Our Mission

A long time Neff customer contacted us to duplicate a press we manufactured for them several years ago. The customer, a major automotive airbag manufacturer, required an explosion proof press. During the manufacturing process, the customer uses a highly explosive powder, which acts as the initiator in airbag deployment. Safeguarding the press from these volatile agents is imperative for overall process control.
 

Our Solution

Neff Press® designed and manufactured a 7-ton bench model press with explosion proof controls. All external electrical components were specified by Neff engineers to meet the requirements of Class I, Div II, and group’s E, F and G. The electric motor, valves, pressure switch, proximity sensors, and operator station controls were explosion proof. The main control enclosure, which houses the control electronics, was a cast aluminum design. All conduits, and pathways were filled with the proper sealing compound to ensure proper insulation.
