St. Louis, MO – Beckwood Press Company, a leading manufacturer of hydraulic and servo-electric presses, automation systems, and the Triform line of specialty forming equipment, will be showcasing their latest innovations in precision forming technology with two presses at FABTECH® 2019. Visitors to booth D46747 will learn how to increase precision within their forming process and improve productivity.
The first machine, a 4,000lbf (2 ton) EVOx servo-electric press, is ideal for light-duty applications requiring high precision, cleanliness, and efficiency. Learn about the three modes of operation, and watch the press reach positional accuracy to within +/-0.0005”. Gather instant feedback for diagnostics and maintenance using the data acquisition system which records key performance metrics at a rate of 1000 samples per second.
The second machine, a Triform model 16-5 fluid cell sheet hydroforming press, is ideal for low-volume, high-mix part production often seen in the aerospace industry. It uses a pressurized rubber diaphragm to easily form complex net-shaped parts over a single, un-mated tool. The 16-in. round forming area accommodates an array of part sizes and can even form multiple parts in a single cycle.
Both presses feature intuitive controls, recipe handling, and data acquisition for strict part traceability as well as a PressLink™ remote support module which connects Beckwood technicians with the press in the field to expedite troubleshooting, maintenance, program updates, and training. The connectivity of these machines allows the IoT to be utilized for maximum uptime and predictability.
“With the increasing demand for highly precise forming equipment, Beckwood is continually developing and refining technologies,” said Beckwood president Jeffrey Debus. “The EVOx and Triform presses on display at FABTECH® are great examples of Beckwood’s commitment to R&D and continuous improvement.”
