Salvagnini has upgraded its all electric P1 panel bender to create an adaptive machine for flexible kit and single piece part production. The machine is being showcased at FABTECH 2016 in Las Vegas, NV.

With up to three times the throughput of a press brake and zero setup time, customers will find the P1 panel bender to be an indispensible addition to their manufacturing infrastructure. The P1 offers the distinctive features of Salvagnini’s larger panel benders: automatic blankholder setup, universal tooling, the briefest of cycle times, and programming software for 2D drawings and for 3D models that adds built-in skill and craftsmanship to the part forming process. If you’re capable of loading a blank and unloading a finished part, you can produce a high quality product on a Salvagnini P1 panel bender.

New features of the P1 include, but are not limited to:

  • Asymmetric Auxiliary Bending capability for making interrupted bends of up to 25”
  • Automatic Blankholder Adjustment (ABA) found on Salvagnini’s larger machines is now available on the 2016 P1
  • A Last Bend Down capability comes standard on the 2016 model
  • All-electric operation

Easy to own, easy to operate and easy to maintain, the new P1 panel bender reliabily forms both simple and complex parts of the highest quality with no operator intervention. Setups take just four seconds. Individual bends only two seconds. Only 3 kW of power is consumed during operation and takes up only 8 m (86 sq ft) of floor space.
