Bison Frames targets growth

Haffner Murat has installed two pieces of fabrication machinery for trade fabricator Bison Frames, home to the Genesis Collection. Mark Tetley, director of Bison Frames, said: “Our latest machinery investment allows us to continue to deliver our feature-rich quality products that our customers have come to expect from Bison Frames. The machines will also help us to maintain product excellence as demand for our Genesis Collection continues to grow.”

Bison Frames has invested in a SC220/70 machining centre and an FC 526 two head end miller from Haffner Murat. Mark commented: “Haffner Murat has a great range of fabrication machines that offer high quality engineering. With our latest machinery requirements, we needed a bespoke solution which included an angled saw blade for the manufacture of our vertical sliding windows along with a screwdriving unit and special arrowhead cutting facility. The team from Haffner Murat delivered on all our requirements.”

The SC220/70 machining centre allows for variable angle cutting of the vertical slider profile. Automatic screwdriver units for reinforcing prior to cutting, arrow head and reverse butt cutting facility, 210mm cill cutting and servo driven out feed gripper for improved speed and accuracy are just some of the key features of this specialist machine.

The FC 526 two head end miller allows milling of two transoms in one single operation, designed to improve output times and quality. The machine has an automatic feed facility with an automatic release of the moveable heads after milling and repositions at the same length for the second transom.

Dave Thomas, managing director at Haffner Murat, concluded: “Bison Frames is a company that continues to expand and as such, needed the right machinery to support its continued growth. We were delighted to work with the team at Bison Frames to ensure our machines met its manufacturing needs, which included some modifications to cater for its bespoke requirements.”
