational complexity of the press brake.

Direct Drive

Ram movements are driven by two independent direct-drive brushless motors, which allow both fast approach and fast return movements to be achieved, with speeds as high as 250 mm/s.

KERS: energy recovery system

B3 can be equipped with a proprietary system that recovers energy waste and reuses it in subsequent steps, accelerating and reaching higher speeds with the same consumption.

Industry 4.0

Digital transformation and Industry 4.0 are key topics for staying competitive on the market. When adopted, they can implement and manage complex, integrated, highly automated high-performance systems, and can help to develop simple solutions that require no structural changes to the production layout, making the world of smart manufacturing much more accessible.

  • ATA

    The ATA (Automatic Tool Adjuster) device is used to change and automatically adjust the upper bending tool length, saving time and increasing production efficiency.

  • ATA.L

    The ATA.L device, for the lower tools, is the ideal solution for kit production, as it allows parts of different lengths to be bent in sequence.

  • MVM

    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.

  • AU-TO

    The AU-TO automatic tool change device 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.

Intelligent system, constant quality

Practically everything you ever wanted to know about the B3 press brake, satisfactorily explained.

Productivity
Adaptability
Integrability

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

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

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.

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

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).

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.

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).

Software

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 press brake. LINKS allows real-time monitoring of the machine’s performance and independent analysis.
