Machine automation investment

Bristol Windows has invested in a new SMR-4 welder and a TT405 computerised saw from Haffner Murat.

Adrian Price, director at Bristol Windows, said: “Due to steady year-on-year growth we needed to increase our production and we understood the SMR-4 welder to be one of the best on the market today along with the TT405 computerised saw. So when the time came to make a new investment, we had no hesitation in turning to Haffner Murat.”

The key selling point of the SMR-4 welder is the automatic self centering of transom and mullions, which ensures 90º transom welding even with uneven arrow heads. Therefore, the welding can be undertaken without a skilled operator.

The TT405 computerised saw is a double cut saw for PVCU and aluminium profiles up to 70mm. Its touch screen technology can be operated via USB data control or a network connection. You can pivot the saw heads from 45º to 90º and set up point to point cutting via the computer, eliminating profile tolerance and improving quality. Both machines come with a two-year parts and labour warranty.

“Both machines have made a massive difference to the company by increasing our production by at least 50%,” Adrian said. “Due to the increased output we have been able to eliminate overtime which has saved us money too. This is our first purchase from Haffner Murat but we feel it won’t be our last.”
