Namco Controls grew from the heavy duty side of the industrial world. For decades, Snap Lock® industrial limit switches have been the benchmark in reliability for a variety of applications and environments including steel mills, auto factories, foundries, power plants and machine shops.
In 1938, the need for a limit switch of high quality, repeatability, and reliability was pressing – but one didn’t exist. Namco Controls was therefore created to design and manufacture limit switches for our own needs. Innovative and reliable from the beginning, they were eagerly sought after by other companies and we branched out into supplying the demand.
Everything that made Namco Snap-Lock Heavy Duty Limit Switches the preference of the heavy and machine tool industries of the past is still applicable today, from die cast switch bodies to a wide variety of actuators. Times may have changed, but our reputation for reliability hasn’t.
Today, Snap-Lock still provides unparalleled reliability in the toughest environments and in heavy-duty applications. This superior mechanical limit switch provides a huge range of operation, construction, and practical flexibility. You can choose a model, size, and type that will meet and exceed the demands you place on it. In every respect, Snap-Lock has the features and benefits you insist on in a limit switch.
