Beckwood to Supply a Deep-Draw Press to OCC

Wednesday, September 26, 2007
 
Orange County Choppers (OCC) will soon install, at its new production facility scheduled to open in February 2008 in Newburgh, NY, a new hydraulic deep-draw press supplied by Beckwood Press Co., St. Louis, MO. The press will be used to form motorcycle tanks, fenders and other parts currently outsourced by OCC. Paul Teutul, Sr., founder of OCC, selected Beckwood to provide the latest in hydraulic press technology, integrated with components from suppliers including Rockwell Automation and Parker Hannifin. The four-post press will be designed specifically to deliver flexibility and precision through a four-axis active leveling system for parallelism control during off-center loading. It also will be equipped with a variable-frequency drive to optimize energy efficiency, and a dynamic-bed cushion to provide control through four travel zones.
