Live machinery demonstrations

Haffner Murat now offers live demonstrations of a range of machinery to potential customers from the company’s showroom in Staffordshire.

Dave Thomas, managing director of Haffner Murat, said: “We promote our machines through various digital, video and offline platforms but for potential customers to truly appreciate how our machine technology makes a difference to the quality of their fabrication businesses, there is no substitute for seeing the machines in action. And this is something we now offer.”

A range of aluminium and PVCU machinery from Haffner, Italmac and FOM are on display at any one time. Currently on show is the TT405 PVCU and aluminium profile cutting centre. The machine has been proving a popular choice with fabricators due to its poin-to-point cutting accuracy and automatic transom and short cut facility, delivering superb automation. The double-cut saw is suitable for both aluminium and PVCU profiles up to 70mm and has the choice of USB data control or a secure network connection with touch screen technology.

Dave said: “Previously, potential customers would see our machines in action at either an existing customer’s premises or at exhibitions such as the FIT Show and Fensterbau. But with exhibitions postponed and existing customers quite rightly limiting the number of non-essential visitors to their premises, it made perfect sense to demonstrate our machines on our premises as we had always planned. We now have the space to do this effectively while meeting all social distancing and health and safety protocols.”

In 2019, the Staffordshire-based business undertook a expansion programme that saw its headquarters double in size and provides additional space to accommodate such live demonstrations. The headquarters also houses meeting facilities with digital conference facilities.
