UK Doors Online Invests In FOM Industrie Adir C CNC Machining Centre From Haffner Murat

by | Mar 2, 2021 | Machinery

Specialist aluminium door manufacturer UK Doors Online has recently invested in a FOM Industrie Adir C CNC Machining Centre from Haffner Murat. The new machine was installed at UK Doors Online’s state-of-the-art manufacturing centre in Ravensthorpe, Wakefield in February, and the company has reported a return on investment from day one.

Andrew Glover, Managing Director at UK Doors Online, said: “We operate a streamlined factory to ensure we deliver the highest quality of product for our customers with a fast and efficient turnaround. Our previous manufacturing processes were taking between 10-15 minutes per aluminium bifold door and this is something we needed to improve. By using the new Adir C CNC machine we have reduced our bifold production time to just 6.5 minutes per door.”

As well as the improvement in manufacturing efficiencies, Andrew also praises the machine’s intelligent software. He said: “Programming of our aluminium bifold doors was completed very quickly. The machine uses touch screen control and all operations are controlled automatically using FOMCAM software which is very straightforward to use. We are now in the process of programming additional aluminium products into the machine too.”

Andrew was also impressed by the speed of Haffner Murat’s service. He said:”The machine arrived within a few weeks of our initial order and following the efficient installation by Haffner, we were in full aluminium bifold production within 48 hours of setup.”

As UK Doors Online have discovered, the Adir C CNC machining centre transforms speed and efficiency on the fabrication floor. Features include CNC controlled axis linear guides for precision machining and four pneumatic vices with dual working pressure to ensure quick and accurate profile clamping. There is an option of a 5 or 6 position tool holder for manual or automatic change operation and pneumatic rotation of the work table achieves angles of 0°, 90° and 180°. It is fully guarded for safety and has a pneumatically controlled front guard for ease of loading the material.

UK Doors Online fabricates an impressive range of aluminium bifold, lift and slide and sliding patio doors, roller garage doors and entrance doors. It supports a growing customer base for the trade, commercial and domestic markets thanks to its product quality and proactive customer service.

Matt Thomas, Area Sales Manager at award-winning Haffner Murat, commented: “Following our initial consultation with UK Doors Online, we recommended the Adir C Machining centre. As Andrew is finding, the machine speeds up production and is extremely user-friendly. We are delighted that UK Doors Online are pleased with their purchase.”
