Beckwood Launches Ascent Line of Pre-Engineered, Configurable Hydraulic PressesJanuary 11, 2022
Beckwood Press Company, St. Louis, MO, a manufacturer of custom hydraulic and servo-electric presses, automation systems, and the Triform line of precision forming equipment, has introduced the Ascent line of standard hydraulic presses. The presses are pre-engineered for cost efficiency and reportedly can reduce cost and lead time by as much as 50 percent compared to custom presses, without sacrificing quality or performance. With models ranging from 30 tons to 500 tons and 21 different frame sizes, the Ascent line offers an array of choices for manufacturers and jobs shops of every size.
Every Ascent press features a unitized gib-guided frame which provides optimum guidance and rigidity. Speed, stroke, daylight and shut height are fully configurable to customer needs, while options for heated platens, HPU configurations and safety equipment add to flexibility.
“We recognized an unmet need in the marketplace for cost-effective forming equipment with a shorter lead time that’s built and supported in the United States,” says Beckwood president Jeffrey Debus. “The Ascent line meets those needs and more while offering countless options for customization.”
