Stamping is one of the most universal terms in the metalworking industry. It encompasses applications such as punching & blanking, embossing, perforating, coining & minting, and even general forming. This array of applications requires incredibly diverse machinery, from large mechanical or hydraulic presses to small tabletop or benchtop servo-electric presses.
Beckwood is a leading U.S. manufacturer of built-to-order hydraulic and servo-electric stamping presses. In certain applications, they offer significant benefits over traditional mechanical stamping presses, including the ability to apply full tonnage throughout the stroke and precisely control the ram’s pressure and position. Precision and programmability are vital to create the most efficient stamping operation and protect your investment in tools and machinery from unnecessary wear.
One of the biggest challenges with any stamping, punching, or blanking application is the breakthrough (snap through) shock associated with high-strength materials. Beckwood developed Active Leveling Control technology to counteract the effects of breakthrough shock, extend component life, improve uptime, and help you manufacture higher quality parts with less scrap.
