St. Louis, MO - Beckwood Press Company recently delivered a 150 Ton, 5-Post, dual-ram hydraulic press to a leading manufacturer of agricultural disks. The press, engineered to maintain pressure on the part during both the hot forming process and subsequent in-die water quench, has eliminated three steps from the customer’s production cycle.
To ensure a fast press closure and quick form on the part, Beckwood provided the customer with multiple valve configurations which offer three different pressing speeds and programmable tonnage control for maximum efficiency. The independent action of the two (2) rams also contribute to an increase in productivity, as the operator can load one station while the other is cycling.
