Built with extreme attention to details, the .SUPERIOR press brake is built with a solid structure to absorb all the mechanical stress.

The studies made on the framework flections have allowed us to design a product that reacts in the most appropriate and responsive way to the mechanical solicitations, therefore guaranteeing a stable structure, thus a higher precision in bending.

One of the most valued features of .SUPERIOR hybrid press brake is its utmost bending precision.
The use of the highest quality materials and parts, the utmost attention to every design detail and the integration with intelligent analysis systems make the .SUPERIOR hybrid press brake an indisputable precision champion.

press brake with double guided ram


The double guided ram ensures the stability and the ram-working table perpendicularity. This allows to keep the high precision during the whole bending phase, even with different tools and intermediates, thus ensuring the centring made during the initial tests in time.

VICLA Italian press brakes can be upgraded up to 8 axes


The parallelism of the side frames (whose tolerances are within the hundreds), is the technical-structural feature that guarantees the precision and high speed of the backgauge. Together with the rails, also mounted on the side frames, allows to minimize the vibrations and the stress, so that the backgauge can move faster, but maintaining the positioning precision.

crowning press brake machine


One of the options that can definitely improve the quality in a workshop is the Clever Crowning. The crowning system is no longer managed automatically by the NC, but the necessary corrections are made in real time for each bend.

This system ensures great results even when the operator is not skilled. With the Clever Crowning the NC manages indipendently the correction of the bending angle, without the intervention of the user, assuring a perfect bend even on irregular material (i.e. drilled or pierced sheets, etc.)

press brake with sensor for the management of the structural flexions


Flex is the innovative system for the management of the structural flexions, that ensures the same bending depth, regardless to the length of the sheet.

The CNC receives the data form the sensors on the cylinders. These information are then interpolated to set the correction parameters required.

In case the OAC bending angle control system is present, the data are collected ans transferred by the straingauges, positioned into the point of maximum flexion of the frame.

The hybrid press brake embodies the best of hydraulic technology combined with an excellent electronic management system.

Compared to a conventional hydraulic press brake, .SUPERIOR hybrid press brake guarantees significantly higher energy savings.

  • the hybrid system absorbs the energy that will be used only when the operator activates the press brake;
  • the use of hydraulic oil is drastically reduced;
  • with the standard Hybrid System, electricity consumption is reduced by 55% compared to the traditional hydraulic press brake;
  • the Hybrid System Plus system reduces consumption by 78% compared to a conventional machine, and by as much as 23% more than the standard hybrid system.

The dedicated automation allows us to equip our machines with innovative and advanced gauge systems. This makes our machineries unique and able to satisfy the most complex needs.

The basic BACK model has 2 axes (X,R), and can be upgraded up to 6 axes (X, R, Z1, Z2, X2, X3).

All the fingers are equipped with a visual reference: the LED assures the operator the correct positioning of the sheet metal, and its contact with the finger.


1. Movements on ballscrews for higher precision and smoothness;

2. Backgauge mounted onto the side frame, within a milled lodging, (precise up to the hundredth), powered by brushless servo drives, with integrated CAN open electronics, that ensure high performances;

3. Grinded rack transmission, that guarantees high speed of the axes (560 mm/s) and a positioning precision of ± 0,02 mm, therefore high production rates, high standards and noiselessness;

4. New backgauge built with a 10 mm structural beam, with an innovative system for the management of the parallelism, that will allow maximum flexibility for customizations together with extreme rigidity and strength;

5. Complete fingers, running on two opposite linear guides, adjustable from the machine front with pneumatic release

photo cells Iris Plus Lazersafe for press brakes


VICLA machines comply with the strictest regulations with reference to safety. The devices installed guarantee thorough safety of the operator without reducing the pace of work.

  • Safety PLCs able to manage and monitor the action of the proportional valves
  • Visible dual beam linked to the upper tool: when interrupted, the movement of the press brake is immediately interrupted
  • Easy adjustment by means of a grading scale
  • Constant monitoring of parameters related to safety


The best in terms of safety: working cycles are faster thanks to the speed change at 0mm from the contact with the sheet. The speed management is determined by the processed parts

Speed and precision: the speed change is set at 0mm from the contact with the sheet and the angle control system ensures high quality results from the first bend.
