Improving manufacturing efficiencies

Essex-based Alimatic Architectural Aluminium Systems has invested in a new Spring S4 four-axis machining centre, a TT405 double mitre saw, and a HP114 corner crimping machine from Haffner Murat.

Sean Folley, director at Alimatic said: “As we continue to grow, we need to invest in further high-quality fabrication machinery to maintain the quality and turnaround time we’re known for. We turned to Haffner Murat as their machines offer excellent value and are made to the highest quality with reliability.”

Sean also praised the service his company received, in particular from regional sales manager Bryan Dando.

“His understanding of our company and his knowledge of the machinery market allowed us to choose the right machines for the business,” Sean said.

The Spring S4 four-axis machining centre is designed for milling, drilling, threading and cutting bars or work pieces made of aluminium, PVC, light alloys and steel.

The TT405 double mitre saw automates profile cutting and has a solid cast construction to enable accurate length and angle cutting.

The HP114 corner crimping machine uses a hydraulic operating system and hydraulic clamps to sustain high-pressure crimping and enable maximum profile stability.

“The aluminium market is seeing growth at the moment,” Bryan said. “Forward-thinking fabricators like Alimatic wanting to maintain momentum and take market advantage are investing in improving quality and efficiency.”
