Solutions for Steel Service Centers and Job Shops

Steel Service Centers and Job Shops require maximum flexibility to maximize the wide range of production.

Whatever the job might be, you are going to be facing the following issues: 

  • Difficulties in hiring skilled operators 
  • Too much time spent on setting up the machine in between jobs 
  • Operator safety concerns 
  • Sky-high raw material costs 
  • Downstream processing issues – most often in the welding department due to inconsistent bending performance 


    The rigid machine frame ensures high precision during the full machine life span, 30+ years

    At the end of the day, your goals should be

    • The ability to quickly set up a machine when switching jobs 
    • To make a good part the first time (and every subsequent time) regardless of variables in material 
    • To reduce cycle time 
    • To improve operator working conditions 
    • Reduce labor costs by eliminating personnel (especially concerning material handling) where possible by using innovative automation. 

    Ursviken offers a variety of customizable bending solutions.

    Unique Ursviken solution for your one-of-a-kind needs 

    Ursviken offers a variety of customizable bending solutions. The Ursviken Optima series of press brakes are all custom-engineered and built to the customer’s specifications.

    How Can Ursviken Help You Achieve These Goals? 

    Multiple front and back gauges to make process quicker – 3 in front and 3 in the back. 

    The rigid machine frame ensures high precision during the full machine life span, 30+ years, allowing you to produce current and future high demanding products for a long period of time. 

    Fully CNC controlled Variable Die Tool allows changing die opening to be made directly from the control system within seconds. 

    FlexiCrown can compensate for local thickness deviations in the metal and uneven wear on the upper and lower tools. Resulting in a more accurate bend angle across the entire length of the machine. 

    Large stroke and daylight/ tool space gives flexibility to produce all types of products

    Heavy duty CNC lift swing (sheet follower). 

    Possibility to add crane arm mounts. 

    Parking stations for front equipment give room for bending complex products. 

    Additional space for special tools with lifting bars – heavy VDTs can roll out to the side. 

    Back gauge frame can be lowered to floor level to make more space for the profile. 

    Heavy duty tool clamping UMV 200 for very large tools. 

    Machines can be designed to fit an existing foundation or to accommodate height restrictions. 

    Choose the right machine.

    The product of choice is Optima. Optima is available from 400 ton up to 5000+ ton and in length 4-20 m in single design.
