Beckwood and Triform Announce FABTECH 2014 Plans

Beckwood Press Company, a leading manufacturer of custom hydraulic presses, automation systems, and the Triform line of sheet hydroforming presses, will be both exhibiting and presenting an education session at FABTECH 2014 in Atlanta, GA, November 11-13, 2014

Saint Louis, MO September 15, 2014


Beckwood Press Company, a leading manufacturer of custom hydraulic presses, automation systems, and the Triform line of sheet hydroforming presses, will be both exhibiting and presenting an education session at FABTECH 2014 in Atlanta, GA, November 11-13, 2014. Beckwood and Triform will be in booths B1807/B1809.

The one hour education session, presented by Triform Hydroform Engineer Scott Pryer, is entitled "How to Go from Concept to Finished Part in Less than 24 Hours." This session will address using the powerful combination of simulation software, 3D printing, and sheet hydroforming for rapid prototyping and low volume/high mix production. The session will be held on November 13th at FABTECH in Atlanta. Interested parties should visit http://www.fabtechexpo.org to register to attend, seating is limited. When registering use promo code FBGUEST and search for education session F85.

Beckwood and Triform will also highlight each of the technologies covered in the education session in booth, B-1809. Hydroforming engineers will be demonstrating how to take a part concept through PAM-STAMP simulation software to start the process. A 3D Systems 3500 printer, utilizing FDM materials, will be in the booth printing tools to be used within the Triform 610-20-3SC. This Triform is a high pressure-small format deep draw sheet hydroforming press and will be on the floor forming both deep draw and fluid cell parts. Hydroforming Engineers will be available to discuss your specific part forming needs, so be sure to bring information about your parts. You may also discuss your part forming needs with a hydroforming engineer in advance of FABTECH by contacting Triform.

Beckwood will also have a brand new 30 ton custom hydraulic press with a shuttle on display in booth B1807. This press will reveal some of the latest controls technology currently available from Beckwood, including pre-preventive maintenance abilities, enhanced recipe functionality, innovative safety mechanisms and check systems, as well as the first of its kind press-cam, designed to facilitate easier factory maintenance.

"There is a new industrial revolution taking place," said Jeffrey Debus, President of Beckwood Press. "The ability to turn around parts faster and more economically is paramount - which means press operation and reliability are more important than ever," he continued. "As you will see from the technologies we are highlighting at this year's FABTECH Expo in Atlanta, Beckwood and Triform machines are blazing new trails to help our clients prepare for the future of manufacturing," Debus concluded.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
