New machine technology

Fabricators wanting to take advantage of welding Aluminium and PVCU without the need for corner cleaning or crimping should visit Haffner Murat at the FIT Show, where it is launching its latest patented machine technology, Opti-Weld.

Dave Thomas, managing director of Haffner Murat, said: “Opti-Weld is a patented method of welding PVCU, aluminium and wooden frames. The technology can weld a square in under two minutes in a range of materials. It’s a real game-changer in fabrication and I urge every fabricator to visit our stand at FIT to find out more.”

The first machine to use the new technology is the new DWM-027/40 quad welding machine, which can also be used as a standard welding machine. Greater accuracy is assured with the 19-axis control servo driven operation, and maximum weld strength is ensured with 100% welding surface on the adjoining PVCU profile.

There’s an automatic production mode and no pre-or post-weld cleaning is required, speeding up fabrication and reducing costs. All parameters and servo positions can be amended to suit up to 6,000 profile parameters and there is special tooling available for individual fabricator specifications.

The system is operated with a 15” touch screen industrial PC with Windows 10 operating system and data transfer is via the network, USB or bar code scanning, ensuring Opti-Weld will fit into any production set-up.
