Beckwood Launches Ascentâ„¢ Line of Pre-Engineered, Configurable Hydraulic Presses

St. Louis, MO -- Beckwood Press Company, a leading manufacturer of custom hydraulic and servo-electric presses, automation systems, and the Triform line of precision forming equipment, today announced the launch of Ascent™, a line of standard, high-quality hydraulic presses.

Ascent™ presses are pre-engineered for cost efficiency and can reduce cost and lead time by up to 50% compared to custom presses without sacrificing quality or performance. With models ranging from 30 tons to 500 tons and 21 different frame sizes, the Ascent™ line offers an array of choices for manufacturers and jobs shops of every size.

Every Ascent™ press features a unitized gib-guided frame which provides superior guidance and rigidity. Speed, stroke, daylight, and shut height are fully configurable to the customer’s exact needs, while options for heated platens, HPU configurations, and safety equipment add to the line’s flexibility. As with all Beckwood presses, the Ascent™ line is built in the USA, engineered for Infinite Life using Finite Element Analysis, and backed by the company’s robust service and support team.

“Beckwood is known for custom presses and machinery, but we recognized an unmet need in the marketplace for cost-effective forming equipment with a shorter lead time that’s built and supported in the USA,” said Beckwood President Jeffrey Debus. “The Ascent™ line meets all those needs and more while offering customers countless options for customization.”
