The VFDs
A new Farr Gold Series Package (GSP) dust collector provides high-performance capture of dust and fumes generated by CNC laser- and plasma-cutting machines. Available in three compact, powerful mod- els, the units handle air flow from 1000 to 3000 ft.3/min. at 8-in. wg. Each collector comes with two, four or six HemiPleat eXtreme Gold Cone filters with nanofiber media that handles the toughest dust challenges, meeting or exceeding OSHA permissible exposure limits (PELs) on most metallic dusts.
50-ton deep-draw forming press with infinitely adjustable closed loop multi- axis position and velocity control, touch screen HMI with recipe stor- age, proportional pressure control of ram, and joystick for manual control.
Custom engineered, application-specific hydraulic presses.
Our high-tech, special-purpose presses, designed to meet your most demanding requirements, are the most accurate and productive machines we’ve ever built.
