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:

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

It’s a workhorse for us…


“We already had one Crest so we didn’t need to do any research before buying our second. We knew the Crest had great reliability and we didn’t want to take a chance on anything else. Our new 2026 Crest is being used for die cutting adhesives in one of our aerospace manufacturing cells.

“The Crest has been running 24 hours a day, five-six days a week, with probably 50 setups a day for 50 different parts over three shifts. It’s a workhorse for us. There’s no make-ready, quicker setup, newer technology and easier maintenance. And there was no start-up process; it was plug and play.

“The Crest works like a gem and fits our sweet spot.” – Marc Doan, Plant Manager, GM Nameplate, Seattle, WA

My Press Needs made it easy…


“I’ve been running this display manufacturing facility for over 20 years. In that time, I’ve worked with numerous die cutting presses manufactured by Thomson, Brausse, Tosi and Bobst to name a few. The best I’ve worked with, hands down, is the Crest 2M. Its capabilities and reliability are second to none.

“What I’m even more excited about, and eager to compliment, is the company that sold it to me. My Press Needs representative Rob Weidhaas walked me through the purchase, explaining all of my options in detail. He and his staff also 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, Managing Director, Grand Displays, Moonachie, NJ
