St. Louis, MO – Beckwood Press Company, a leading manufacturer of custom hydraulic and servo-electric presses and automation systems, has expanded its Triform product line with the addition of a new deep draw sheet hydroforming press model.
The new Triform 20-10-10DD is a perfect solution for manufacturers looking to increase productivity and maximize efficiency. With a 20-in. diameter max blank size, 10-in. draw depth capacity, and cycle times under 45 seconds, this compact deep draw press allows manufacturers to form large parts within a relatively small footprint – without altering their facility’s foundation. The press also features an integrated tool change system to increase throughput.
“Hydroforming presses are quickly becoming the go-to solution for complex forming challenges, and Triform presses are on the cutting-edge of this technology,” said Triform’s Technical Sales Manager, Bob Blood. “In the manufacturing industry, speed and accuracy are critical. Our Triform model 20-10-10BD is a game-changer, offering tremendous forming flexibility, in a fast, compact design.”
Precision diaphragm pressure and punch position control in the 20-10-10DD, combined with built-in recipe handling capability, results in significantly increased forming proficiency in an intuitive package. To expedite new part development, the 20-10-10DD features Triform’s exclusive ‘In-Sight’ feature, which allows the press to be paused and opened at any point in the forming cycle to allow for a visual inspection of the forming process.
“The 20-10-10 model offered decades ago by Cincinnati quickly became one of the more flexible configurations in the hydroforming marketplace,” continued Blood. “With that in mind, our team was strongly motivated to offer the market a compact 20-inch deep draw solution and allow existing Cincinnati users the ability to make a smooth tooling transition from their aging equipment to the modern era of advanced Triform technology.”
As is the case on Triform’s other deep draw hydroforming presses, including their 25” and 32” models, the 20-10-10DD can be configured to utilize the majority of existing 20” deep draw hydroform tooling.
