IDC helped design and engineer Specacs new Apex 400 bench top press, translating their brand identity to fit seamlessly into their expanding product line up.
The Apex 400 is a compact hydraulic press dedicated to the production of pressed pellets for XRF (X-ray fluorescence) and other elemental analysis.
There were key design considerations for IDC around the interaction points including the access draw and the digital user interface ensuring they are accessible for everyone when mounted on a workbench.
Using IDC’s expertise of manufacturing and sheet metal forming, the engineering team carried out the final design for manufacture.
The press has been designed with maintenance and servicing in mind. The modular fitment of the componentry allows for easy accessibility and repair. The structure allows the device to be moved too and from site using a crane attached through the top hook.
