Contract between Beckwood and the U.S. Army

August 13 2018

Beckwood Press Company, a leading manufacturer of custom hydraulic presses, automation systems, and the Triform line of precision forming equipment, has been awarded a contract by the United States Army—Natick Soldier Research, Development & Engineering Center (NSRDEC) to produce a custom 1,000-ton hydraulic press which will be used to consolidate ballistic composites in a compression molding application.

With a 36”x36” forming area, programmable Active Leveling Control (ALC), and quick die change features, the new press will be flexible enough to support NSRDEC’s Research & Development efforts. Beckwood’s proprietary multi-axis ALC system uses a high-speed motion controller, linear transducers, and proportional valves to synchronize the press’ actuators and maintain bed-to-ram parallelism despite off-center loading.
