Beckwood to Launch High-Tonnage Linear Servo Press Technology at FABTECH

Beckwood Press Company, a leading manufacturer of custom hydraulic and servo-electric presses, automation systems, and the Triform line of precision forming equipment, will unveil their new product line, Beckwood LSP™, at FABTECH® in Atlanta. Visitors to booth B5507 will see first-hand the new era of press technology that achieves both high tonnages and production level speeds, without the use of hydraulic or mechanical flywheel systems.

New to the press industry, this line is unmatched in terms of forming flexibility, production throughput, precision, and uptime. The Linear Servo Press product line (patent pending) combines the flexibility of hydraulic presses with the performance of servo-mechanical presses. LSP™ is ideal for modern manufacturers in industries ranging from compression molding to advanced steel forming and is available at a competitive acquisition cost.

The model LSP-250-3660 on display will feature 250 tons of force rated anywhere in the stroke via an all-electric actuation system with two linear servo actuators, a 36-in. x 60-in. forming area, and production-level speeds. The technology requires no crankshaft, counterbalance, flywheel, centralized lubrication, or hydraulic power unit and results in minimal scheduled maintenance throughout millions of cycles.

Explore the intuitive programming and cycle parameters with fully configurable speeds, pressures, and positions. Programming infrastructure not only allows for full control with flexible recipe creation but strict part traceability, tonnage monitoring, and overload protection to increase die life. Learn about the modes of operation, and watch the press reach tight positional and pressure accuracies. See the real-time data logging and acquisition system with high-resolution graphing capabilities.

“We are excited to unveil LSP at FABTECH in Atlanta,” said Beckwood president Jeffrey Debus. “This product line is truly a disrupter because it merges only the best aspects of servo-mechanical and hydraulic presses into one machine and is a great example of Beckwood’s commitment to staying on the forefront of manufacturing technology through continuous innovation.”
