Beckwood launches EVOx line of servo-electric presses for light-duty assembly

Beckwood Press Company, a leading manufacturer of custom hydraulic presses, automation systems, and the Triform line of precision forming equipment, is proud to announce the launch of EVOx, a complete line of servo-electric presses. With models ranging from 1,000 lbf - 100,000 lbf (0.5 - 50 tons), EVOx presses are ideal for light-duty assembly applications including clamping, crimping, joining, press fitting, punching/blanking, riveting, spring testing, staking, and swaging.

The EVOx line of presses is powered by Exlar electric roller-screw actuators from Curtiss-Wright, in lieu of hydraulic systems. Eliminating the hoses, pumps, and hydraulic oil improves cleanliness, energy efficiency, and operator safety while lowering operational and maintenance costs. The roller-screw technology ensures Exlar actuators last longer than traditional ball-screw actuators.

EVOx presses feature a programmable, intuitive controls system that guarantees positional repeatability to within +/-0.0005” while offering force and positional feedback. Additionally, actuator size, frame style, dwell time, safety guarding, and other parameters are fully configurable.

Due to the inherent benefits of servo technology, Beckwood is also offering servo-electric actuators as an option on all new forming equipment and as a post-installation upgrade on existing hydraulic presses up to 200 tons.

“As manufacturing facilities and assembly plants continue to become more efficient, OEMs like Beckwood have been challenged change the status quo,” said Beckwood president Jeffrey Debus. “Our new servo press offerings and retrofit capabilities are changing the game for manufacturers in highly precise and more 'traditional' hydraulic press applications alike.”
