St. Louis, MO – Beckwood Press Company, a leading manufacturer of custom hydraulic presses and automation systems and the Triform line of precision forming equipment, will be showcasing their latest innovation in press design at FABTECH® 2017. Visitors to booth A5448 will not only learn tips to increase productivity and eliminate unplanned downtime, they will also be able to quickly develop concept drawings on-site to share with internal stakeholders.

This year’s booth theme, “Imagine the Possibilities” showcases LAUNCHTM, Beckwood’s exclusive virtual press design technology. Via a user-friendly interface, visitors can work with Beckwood’s Solutions Team to input a variety of variables (bed size, tonnage, speed, heat parameters, etc.) and generate a preliminary sketch of their new machinery in real-time on the show floor.

“This technology is changing the way our customers approach capital equipment purchases,” said Jeffrey Debus, President of Beckwood Press Company. “In a few short minutes, users are able to define many process variables and watch their ideas come to life. Having a concrete solution to their toughest manufacturing challenges gives customers peace-of-mind and greatly expedites purchasing decisions.”

Beckwood’s Solutions Team has more than 100 years combined experience developing robust machinery and engineering competitive advantages. Relying on extensive process knowledge gained from serving countless industries, they can recommend process improvements and machinery upgrades that users would not have otherwise considered.

Booth A5448 will also feature fluid cell and deep draw sheet hydroforming demonstrations using a Triform model 610-20-3SC. Ideal for low-volume, high-mix part production, sheet hydroforming presses use a single, unmated tool and a pressurized rubber diaphragm to form parts with smooth, uniform, scratch-free surfaces that typically require no additional finishing.
