With a track record of high quality products, innovative solutions and exceptional levels of customer service, we have established ourselves as one of Europe's leading perforators.

We perforate metal coil and blanks and manufacture perforated and expanded metal tubes and related sub assemblies in low and high volumes.

Spiral lock seamed tubes

We have an extensive range of tooling to manufacture spiral lock seamed tubes from 25mm up to 150mm. Tubes can be perforated to give a greater open area and corrugated for extra strength.

The benefits of this type of tube include:

- Cost efficiency

- Slotting and tube making in one process

- Stronger tube construction using thinner materials

- Compatability with wide variety of stock materials

We can offer  production capacity to accommodate all requirements, from pre-production samples to high volume runs.

Tube Manufacture

Tubes can be formed in variety of ways to meet the needs of different applications. We can cut/roll/join, or roll/join/cut dependent on specification. PPP offers both automated and manual tube forming dependent on volumes and specification.
