As exhibitors return from FIT, few will be as satisfied as Haffner Murat. Dave Thomas, Managing Director of Haffner Murat, says: “It was our best show ever in terms of interest and orders taken.”

There was plenty to attract fabricators to the stand but the star of the show was the OPTI-Weld quad welding machine, which can be used for PVC-U, aluminium and wooden profiles. Dave says: “Fabricators could instantly see the benefits it brings. Not only can it be used as a conventional welder, it can also weld a square without the need for pre or post cleaning of the profile.”

The increasing trend for fabricators to turn to aluminium as an alternative to PVC-U was reflected in interest on the stand. Dave says: “We have the machines fabricators need to cater for this market. Machines attracting the most attention were the Spring CNC Machining Centre and the TT405 Automatic Double Mitre Saw. They are perfect examples of how automation delivers increased quality, increased efficiency and reduced fabrication costs.”

The trend towards high value, specialist products was reflected in interest in Haffner Murat’s competitive heritage machinery package. Dave says: “Flush sash and heritage welding are certainly being talked about and promoted throughout the industry. We will be looking to add more machinery in our range to make this even quicker and easier for manufacturers to fabricate, so watch this space.”

Dave concludes: “We’re delighted with the way the show went. We’ll be following up on leads over the coming weeks!”
