Addison Tube Division, the specialist tube bending technologies arm of Addison Saws, has been appointed as the sole UK distributor of PBT’s CNC profile bending machines.
 
Swiss-based PBT is a leading name in high-performance profile bending technologies for aluminium, stainless steel and steel profiles. Its machines are used across a large number of sectors, including automotive manufacturing, construction, aerospace, the windows industry, and furniture making.
 
“Identifying closely with our ethos”
“We are extremely pleased to have secured the UK distributor rights for PBT’s internationally recognised profile bending technologies,” comments Addison Group managing director, Gary Knight. “In appointing us, PBT identified closely with our ethos of helping customers find the very best solutions to their manufacturing challenges, through technologies sourced from the global market place, and all supported by the highest levels of customer service. PBT’s machines will dovetail perfectly with our tube bending and end forming technologies from leading Taiwanese manufacturer, CSM.”
 
PBT – high levels of capability
Employing high levels of functionality and triple-roller bending technology, PBT machines cold-form both aluminium and steel profiles in a highly energy efficient manner. PBT profile bending technologies range from the Arkus 12® – a compact, exceptionally powerful machine that bends even the smallest aluminium and steel profiles to extremely tight radii – to larger, heavy duty machines such as the PBT35® and HELIX® models, which are suited to more challenging applications, including profiles for use in plant and vehicle manufacturing, materials handling, construction and architectural needs. PBT also builds bespoke profile bending machines to meet the most demanding of manufacturing requirements.
