MPN Sells New Dual Heater Clamshell Shown at SGIA Expo




My Press Needs (MPN) has sold its first Crest Clamshell with dual heaters to Butler Technologies, Butler, PA. MPN will demonstrate embossing and die cutting on the new press in Booth #1952 at the SGIA Expo.

The new Crest, which features heaters on the moving and non-moving platens, expands MPN’s embossing capabilities in the membrane switch and graphic overlay market.

Nadine Tripodi, President/Owner of Butler Technologies, said the company purchased the 20”x 26” press to increase efficiency in their processes. Butler focuses on print applications for a variety of industries, providing services that include printed electronics and user-interface solutions such as membrane switches, graphic overlays and more.

“The Crest was very attractive to us when we saw it in action last year at MPN’s lab,” said Tripodi. “Its dual heated platens will allow us to do thermal die cutting and embossing of polyester and polycarbonates.”

Butler’s Production Manager Mark Bachman said the Crest will provide the company greater reliability and repeatability, as well as increased speed. “We have plotters and lasers, which are great for applications where steel rule die can’t hold tolerances,” he said. “But in our daily work, the Crest will give us higher speed than the laser.”

MPN President Rob Weidhaas said, “We’re already well-known for our die cutting and kiss cutting, so expanding our embossing capabilities is a natural step for us. We’re looking forward to helping Butler Technologies and other companies add to their products and services.”
