Langbow was set up in 1971 as a design and manufacturing centre for Tube Machinery. This included the world famous Langbow TM series twin head tube bending machines and these were developed to fully automatic 6 axis CNC versions. Langbow also made tube notching machines, Tube End Forming machines and special designed machinery to provide solutions to production requirements for tube manipulation around the world.
In the late 90s, it was apparent that manufacturing techniques had improved in the Far East to such an extent that with we could look at importing machinery and offer a wider range to compliment our existing equipment.
After much consideration and many air miles, it was obvious that the best manufacturer in this part of the world by far was SOCO in Taiwan. We formed a relationship with SOCO in 1999 and this remains strong to this day.
Langbow is SOCO’s Official UK Distributor and has been solely responsible for the sale, commissioning, training and warranty work on in excess of 500 Machines currently in use in the UK.
how we work
Most of our customers have more than one machine and references are available by request. Because we enjoy an excellent relationship with our customers we can usually arrange a site visit to an end user near to your premises.
We employ factory trained service engineers stock spare parts in our Midlands sales and service centre and to our knowledge are the only company to offer a standard 5-year Warranty on new machines.
SOCO Machines are designed and constructed to the highest standards and are an ISO 9002 qualified company. All Machines are fully CE compliant and are manufactured in Taiwan by Asia’s largest manufacturer of tube bending, end finishing and sawing machines.
As well as providing new solutions, we also offer a range of quality reconditioned used machinery. All used machines offered for sale have undergone the Langbow program whereby the machine is fully refurbished and serviced and as such will carry at least a 3 month warranty. We have a wide range of used machinery constantly moving through our workshop and showroom. We also have a range of used tooling at a fraction of the price of new tooling.
