Leicester, UK, January 10, 2013 -- T.M. Machinery Sales, best known as UK
agents for the Striebig range of vertical panel saws, have entered into a
distribution agreement with Biesse UK to sell, service and provide spare
parts for the artisan range of Viet S1 and S2 wide belt sanders.
The move will give Viet, which became part of the Biesse Group in 2011,
access to the large number of small and medium size manufacturers who
make up T.M Machinery’s core customer base. This is an important market
sector for the Viet range.

Biesse makes excellent sense. Viet has been synonymous with high quality
wide belt sanding and materials finishing since 1953 and leads the market

in which they are specialists, while their service division’s long
involvement with wide belt sanders will give existing and potential Viet
users added confidence.”
Biesse UK and T.M. Machinery are holding a joint workshop exhibition, a
hands-on event giving customers the opportunity to experience the Viet
range at first hand and speak to sanding experts. The event will be held
at Biesse’s Daventry Tech Centre on Friday March 1st
On show will be the versatile Viet S1 and S2 models. The S1 machine will
feature a combination head with two rollers for calibration and pre-
sanding plus a full electronic sanding pad followed by a Tynex brush for
maximum finishing capability. It also features inverter control of the
abrasive belt and conveyor belt speeds for maximum flexibility. Touch
screen controls are provided for operator ease and speed of use.
The Viet S2 is a highly sophisticated machine, described as the ultimate
in surface finishing. The machine on show combines a fully electronic
cross belt sanding head followed by a combination head with roller and
electronic segmented pad for delicate finishing, and a further electronic
segmented pad head for final finishing. Belt blowers, finishing brushes
and turbo panel cleaners are incorporated for the complete panel
finishing solution. Program storage and retrieval along with intuitive
controls are provided via the use of a 15” touch screen.
