Move into aluminium
Titan Trade Windows has opened a new 4,300 sq ft aluminium windows doors and bifold factory in Derby to manufacture featuring a FOM Adir C CNC Machining Centre and a TT 425 Double Mitre Saw, both from HAFFNER MURAT.
Operations Manager Ben Vowles said: “Historically we’ve been a PVC-U fabricator and bought in aluminium products when they were needed but recent growth in demand for windows and entrance doors in addition to bifold doors means it make sense for us to manufacture our own.
“We’ve always used Haffner Murat machines in our PVC-U facility and we know we can trust the quality of the machines, the after-sales service support and the reliability.”
The FOM Adir C CNC Machining Centre is a 3-axis controlled unit that features CNC controlled axis linear guides for precision machining, and has an option of a 5 or 6 position tool holder for manual or automatic change operation and pneumatic rotation of the work table achieves angles of 0°, 90° and 180°. The machine has four pneumatic vices with dual working pressure and a pneumatically controlled front guard.
The TT 425 Double Mitre Saw solid case construction and linear bearing system. A horizontal and vertical clamping system ensures optimum profile fixing and there are practical features such as a pivoting range with digital display, work piece supports and profile lifting bars and a cleat cutting facility and oversize length cuts between 4mm and 4,500mm delivers maximum versatility. Item numbers, length dimensions, angles and quantities can be programmed on the control panel, while data can be transferred via a connection or USB.
Matt Thomas, regional sales manager of Haffner Murat, said: “We’ve worked with Titan Trade Windows for a number of years so we were delighted to support them in setting up their latest venture.” www.haffnermurat.com
