Machinery supports plans for growth

Haffner Murat has installed an SC220/70 machining centre and an FC 526 two-head end miller for Bison Frames.

Mark Tetley, director at Bison Frames, said: “Our latest machinery investment allows us to continue to deliver our feature-rich quality products that our customers have come to expect from Bison Frames. The machines will also help us to maintain product excellence as demand for our Genesis Collection continues to grow.

“With our latest machinery requirements, we needed a bespoke solution which included an angled saw blade for the manufacture of our vertical sliding windows along with a screwdriving unit and special arrowhead cutting facility. The team from Haffner Murat delivered on all our requirements.”

The SC220/70 machining centre allows for variable angle cutting of the vertical slider profile. Automatic screwdriver units for reinforcing prior to cutting, an arrow head and reverse butt cutting facility, and 210mm sill cutting and Servo-driven out-feed gripper are just some of the key features of the machine.

The FC 526 two-head end miller allows milling of two transoms in one single operation, and the machine has an automatic feed facility with an automatic release of the moveable heads after milling.

Dave Thomas, managing director at Haffner Murat, said: “Bison Frames is a company that continues to expand and, as such, needed the right machinery to support its continued growth. Thanks to the strength of our technical engineering team, bespoke machine modifications is something we can offer to clients and we are delighted to have been able to provide Bison Frames with the machine solutions it required.”
