Beckwood to Showcase Servo-Electric and Sheet Hydroforming Press Technologies at FABTECH 2019

Beckwood Press Company will be showcasing two high-precision forming machines in booth D45161 at FABTECH 2019.

Beckwood Press Company, a leading manufacturer of hydraulic and servo-electric presses, automation systems, and the Triform line of specialty forming equipment, will be showcasing their latest innovations in precision forming technology with two presses at FABTECH 2019. Visitors to booth D45161 will learn how to increase precision within their forming process and improve productivity using IoT and integrated machine intelligence.


The first machine, a 4,000lbf (2 ton) EVOx servo-electric press, is ideal for light-duty applications requiring high precision, cleanliness, and efficiency. Learn about the three modes of operation, and watch the press reach positional accuracy to within +/-0.0005". Gather instant feedback for diagnostics and maintenance using the data acquisition system which records key performance metrics at a rate of 1000 samples per second.

The second machine, a Triform model 610-20-3 deep draw sheet hydroforming press, is ideal for low-volume, high-mix part production. Watch how the pressurized rubber diaphragm easily forms complex net-shaped parts over a single, un-mated tool while diaphragm pressure and punch position are tightly controlled (to 1% of full scale and +/-0.002" respectively). Using the proprietary "In-Sight" tool, easily develop the perfect recipe for any deep drawn part.

Both presses feature intuitive controls, recipe handling, and data acquisition for strict part traceability as well as a PressLink™ remote support module which connects Beckwood technicians with the press in the field to expedite troubleshooting, maintenance, program updates, and training. The connectivity of these machines allows the IoT to be utilized for maximum uptime and predictability.

"With the increasing demand for highly precise forming equipment, Beckwood is continually developing and refining technologies," said Beckwood president Jeffrey Debus. "The EVOx and Triform presses on display at FABTECH are great examples of Beckwood's commitment to R&D and continuous improvement."

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
