What sets Salvagnini Panel Benders apart from other traditional sheet metal forming methods is the accuracy, speed and flexibility thanks to Salvagnini’s use of precision controlled centering alignment in combination with a proprietary bending formula that guarantees both consistent product quality as well as efficient production runs; exceeding expectations across all metrics.

The reality of this configuration is not just greater energy efficiency but also tremendous savings on valuable floor space thanks to its incredible compact size.

Simple, quick, and lean operation

Salvagnini Panel Benders offer a simple, quick and lean operation that makes it the ideal sheet metal bending tool for companies looking for precision manufacturing solutions.

The P2 panel bender achieves bending on each side of the sheet through interpolation controlled movements of the forming tools, enabling rapid yet precise production with consistent results.

The intuitive interface also allows users to quickly input parameters directly into the machine, meaning you can get right back to creating complex shapes in no time. This intelligent system ensures superior control over centering accuracy during bending operations as well as offering a proprietary formula designed especially for near perfect bends.

Controlled centering

The Salvagnini P2 Panel Bender, used by Atlas Manufacturing, is equipped with the capability of controlled centering – a feature that sets it apart from other sheet metal forming systems.

Controlled centering allows for consistent quality by minimizing cycle time and ensuring precision in the bending process. In addition to reducing labor requirements and simplifying the set-up process, this technology also increases productivity in batch-one or kit productions.

The benefits of controlled centering go beyond just efficiency; thanks to its proprietary bending formula, it produces superior results with traditional bend geometry as well as larger radius bends formed by bump forming —all without sacrificing accuracy.

Proprietary bending formula

The Salvagnini P2 Panel Bender offers its users a truly unique and proprietary bending formula for calculating bending parameters and checking press-brake set-ups. This exclusive software uses mathematics, physics, and mechanics principles to optimize the movements of the machine’s universal tooling, providing accurate results while reducing time and costs.

The variables within the proprietary formula can be adjusted easily in order to get different angles with just one click of a mouse. As compared to traditional set-ups using mechanical methods such as correction factors or compensation tables, this system yields far more consistent results since it measures in real time different parameters such as speed during movement, force applied on bent profile sections or clamp position variations when forming parts along multiple bends curves.

What’s more is that thanks to its flexibility, users of these panel benders can now customize their projects according to specific requirements without having any concerns about accuracy or precision!

Intelligent system for consistent quality

The Salvagnini P2 Panel Bender utilizes an intelligence system along with its proprietary bending formula to ensure consistent quality and accuracy during sheet metal bending process. This proprietary formula continuously monitors and adjusts the bending parameters, adapting to different panel geometries and thicknesses for optimal results.

This intelligence system and proprietary bend formula eliminates the need for retooling based on bend allowance, thus saving time as well as reducing chances of errors. As a result, production becomes more efficient with increased productivity in sheet metal work for the aerospace or medical device manufacturers where precision is crucial..

Companies that produce precision Sheet Metal components like Atlas Manufacturing rely on the Salvagnini Panel Bender’s intelligent system to ensure high levels of consistency that meets their needs.
