English translation:hydraulic folding press / machine
Explanation:
oleodinamico = hydraulic
It just expresses better than idraulico that oil is the movement transmission agent.

The name of such a press, working on metal sheets is "folding machine".

A bending machine works with tubes / and other thicker materials.

Si si tratta di lamiera quindi penso che sia giusto dire folding, non essendo nel campo mi viene immaginare come funzioni questo macchinario, Grazie Yves, ed anche ad Angela.

hydraulic bending press


Explanation:
piegatrice idraulica = hydraulic bending machine

piegatrice a pressa = bending press

suggerisco "hydraulic bending press"

Nota che 'oleodinamico' e 'idraulico' sono spesso usati come sinonimi per intendere macchine utilizzanti un cilindro di olio incomprimibile ed uno stantuffo per applicare la pressione.

Explanation:
Both previous answers indicate alternatives for different machinery. You should let us know what the press "bends" or "folds"?
Folding if it is paper/cardboard, even cloth.
Bending if it is metal.
Obvious really!! That's why context is necessary.
