rubber pad forming press by beckwood press

For many low-volume, high-mix forming operations, sourcing a press with cost-effective tooling options and advanced forming capabilities can be a challenge. Beckwood offers two technologies which have been mainstays in the world of low volume / high mix part production: Rubber Pad Presses (also known as Guerin Box Presses or Elastoforming Presses) and Triform™ sheet hydroforming presses.

The versatility of the forming area and tooling allows for multiples of the same part or several different parts to be run in a single cycle as long as the tools and blanks fit into the working area of the press. With Beckwood’s custom rubber pad presses, you can form large parts at a lower upfront cost than sheet hydroforming.

The simplified tooling can be made quickly and economically from a variety of materials including steel, aluminum, poured epoxies, 3D printed substrates, and even wood. This can reduce tooling costs by 50-90% and dramatically decrease changeover time when compared to conventional press tooling.

Advantages of Rubber Pad Forming Presses

  • Cost efficient
  • Un-mated, cost-effective tooling
  • Durable rubber pads

Alternatives to Rubber Pad Forming and Elastoforming

The inexpensive tooling and ability to run multiple parts in a single cycle are amplified in our line of Triform sheet hydroforming presses. Similar to rubber pad forming, sheet hydroforming offers all of the same benefits plus a more even distribution of force across the part’s surface. The result is net-shape part production without secondary finishing.
