Beckwood to deliver 200-ton forming press

Beckwood Press Co. was recently awarded a contract by Metal Forming Industries to manufacture a 200-ton hydraulic forming press. Scheduled for delivery later this year, the press will be used to make copper components for the utility industry. The custom 4-post press will feature 200 tons of force with a Delta high-speed motion controller to achieve positional accuracy within ±0.005 in. or better. A 20-ton ejection cylinder will strip the finished part from the tool and present it for easy removal. With a fast approach speed of 373 ipm and a retract speed of 299 ipm, the press will decrease current cycle times by 50 percent.
