Salvagnini Robotica – Everything is press brake oriented!
Salvagnini Robotica, Salvagnini‘s new robotic applications project: a modern plant that is innovative in manifold respects, also organizationally and logistically speaking, aimed at making this new Brendola facility the centre of excellence for press brake bending. Ribbon-cutting ceremony for Salvagnini Robotica, the Salvagnini Group’s new division for the development and manufacture of press brakes and associated robotic applications.
Flexibility and efficiency for smaller production batches
Ever-smaller production batches and increasingly extreme turnaround times mean production changes are continuous and frenetic, forcing companies to become flexible and efficient at every stage of the production process, especially downline from cutting, which has reached ever-higher levels of performance in recent years.
A longstanding advocate of innovation geared towards providing solutions to real manufacturing requirements in line with market demands, Salvagnini was quick to see this situation unfolding and thus embarked on a growth path that has culminated in the birth of Salvagnini Robotica, the plant dedicated to the design and manufacture of B3 press brakes and relevant robotic applications.
An innovative and Kinetic plant
Salvagnini has always been a standard-bearer of technology designed to produce tangible manufacturing advantages and meet the market’s expectations, often succeeding in anticipating market trends.
Salvagnini Robotica is the very epitome of this, namely a specialized facility designed and purpose built to provide a targeted response to the issues and demands of a precise market segment. The Brendola plant follows a manufacturing approach that is closely related to and, in some ways, similar to the group’s own approach, thus ensuring the same level of quality that has always been associated with the Salvagnini brand, even though – given the type of product handled here – it adopts specific guidelines.
Everything is press brake oriented
The new plant has a factory floor space of 4,000 sq metres devoted entirely, for the duration of this startup stage, to the manufacture B3 manual press brakes, which currently come in 14 models, from 2 to 5 metres and from 60 to 400 tons.
Once the preset target of around a hundred machines/year has been reached, the next step will be the production of robotic applications integrated with the press brakes – Roboformers – which are still being developed in Sarego for the time being.
