Rick Proffit and NAPCO’s 30” x 43” Crest Clamshell

Our success only comes from your success.

We continually measure our performance through continuous customer dialogue as well as customer satisfaction. Here are the most recent comments from some of our valued customers:

Dependable, repeatable…


“What I really like about our new 20” x 26” Crest Clamshell is that it’s dependable and repeatable. Our Thomson clamshell was old and really just for box cutting, so it was a challenge to die cut and kiss cut with it. But with the quality My Press Needs has manufactured in this press, the tolerances are held, and the top and bottom plates are parallel – it’s amazing. We’re saving time; the machine is quiet and runs smoother; and the user interface is very user friendly. Plus, it takes up less floor space.

“We’re still playing with what the dual heating will do. But even when we’re cutting cold, the Crest holds a much tighter tolerance; it’s tremendous. Primarily, we’re kiss cutting on pressure sensitive materials, 10-11 hours a day. We have 100,000 impressions already!

“The Crest is also great for teaching the die cutting craft. We have a young operator who’s just learning, and the Crest is teaching him how die cutting should be.” – Mark Bachman, Production Manager, Butler Technologies, Butler, PA


Second to none…


“I’ve been in the display manufacturing business for more than 20 years. During that time, I was the managing director for two companies, both of which were equipped with die cutting presses manufactured by Thompson, Brausse, Tosi and Bobst to name a few. We purchased the Crest 2M about six years ago and by far, it’s the best press I’ve ever worked with.

“Six months ago, I opened my own business and was able to purchase only one new press. The press I decided to go with was the Crest, simply because its capabilities and reliability are second to none.

“Another factor that weighed heavily in this decision was the company that sold it to me. My Press Needs President Rob Weidhaas walked me through the purchase, explaining all of my options in detail. He and his staff kept me informed every step of the way. From the time I placed the order, I received updates through all aspects of transit, until it was safely placed on my floor. They then held my hand through the entire installation and stayed with me and my management staff until the press was running to its fullest potential.

“Buying a piece of equipment of this magnitude is a large investment and can be extremely stressful. I would say, wholeheartedly, that My Press Needs made it easy. I can’t wait to purchase another press from them.” – Peggy Sacino, Owner, PEG Displays, Moonachie, NJ

We'll buy more Crests…


“Steel rule die is 85-90% of our business, and we’re using our 23” x 32” Crest to die cut all types of materials, including vinyl, adhesives and aluminum. Our Production Manager Jeff Solomon says consistency is the key with the Crest. Other presses may go out on the cut, but the Crest stays true. The setup time is 5-10 minutes because of its consistency, while setup on our other presses may take 20 minutes or more. And because the Crest is so user friendly, we can rotate operators easily.

“It’s just a matter of time before we upgrade our other presses to the Crest in the Fabrication Department. Plus, Rob Weidhaas is straightforward and follows up. We want partners like that!” – Brad Butterstein, President, Data Graphics, Mt. Dora, FL

I would recommend it…


“We needed something more heavy duty; the beds were warping pretty quickly on the clamshells we had. We did our research and found MPN’s website and the Crest. Then I spoke with Rob (Weidhaas) at a trade show. We use the Crest for embossing raised buttons into faceplates or debossing polyester. It’s all pressure-sensitive decal work.

“The Crest works perfectly fine. Our operators like the computer interface, and that the bed is flat so it sets up faster for large kiss cut jobs. I would recommend it; the extra investment was worth the money.”
– Rick Rohloff, General Manager Minnesota Facility, Cypress Multigraphics
