Kersten Middle East invests in aluminium bending machine
Aluminium is a lightweight metal, softer and more delicate then Mild-steel and stainless steel. It can often be curved with a bending machine used for mild-steel, however, curving aluminium with a dedicated aluminium CNC bending machine results in several quality and economic benefits. Better surface quality, and less deformation of the cross section.
Kersten Middle East has invested in a dedicated Swiss make CNC aluminium bending machine recently. The machine is designed to achieve the highest quality in curving small to medium size aluminium profiles (up to 200mm) with complex shapes and curves. It is already installed and production is in full swing.
“The new aluminium bending machine is a welcome addition to our Ras Al Khaimah machine park, as we see an increase in the use of aluminium for Architectural Façade constructions ”says Mike Minten, general manager at Kersten Middle East. “We are currently using it for curving aluminium profiles for the Muscat Airport”.
Kersten Middle East machine park is equipped with a wide range state-of-the-art European bending machines for bending sections, tubes and profiles in Mild-steel, stainless steel and aluminium.
