Haffner brings two new machining centres to market
Haffner Ltd, the multi-award-winning machinery specialists, has just unveiled two new PVC-U automated machining centres, which are due for market release over the next few months. Dave Thomas, Chief Executive Officer at Haffner, said: “As a business committed to delivering the machines our customers need, we have extended our SBA machining centre portfolio with the addition of two new machining centres. Like all our machines, they have been designed to deliver high levels of automation throughout the fabrication process, speeding up production, improving product accuracy and turbo-charging efficiency.”
The new SBA-1 Machining Centre has been designed and built by Haffner to assist the smaller fabricator who wants to compete in a market where labour prices are high and skilled workers are also hard to find. This sensibly priced machining centre will allow fabricators to cut and route between 300-400 windows per week with just one operator.
Similarly, the new SBA-5 Machining Centre is a machine powerhouse. It has all the attributes of the highly popular SBA-4 including additional servos to further increase routing times on both door profiles and night vents.
Dave commented: “The benefits of automating window and door fabrication have always been clear when boosting efficiency and productivity on the factory floor. The two new machines are suitable for fabricators at all levels looking to scale production output as fluctuating demand dictates with minimal resources.”
As you would expect from a Haffner machine, innovation and technical excellence is evident at every level. The machines are easy to programme, control and adjust which gives them maximum flexibility and useability. And with minimal operational manpower needed, they also help lessen the impact of the current workforce shortage too.
Dave said: “Automated machines speed up the manufacturing process and can amplify the workforce by achieving more output with less skilled manpower. This allows fabricators to adapt to the current workforce shortage, help create more efficient processes and relieve existing workforce pressures too.”
The new machines look set to be popular with the company already receiving its first pre-launch order for the new SBA-5 Machining Centre from a largescale fabricator. Proof, if any were needed, that the combination of innovative machine technology, high-quality engineering and the proactive Haffner support, is extremely attractive.
