Some product manufacturers require you to register your personal data to obtain drawings and technical data. Nex Flow does not – as we believe “information that will help you in choosing your product should be free and accessible”. Nex Flow has faith in its products, quality and performance and strive to be there for you when needed. Hence, we do not interfere with the privacy of our product users just because a drawing is needed. We truly believe that our transparency, service, openness and good value can help to optimize any plant in terms of efficiency, energy use, sound levels and much more.
If you would like to receive a monthly update from us – you can opt in to our mailing list in which you can cancel at any time. We consider all customers to be partners treated with respect and that – means reasonable access to information that is required for you to work easily and privately.
One of the most useful information required by anyone utilizing Nex Flow products is the products’ performance but they also need to know if the products will “fit” into an application location. Machine builders and designers require drawings of product to be able to easily incorporate them into their designs. This is the very reason why we openly provide our drawings and dimensions to designers and users so you can best choose the product that “fits” your application.
Four drawing formats provided are:
|2 dimensional PDF of a CAD drawing fort customers that just require to get an idea of dimensions|
|3D PDF||Three dimensional drawing of the products that gives an idea of its real life look|
|CAD||2 dimensional drawing of the products useable in design|
|IGS||A data format that makes it possible for Computer-aided design (CAD) systems to exchange information and easily incorporate the product into a customer design|
The most common products where these drawings are utilized are:
|Nozzle image with

|Air knives||Air amplifiers||Air wipes|
|Air operated Conveyors||Vortex Tubes||Panel Coolers|
The reason being that these products are typically part of a production line that have to be placed and oriented a certain way to work properly and to be assured that they fit for the application.
Other Nex Flow products also have these drawings available even if they are not necessarily incorporated into an initial product design. For example, Tool Coolers, Adjustable Spot Coolers and Mini Coolers come with magnet attachment so they can be mounted easily onto a machine. Sometimes these products are used intermittently because they are not always needed for a particular application or they are moved around and shared between several machines but the information is still necessary to visualize how they can be mounted.
All Nex Flow products need to be connected to a compressed air supply lines, filters, regulators and other types of in line equipment, most often supplied separately by others (although also available by Nex Flow). Machine builders and designers typically go direct to manufacturers of individual products because that is the way to get the best price as well as the technical data and drawings needed. End users usually have standard or existing suppliers for many of the accessories as well.
Air gun drawings are useful to give an idea of how the guns can fit into a person’s hand. There are many low cost – frankly cheap – air guns on the market but many times they are not very well designed for comfort. If the air guns are used extensively, a drawing will help visualize its use in your operation. Of special importance would be heavy duty air guns used for difficult air blow off applications. They need to be especially ergonometric to maximize comfort for the user.
The dimensions of items used in places where space can be a premium is also especially useful – such as vortex tube operated Panel Coolers which are mounted onto control panels but also used for cooling items such as cameras, and vortex tubes themselves. Panel Coolers are normally mounted on the top of control panels and there has to be enough space on the top of the panel, otherwise a side-mount should be used.
Static control technology is another item where drawings are useful in placement of product. Static eliminators and their distance to the product is critical for their effectiveness and they also require a power supply near proximity to the static bar.
Having easy and anonymous access to these drawings makes the job of designing and choosing a product easier, more efficient and also helps to protect the work of the people using the information freely offered by Nex Flow.
