Beckwood’s 2-post, or 2-column, hydraulic presses are suitable for heavy-duty applications that use dies which can fit within a bed size of up to 36” front to back. Jobs requiring a larger bed size typically need the additional ram guidance and rigidity delivered by our 4-post or gib-guided presses.
Beckwood’s 2-post presses require less frame steel to counteract the yawning that can occur with traditional C-frame presses, making them more cost efficient. Additionally the enhanced ram guidance offered by 2 posts minimizes deflection for a more consistent die alignment when compared to C-frame presses. For increased efficiency and precision, upgrade your 2-post press to servo-electric actuation.
