Haffner SMR-4 successWhen Haffner Murat’s SMR-4 welder was introduced to the market last year, it was billed as being revolutionary. It seems that the market more than agreed with this verdict as sales of the machine are soaring. Dave Thomas, Haffner Murat’s Managing Director, said, “The SMR-4 welder solves a perennial problem for fabricators, adding value to the bottom line immediately, so I’m not surprised it’s proving such a hit.”

The SMR-4 welder is the first welder on the market to eliminate the problem of corner weld misalignment in the fabrication process. This is because it can auto-align corners as well as transoms. Even if the arrow head is slightly out, it still welds the transom at 90 degrees. Quite simply, it removes the need for a skilled operator and eliminates costly remakes, saving time and money.

The welder’s automatic head position offers other benefits apart from eliminating remakes. It also means there is no need for set squares or aligning tools. Other automatic features include automatic transom fences, automatic corner fences and automatic transom and mullion alignment, all of which will dramatically speed up the production process and increase quality. 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.

Dave concludes, “The problem of corner weld misalignment was a problem in the industry for years. I’m delighted that the SMR-4 has solved it and I’m delighted that its innovation is proving so valuable to fabricators.”
