FMS System

Pioneer in the FMS

The S4+P4 line is one of Salvagnini’s most popular solutions. It punches, shears and bends sheet metal totally automatically. The first prototype dates back to 1979 and is a landmark in the development of systems for integrated logistics. It remains the most efficient flexible manufacturing system (FMS) on the market today.

Since the beginning the S4+P4 was and remains the most efficient flexible manufacturing system (FMS) on the market.

Automatic job shops: not for mass production

Salvagnini’s expertise in integrating sheet metal processing machines is well-recognized. The first totally automatic flexible factory (AJS) for lights-out production of electrical cabinets was supplied to America back in 1984. It is just one of the numerous examples that demonstrate Salvagnini’s ability to offer and produce flexible systems that are both automatic and integrated. These solutions are specifically designed to support the latest production techniques such as kit production, lean production, unmanned production, JIT production and batch one.

A concrete step towards the factory of the future

FlexCell offers the best of both worlds, combining the features of a Salvagnini panel bender and a press-brake and is the only solution of its kind on the market for getting the most out of bending.

Efficient flexibility: The new concept of a FMC, flexible manufacturing cell.
Creativity with no limits: Complementary technologies to achieve the widest bending feasibility.
Guided operation: A complete management system thanks to operator coaching.
Fast investment return: The synergy of technologies orchestrated by OPS-FlexCell creates high added value.


MV Automatic tray store: world-class integrated logistics

Salvagnini can boast a long experience of integrating sheet metal processing machines. The first flexible panel production line in 1978 and the first automatic lights-out factory implementation in 1985 demonstrate just how thoroughly focused Salvagnini has always been on offering flexible, automated and integrated sheet metal processing systems comprising specifically designed products.

Salvagnini MV automatic tray stores act as a backbone for the entire factory, coordinating and moving automatically the materials needed for the different machining processes just in time, reducing transfer costs and times, while increasing machine efficiency.

Thanks to the Salvagnini’s proprietary software the material is scheduled and sequenced through the punching, shearing, laser cutting and bending operations in a totally automated and integrated production environment.

Panel Bender
