Haffner Murat see dramatic rise in sales of the SMR-5 welder

Haffner Murat has just reported a dramatic rise in sales of its SMR-5 welder. Haffner Murat’s Managing Director Dave Thomas said: “We’re delighted this five head welder is proving so popular. It is the fastest and most accurate welder on the market today and has been designed to add value to every fabricator’s set up.”

Just a quick look at the machine’s statistics demonstrate its power. In a single operation it can weld four squares. It’s also capable of welding two corner/transom/corner windows or one window and two sashes in a single operation. The timings are impressive too. It can weld five H welds in less than four minutes and change from corners to transoms in seconds. It all adds up to a machine that transforms speed and efficiency on the fabrication floor.

At the same time as transforming speed it also transforms quality: it guarantees 90 degree welding every time thanks to automatic head positioning and self centers for transoms.

Despite the machine’s many advantages it has been designed to be easy to use. There’s touch screen control with memory positioning and all operations can be controlled automatically via the PLC.

Like all Haffner Murat machines it comes with the reassurance of expert installation and full training so it can start to deliver return on investment from day one. Finance packages are available subject to status and part exchange is an option.

Dave commented: “The SMR-5 Welder gives fabricators what they need in the current market. It’s a machine that speeds up production and improves quality at the same time, allowing them to compete at every level.”

Stevly Windows impressed by capabilities of Haffner Murat’s SMR-4 Welder

Leading south Wales fabricator and installer Stevly Windows Ltd has just invested in an SMR-4 Welder from Haffner Murat. The machine will help Stevly meet growing demand for its products while also maintaining the high standards on which the company has built its name.

 

Lee Johnson, Stevly’s Managing Director, says he and his team researched the market thoroughly before deciding to invest in the SMR-4 welder. Lee commented: “We chose Haffner Murat due to the high specification and fully automatic facilities that the welder offered.”

 

Haffner has a reputation for the quality of its service and there was no exception in Stevly’s case. Lee said: “Dealing with Haffner Murat was an easy process. Any enquiries were answered promptly and efficiently and they ensured that all our requirements were met down to the actual day of delivery.”

 

Lee is delighted with the latest addition to Stevly’s production facility: “Our production has become far more streamlined with the introduction of the new SMR-4 welder and the accuracy of the frames superb. The welder is much easier to use than previous machines we have installed due to the self centering facility feature.”

 

Stevly manufactures and installs all types of double and triple glazing including casement windows, tilt and turns and vertical sliders as well as PVC-U doors, bi-fold doors, French doors, patio doors and composite doors. It was established in 1995 and has been going from strength to strength ever since. In the past 15 years, its manufacturing facility has increased in size ten-fold and the company continues to grow.

 

Dave Thomas, Managing Director of Haffner Murat, commented: “The SMR-4 Welder is an impressive machine that delivers exceptional value for money because it delivers efficiencies of 30-40% over its rivals. I’m delighted to see how Lee and his team are using it to build on the quality for which they’re known.”

Haffner Murat machinery package transforms heritage product fabrication

One of the biggest growth areas predicted in the next few years is in heritage products, in particular mechanically jointed options. These types of products offer good margins for fabricators, but in order to maximise them, fabricators need to invest in the machinery that helps them drive efficiency and quality. The heritage machinery package just launched by Haffner Murat will help them do exactly that.

 

Dave Thomas, Managing Director at Haffner Murat, commented: “Heritage and mechanically jointed products offer exciting opportunities for fabricators, but the biggest returns will be seen by those who harness what automation has to offer. Our heritage machine package provides the machinery needed to mill and weld these niche products efficiently and precisely from as little as £189.00 per week on finance (subject to status).”

 

The heritage machinery package consists of a FA356 Milling Station and a KC258/10 Welder. The FA356 Milling Station can mill two joints in one operation: 45 degree and 90 degree milling is carried out in one pass for the butt joint finish of the outer face. The KC258/10 Welder recreates the traditional mechanical butt joint on the welded corner and an internal seamless weld which enhances the overall appearance of flush sash windows.

 

Haffner Murat is renowned in the industry for its high proportion of repeat customers who turn to the machinery specialists when they need to upgrade or expand production. It’s because the company offers the products that fabricators need. Its machines help fabricators of all sizes and its large R&D department means it’s in a position to work with fabricators to take new machinery ideas from concept to reality in as little as 12 weeks, helping to keep them ahead of the curve. It also delivers exceptional levels of service from pre-sale consultancy to determine the right machine for a fabricator’s needs to comprehensive training that ensures businesses can see the benefits of machines straightaway.

 

So, if you would like to harness the power of automation for your heritage products, then take a closer look at Haffner Murat.

Haffner Murat’s growing sales reflect increasing market confidence

Sales at Haffner Murat have been going from strength to strength recently and Managing Director Dave Thomas says he knows why. “The economy is picking up and as things start to improve fabricators want to offer a wider range of choices to take advantage of as many opportunities as possible. The only effective way to manufacture a wider range of products in the same amount of time is to invest

in automation machinery that maximises the efficiency of your plant.”

Haffner has installed several SBA Machining Centres in recent months and Dave says: “For the bigger fabricators the obvious investment is in the SBA Machining Centre. It’s the powerhouse of window fabrication and if you want to improve your quality, production speeds and bottom line, the SBA is the perfect choice.”

For fabricators of all sizes there are several machines that can make good sense. The SMR-4 Welder dramatically speeds up production times thanks to the touch-screen controls that set profiles, the quick release tooling and the fact that no setting or alignment is required from operators. The TT405 Computerised Saw is a double cut saw for PVCu and aluminium profiles up to 70mm. You can pivot the saw heads from 45 to 90 degrees and set up point to point cutting via the touch screen, eliminating profile tolerance and improving quality. The Italmac Turn 4 Axis machine automates both PVCu and aluminium profiles while the SVK-2 CNC corner and transom cleaner increases efficiency, product quality and offers great value for money. Dave reports that sales of all three product lines have substantially increased in recent months.

Alongside fabricators upgrading their automation machinery, Dave says he has noticed increasing numbers of businesses returning to fabrication after buying-in for a number of years. He comments: “These businesses want to take back control and they see that fabricating their own products is the only way to do this. We have helped several businesses with a range of reconditioned start-up packages that give them everything

they need. Our reconditioned machines offer a great deal for businesses. Every machine has been personally selected by me and comes with a six month warranty with installation and training included in the price.”

Dave concludes: “It’s great to see demand returning to the industry as confidence grows. If you’re one of the companies looking to make the most of the increasing numbers of opportunities, please get in touch to see how we can help.”

Haffner releases video demonstrating credentials of TT405 computerised saw

Haffner Murat’s TT405 computerised saw has revolutionised countless fabricators’ processes thanks to its long list of valuable features. But Dave Thomas, Haffner Murat’s Managing Director, says: “It can be difficult to understand just how much the machine can bring to a business

just by reading product sheets or looking at photos. It’s only when you see the machine working you can get the full picture. It’s why we’ve commissioned a video so that people can see for themselves.”

The video shows the TT405 in action, drawing viewer’s attention to key features such as the capability to cut two standard 70mm profiles in one operation, improving output and efficiency and the saw’s ability to pivot inwards, enabling point-to-point cutting of the outside of the door and windows and increasing accuracy.

The TT405 computerised saw is suitable for both PVCu and aluminium profiles. It has 450mm saw blades and a 4.2 metre cut capacity, with additional cutting length up to 7.2 metres available. It has pneumatic horizontal and vertical clamps to securely fix the profile in position and automatic guarding to protect the operator. Cutting arrow heads make transoms easier, while the PLC offers functions such as saw head pivoting, single head operation, cleat cutting facility, small cut operation and an automatic transom stop facility. The smallest cut using the automatic mode is as little as 165mm at 90 degrees and 270mm at 45 degrees, with smaller cuts available manually, making it tremendously versatile and waste is kept to a minimum thanks to the profile waste optimisation facility.

The TT405 has top quality pneumatics, bearings and computer systems to ensure a long and trouble-free life and further reassurance is available in Haffner Murat’s two year no quibble parts and labour warranty, which comes as standard.

The Haffner Murat team has always been passionate about two things: how window fabrication machinery can improve productivity and quality and reduce overheads in a business. And making sure a business invests in the right machinery to meets its needs. This new video demonstrates both passions perfectly.

The TT405 computerised saw video is available to view at www.haffnermurat.com and on YouTube.
