Hydraulic and Servo-Electric Presses for Forming and AssemblyJuly 21, 2021
Beckwood Press Co.
Beckwood, a manufacturer of standard and custom hydraulic and servo-electric presses and automation equipment, will provide live demonstrations from two of its cutting-edge forming technologies. The first machine, a 2-ton EVOx servo-electric press, is ideal for light-duty forming and assembly applications that require precision, cleanliness and efficiency. Booth visitors will learn about the press’s three modes of operation and watch it reach positional accuracy to within +/-0.0005 in. with every cycle.
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, unmated tool. The 16-in.-round forming area accommodates an array of part sizes and even can form multiple parts in a single cycle.
