Beckwood Press Company Goes "Green"

ST. LOUIS, MO - Beckwood Press Company has recently delivered a 1,000 ton Straight Side Endframe (SSE) hydraulic press to a Tier 1 heavy truck parts supplier. The press is powered by a 150 Horse Power motor equipped with a VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) for significantly increased energy efficiency over traditional hydraulic & mechanical presses. By controlling the frequency of electrical power supplied to the motor, the VFD drastically cuts down on unwarranted energy expenditures while maintaining full functionality. Energy cost studies predict a payback of less than two years. Other benefits of the VFD include the ability to program pressing speeds without the expense of proportional valves, and reduced noise & heat levels during idle periods.

The Beckwood Press Company utilizes proven and standard designs that are tailored to their customers' specific applications. They offer a variety of low cost, high-quality hydraulic, hydro-pneumatic, and booster presses from 2-2000+ tons. These presses can be made for virtually any industry, with an unlimited amount of capabilities and options.

The company recently celebrated their 31st year in business in 2007 and is located on the web at
