MultiEdge Plate Bevelling Machine Demonstration

A recent demonstration of the GBC MultiEdge Plate Bevelling machine carried out at a customers facility showed the capacities and finishes this machine offers.

The material : 22mm thick Duplex 2205 at a 45 degree bevel angle.

Working to the customers specification we produced a X prep (double V) with two 10mm deep preps with a 2mm face in under 20 minutes.

Using our hardened inserts specially designed for Duplex material, the MultiEdge left an impressive mirror finish.

Misleading advertising

It has come to our attention during recent website performance reports that there is a company selling GBC machines under different names due to paid adverts. Their advertising is very prominent on the popular search engines.

This company, Bevel Ltd, appears to be a virtual company with no address, no offices, stores or workshop. It is owned and run by Czech nationals. On closer inspections we have noticed that the telephone number is non-geographic and their address is in fact a mailbox, a virtual mailing address.


Bevel Ltd, 83 Ducie Street, Manchester, M1 2JQ Tel: +44 845 862 1826

In comparison GBC UK has offices, stores and a workshop. We have trained engineers, a large stock of machines, spare parts and tooling alongside our hire fleet of machines. Any GBC UK customers are always welcome to come and see our premises for reassurance.

GBC UK is an accredited ISO9001:2008 company, whereas Bevel are not. We ask our customers to please be careful when purchasing machines from a non accredited or official re-seller.

GBC UK nominated for two 2018 Welding World awards!

GBC UK are very pleased to announce that we have been nominated for two Welding World awards in the ‘Best New Welding Product’ category and the ‘Best Welding Machine Supplier’ category. We are honoured to have been anonymously nominated, and would very much appreciate if our customers and suppliers could vote for us!
