Beckwood launches servo-electric presses

Beckwood Press Co. released the EVOx line of servo-electric presses. With models ranging from 0.5 to 50 tons, the presses are for light-duty assembly applications, including clamping, crimping, joining, press fitting, punching/blanking, riveting, spring testing, staking and swaging. They are powered by Exlar electric roller-screw actuators, in lieu of hydraulic systems. The roller-screw technology ensures the actuators last longer than traditional ballscrew actuators. The programmable, intuitive controls system guarantees positional repeatability to within ±0.0005 in. while offering force and positional feedback.
