Beckwood Awarded for Press at Lawrence Livermore National LabJuly 1, 2017
Beckwood Press Co., St. Louis, MO, has been recognized by Bechtel’s Nuclear, Security & Environmental global business unit for outstanding work at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The unit’s Supply Chain Recognition Awards honor subcontractors and suppliers who supported Bechtel‘s work in nuclear power, environmental clean-up, defense, and nuclear security and operations projects during 2016.
Prior to installing Beckwood’s Triform model 20-10-10BD deep-draw sheet- hydroforming press, LLNL relied on decades-old equipment to research, develop and make hydroformed parts. Since upgrading to the Triform, LLNL has increased its forming capabilities—it now can form parts from a variety of materials including high-strength alloys, carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel, precious metals, copper and brass, each with varying thicknesses. This flexibility is instrumental for developing LLNL’s extensive range of parts.
“We are honored to receive such a prestigious award from Bechtel,” says Josh Dixon, Beckwood’s director of sales and marketing. “Providing technologically advanced machinery to our country’s national labs, including Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge, has provided a lasting and positive impact on defense and sustainability initiatives.”
