Haffner Goldstar

Goldstar Awards Haffner A Gold Star!

Trade fabricator Goldstar Trade Frames has recently invested in two pieces of automation machinery that has enabled it to become one of the most efficient manufacturers in the business. The company now manufactures in excess of 250 frames a week with fewer than five people.

Goldstar has invested in a new SMR-4 welder and an SVK2 corner cleaner from Haffner Murat. Mark Simms of Goldstar said, “We invested in a Haffner SBA 2 machining centre at the start of the recession. We were impressed with the quality of the machinery and, just as importantly, the quality of the advice we received. The investment we made helped us ride out the peaks and troughs of the recession with minimum staff. So when the time came to make a new investment, we had no hesitation in turning to Haffner.”

In the SMR-4 welder and the SVK2 corner cleaner, Goldstar has made two extremely sound investments. Quite simply, the SMR-4 is the fastest and most accurate welder on the market today. Alongside a wealth of other benefits, the machine’s key selling point is the automatic self centering of transom and mullions, which ensures 90 degree transom welding even with uneven arrow heads. What this means in practice is that welding can be undertaken without the need for a skilled operator. The SVK-2 CNC corner and transom cleaning machine offers superb flexibility. Suitable for bevel and radius profiles, it’s a two axis machine that’s fully programmable for both white and woodgrain profiles. It has automatic profile recognition and comes with a rotary tool post for radius and internal cleaning with groove and woodgrain knives as standard. Both machines come with a two year part and labour warranty for complete peace of mind.

As well as increasing capacity without increasing overhead, the two machines will also help Goldstar to increase the accuracy of their output. Mark said, “The machines have only just gone in, but we’re delighted with what they’ve added so far. Haffner’s expertise has once again been invaluable and we know from previous experience that their level of after-sales service is exceptional.”

Founded in 1991, Goldstar manufactures PVC-u windows and doors, bi-fold doors, French doors, conservatories and composite doors. The company has a reputation for providing quality and service – a reputation that looks set to be enhanced as a result of this latest investment!
