Hydraulic Deep-Draw Press to Columbia Metal SpinningJune 1, 2017
Columbia Metal Spinning, Chicago, IL, a producer of precision metal spun and deep-drawn parts, has awarded Beckwood Press Co., St. Louis, MO, a contract to produce a custom 450-ton hydraulic deep-draw press. Scheduled for completion in August 2017, the machinery will expand Columbia Metal Spinning’s large-diameter draw-forming capabilities and supplement its existing 250-ton hydraulic press.
Beckwood engineers will develop an intuitive controls system that operates in both manual and semi-automatic modes. Additionally, Beckwood’s PressLink connect module will be included to offer support and troubleshooting, and facilitate program updates without the need for an onsite service visit.
