PBZ® profile machining centres

5-axis profile machining with innovative clamping technology. For profiles with the highest technological requirements

Application diversity

Differences in lengths, technological highlights and design: With its PBZ SC, PBZ NT and PBZ HD series, Handtmann offers profile machining centres for all profile cutting applications. Whether in light or heavy extrusions, solid material, short and narrow or long and wide profiles up to 30,000 mm, complex tasks are performed in composite materials, aluminium and steel. In all cases, the profile machining centres guarantee highly dynamic and economical cutting to meet high quality demands. 

Precise and powerful

The combination of a rigid machine design, good ergonomics and powerful machining units guarantees precise and powerful 5-axis simultaneous machining. The profile machining centres from Handtmann allow you to realise short machining times and low costs per piece as well as excellent precision.

Innovative clamping technology

Individually configurable clamping vice and table variants make it possible to realise a wide range of solutions for flexible workpiece clamping. 6-side complete machining is also possible through end machining.

ONE PRODUCT LINE - THREE SERIES

The PBZ product line comprises three machine series with different technological highlights and sizes. This allows us to cover a wide range of applications in 5-axis cutting and to provide the optimum machine for your application.
