When Haffner Murat launched the SMR-4 welder it was billed as a revolution in welding machinery. It seems that the market agrees because sales of the SMR-4 continue to grow. In fact, the welder is proving so attractive to fabricators that Haffner Murat will install seven machines in January and February alone.
Dave Thomas, Managing Director of Haffner Murat, says, “The SMR-4 is the fastest and most accurate welder available today. It’s one of those machines that simply sells itself because fabricators can immediately see the difference it will make to the quality and efficiency of their production.”
The SMR-4’s key selling point is the automatic self centering of transoms and mullions, which ensures 90 degree transom welding even with uneven arrow heads. It means that welding can be undertaken without the need for a skilled operator. The welder also offers a retracting middle corner fence, three square welding and an on screen window display that makes checking progress easy. Finally, drop down support arms help to anchor small frames, making the production of these much easier.
As the high volume of SMR-4 installations suggest, 2015 has started very well for Haffner. As the market continues to recover and more and more fabricators look to invest in new machinery, Haffner is taking on new staff to meet demand while continuing to offer the exceptional level of service it is renowned for. A new salesperson started at the beginning of February and a new workshop engineer is due to start at the end of the month. Dave concludes, “It’s great to see demand picking up because it means confidence is returning to the market and fabricators are looking to the future of their businesses.”
