Beckwood Hydraulic Press with VFD

VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) is an innovative press feature that significantly increases  energy efficiency over traditional hydraulic & mechanical presses motors. By controlling the frequency of electrical power supplied to the motor, the VFD drastically cuts down on unwarranted energy expenditures while maintaining full functionality.

Energy cost studies predict a payback of less than two years on many applications. Other benefits of the VFD include the ability to program pressing speeds without the expense of proportional valves, and reduced noise & heat levels during idle periods.
