2017 is coming to an end and it is time for our team to take stock. Retrospect on a past year that has been rich in projects and ended with the official launch of our compact press brake.


The year 2017 had already been a year full of bright promises for ALPHAPLI, as we had launched our project and designed the first prototypes. This year, we have completed the prototyping stage validating the choices we had made both in the technical selections and in the performances of the CNC. This is why we could launch the production of the first machines a few weeks ago and then started a phase of operational tests in order to make the final adjustments. Today, our press brakes are operating. A trained and qualified technician who works with one of our partners uses one of our press brakes daily, so we can get an operational feedback on its performances.


Since launched our project in 2016, we have participated in three shows, which gave us the opportunity to test our concept with a public looking for innovations. The MetalMadrid international show in which we took part in March 2016 and again in March 2017 was the first show where we presented a prototype of our compact press brake and the reaction of the visitors was particularly enthusiastic. This year, we also took part in the SIANE show, which is the industry partners’ show that is held in Toulouse. It took place a few weeks ago and this time we presented a press brake in operation. We had the opportunity to share about our range of machines and innovations with a number of manufacturers who expressed keen interest for our concept. A fruitful collaboration that is currently being developed emerged from these exchanges.

2018 is starting in a few days and this new year is still more promising with challenges for ALPHAPLI and its team. Especially since the launching of our range of press brakes has officially just started! If you wish to learn more, don’t hesitate to contact us, we will always be happy to exchange views about these innovating products.
