Forming Press Features - Hot or Cold:

Picture of hot forming applicationIn addition to traditional cold forming applications, Beckwood also manufactures hot forming presses well suited for high-strength materials such as titanium, and for the formation of certain composites.

The press size, tonnage, speed, accuracy and control sophistication are all based on your application variables. Features such as our Active Leveling Control (ALC) intelligently account for off-center loading, while Beckwood’s recipe functionality allows you to store cycle data for successfully developed parts for future access. 

Advanced Forming Capability with Decreased Tooling Cost:

Picture of Triform fluid cell model 24-5BDIn addition to custom hydraulic forming presses, Beckwood is also the manufacturer of the Triform line of Sheet Hydroforming presses. Historically, a go-to process for aerospace & lighting companies involved in low-medium volume part forming, sheet hydroforming has gained widespread adoption across the entire forming community, from aerospace & lighting, to automotive, appliance and more.
