East London-based trade and retail fabricator Prestige Windows & Doors has recently purchased a range of machines from Haffner Murat. Kam Nandha, Director at Prestige Windows & Doors, said: “I have known Dave Thomas and the Haffner Murat team for some years and the quality of their machines and service has more than lived up to our expectations. The new machines are currently being installed at our new Essex manufacturing plant and we can already see what a difference it’s going to make to our efficiencies.”
Prestige Windows & Doors purchased a range of fabrication machinery to support their new Essex business set up. Machines included Haffner’s SBA-2 machining centre, a new SMR-4 four headed welder, a FOM Modus CNC machine and the new TT425 Compound Double Mitre Saw. Suitable for use in conservatory roof and aluminium window and door manufacture, the new TT425 provides superb length, angle and cutting accuracy thanks to its strong construction and linear bearing system.
Kam said: “The quality of all the machines is superb and we are particularly impressed with the SMR-4 four headed welder. We believe it’s the best welder on the market today and is four times faster than conventional welders, which increases our efficiencies. The SMR-4, like all of Haffner Murat’s machines, is very user-friendly and easy to operate too, meaning it makes an instant impact on your production line.”
As Kam says, one of the biggest benefits of the SMR-4 is the increased efficiency it provides. This can be attributed to three key features. Switching between frame styles is quick and easy thanks to the touch screen technology, so production planning becomes much simpler. No operator setting or alignment is needed because the welder replaces all the existing tools and set squares that a conventional machine needs. And quick release tooling reduces cycle times, increasing frame output by up to 30%.
Haffner Murat says that like all its machines, they come with the reassurance of expert installation and full training so they can start to deliver return on investment from day one. Finance packages are available subject to status and part exchange is an option.
