Featured Item: Hot Forming Technologies
Once reserved for specialized aerospace applications, hot forming presses are now used in a variety of industries. In recent years, Beckwood has developed several strategic technologies to maximize production efficiencies on their custom hot forming solutions.
To maintain precise temperature control across the platens, Beckwood utilizes programmable multi-zone heaters which are controlled via the HMI. Additionally, automatic, insulated door systems maximize heat efficiency and facilitate safe tool and part loading by isolating the work area during forming.
To counteract the effects off-center loading and breakthrough shock, Beckwood developed Active Leveling Control (ALC) technology which uses closed-loop monitoring to maintain bed-to-ram parallelism throughout the cycle.
