Specialist fabricator Mercury Glazing Supplies Ltd has just invested in Haffner Murat machinery to support its plans for growth. Steve Cross, Mercury’s Managing Director, said: “We’ve bought several machines from Haffner Murat in the past and we know they deliver the quality and service we look for. We had no hesitation in returning to them again.”
Mercury has invested in two machines: a new FA526 Automatic 2 Head End Milling Machine and a new SC220/VS Machining Centre, both of which will support the company’s fabrication of the new Spectus mechanically jointed vertical slider as well as general window production.
The FA526 Automatic 2 Head End Milling Machine has features including the ability to mill two ends of transom in a single operation and a vertical and horizontal pneumatic profile clamping system that enables optimum work piece fixing. Other features include a movable head that is manually positioned and manually fixed according to the profile length and an automatic release of the fixed head after milling which is then repositioned at the same length for second transom.
The new SC220/VS Machining Centre gathers all sawing, milling, drilling and marking operations on PVC profiles onto one computer-controlled machine. Highlights from a wealth of benefits that improve productivity include the ability to stack eight profiles of up to 6.5 metres in length for 210mm cill cutting and prepping, the ability to automatically cut in all angles between 30º and 150º with an accuracy of 0.1º and a shift monitoring system.
Steve commented: “We’ve built a business on quality and service and we don’t want to compromise that. We knew from previous experience we could trust Haffner Murat to find the production solutions that were right for us. Both machines deliver clear quality and are already adding value to our fabrication set-up.”
