At Beckwood we comprehend the ripple effect unplanned press downtime can cause. Decades ago, the first custom hydraulic presses Beckwood engineered and built were for our own internal use. Because we were responsible for the maintenance of those machines, we put significant thought into engineering systems that facilitated simple service and routine maintenance tasks. To the benefit of our customers (and our Service & Support team), we’ve held on to that perspective.

To maximize your press’ performance and uptime we offer Hydraulic Press Maintenance Contracts and Factory Preventive Maintenance Packages. These services, performed by factory-trained Beckwood technicians, can be customized to your company’s specific needs and range from annual to quarterly on-site visits.

While on-site at your location, Beckwood’s Service Technician will conduct a comprehensive press inspection, perform scheduled Preventive Maintenance tasks and make essential repairs.

We have a 5-point inspection program which includes detailed analysis and Preventive Maintenance of your press’ Safety Systems, Structure, Hydraulic System, Electrical/Controls Systems and Overall Performance. After each Preventive Maintenance visit, Beckwood will submit a complete inspection report (including the oil sample analysis results) and any recommended actions for improving system performance or durability.

Beckwood also offers a Pre-Preventive Maintenance System and complimentary remote support which help to further eliminate unplanned downtime. These systems send automated warnings, reminders, and reports to the user of the press as well as other team members such as maintenance, plant managers, or operations staff.
