VS manufacturing complexities

Roseview Windows has invested in a second SBA-4 VS PVCU profile machining centre from Haffner.

Roseview has reported a sharp upturn in demand in the past 18 months as a result of the continued popularity of feature-rich sash windows.

Therefore, Roseview ordered its first SBA-4 earlier this year to replace an ageing machine and to drive greater efficiencies across the shop floor. Having been impressed with the machine’s manufacturing efficiency and automated capabilities, the company recently decided to invest in a second machine to further support its growth strategy.

Mike Bygrave, sales and marketing director at Roseview Windows, said: “As a business, we are renowned for the quality of our sash windows and the efficiency of our operations. The SBA-4 VS PVCU profile machining centres will help us maintain and enhance this reputation, even as we continue to grow.”

Bryan Dando, regional sales manager at Haffner, said: “Roseview was finding that many of its previous machining centres were unable to cope with the complexities of sash window manufacture, which meant a lot of processes were done manually.

“With the technical innovation and high-performance accuracy that sits behind the SBA-4, it is more than capable of supporting complex vertical slider manufacture, including both standard and mechanically jointed versions. We’re delighted to see Roseview seeing so much value from its investment.”
