400 Ton 4-Post Rubber Pad Press, large press used for aerospace

St. Louis, MO – Beckwood Press Company, a leading manufacturer of hydraulic and servo-electric presses, has been contracted to supply a custom hydraulic rubber pad press to U.S.-based sheet metal fabricating services provider, Milford Fabricating Company.

Scheduled for completion in June 2015, the 400-ton custom-configured press system will feature an integrated bed shuttle to facilitate easy part loading and unloading. The heavy-duty four-post design boasts a  38” x 60” forming area with a total pad thickness of 15” for forming on up to 5” tall form blocks. The press also features Beckwood’s standard PressLink Remote Connect Module, which includes complimentary remote support via a standard web connection.

“While many of our customers have chosen the high-performance forming capabilities of our Triform sheet hydroforming products, there is definitely still a place in many facilities for traditional solid-block rubber pad forming presses,” said Beckwood president, Jeffrey Debus. “The team at Beckwood is proud to offer such a diverse set of forming technologies, which allows us to cater to a variety of forming challenges.”
