Beckwood to manufacture 2,500-ton hydraulic press for Diverse Metal Products

May 6, 2020 - Beckwood Press Company, St. Louis, has been awarded a contract by Diverse Metal Products, Houston, to manufacture a 2,500-ton hydraulic forming press. Scheduled for delivery later this year, the press will be used to make embossed heat exchanger plates in nuclear missile tubes for the U.S. Navy.

The custom press will feature an 8-point square gib guidance system that is fully adjustable left-to-right as well as front-to-back to minimize lateral movement under load. The 48-in. x 66-in. bed and ram bolsters will be machined to accommodate DMP’s existing tooling. Safety features include light curtains on the front opening, fixed polycarbonate guarding on the rear, and a UL-Certified electrical enclosure.

Like every Beckwood press, DMP’s new machine includes several up-time focused features. The press’ structure is engineered for ‘Infinite Life’ using Finite Element Analysis software, dual linear and pressure transducers offer reliability and redundancy, and Beckwood’s proprietary PressLink module facilitates fast, complimentary remote support.

“We are proud to support companies like Diverse Metal Products who supply critical components to the U.S. military,” said Josh Dixon, Beckwood’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “Our unwavering commitment to engineering and manufacturing presses in the United States results in safe, reliable machinery and gives every Beckwood customer a competitive advantage.”

“DMP is proud to partner with Beckwood on this project,” said John Keith, one of DMP’s owners.  “Selecting a U.S. manufacturer to help us support the United States Nuclear Navy was our #1 objective.  Beckwood has done what they said they would.  We are excited to deploy this asset in the coming months.”
