Three series as a benchmark for demanding and economic profile machining.

PBZ profile machining centres.
Ideal ergonomics for machine operators.

High performance machining centres for high
precision profiles.

Profile machining centres have always been the core competence of Handtmann

A-Punkt Automation GmbH. The company has been a leading manufacturer of 5-axis

HPC/HSC machining centres for more than 25 years.

As a member of the international Handtmann Group with
about 3,300 employees Handtmann A-Punkt Automation
GmbH has become a well-established machine constructor
for profile machining in aerospace, façades, door and window
construction as well as further metal working industries.

The Handtmann PBZ


product line includes three machine

series - each with different sizes and various technological
highlights for the dynamic machining of composite, aluminium
and steel. Almost every task in profile machining such as
machining of light extrusions, heavy extrusions, short and
thin as well as long and wide profiles up to 30,000 mm can
be achieved by meeting high quality demands and economics.
Varied solutions for flexible workpiece clamping are possible
due to the individual configurations of clamping vices and
table versions.
Various automated solutions allow short set-up times and
reduced downtime.

The PBZ product line meets your

application requirements due to

various individual clamping concepts.

Handtmann clamping technology:
•  Integrated, flexible, CNC-controlled clamping system for

reduced downtimes

•  Clamping vices for standard clamping or customer-specific

clamping systems

•  Variable number of clamping vices

•  CNC-controllable positioning of clamping vices

•  Workholding fixtures with integrated media supply possible

(hydraulics, pneumatics, vacuum, electrics)

•  Workpiece clamping for 6-sided machining

•  Shifting of clamping vices provides ideal access to each side

of the profile

•  Economic, cost efficient clamping technology

Dynamic pendulum operation up to 24 meters in length.

Pendulum operation for loading and unloading

parallel to machining with minimal floor space


The PBZ SC combines the advantages of pendulum machining
with high spindle power and a minimum floor space requirement
for profiles up to 24,000 mm in length. This combination allows
efficient machining of aluminium and steel profiles as well as
composite parts. A table version even allows the machining of
plates in various materials.

Pendulum machining creates two separate workzones. Thus,
parallel to machining loading and unloading is possible and
expensive downtimes are reduced enormously. The rigid machine
construction provides high machining accuracy and quality for
interference-free, 6-sided contour machining.

Two separate workzones allow pendulum

machining which leads to high productivity with

savings in set-up times and cost per part.

6-sided profile machining up to 24,000 mm in length.
