Our Capabilities

Explosion-proof Machinery

Republic Lagun designs and builds machines that meet or exceed the most complex UL and DOD specifications. In fact, our machines are currently in use in many US military and industrial complex facilities. For an explosion-proof rating, the operating temperature of the component cannot be greater than the lowest combustion temperature of the vapors, dust, or fibers in the air. Also, the housing is built to contain any explosion originating from within the unit and prevent sparks from igniting any airborne elements.

Our Experience Speaks Volumes

Successful metalworking manufacturers have one thing in common: They always work with professionals. At Republic Lagun, we have an unrivaled team of highly-experienced professionals to assist you every step of the way, from machine tool selection, order entry, shipping information, installation assistance, and maintenance programs.
