"We always enjoy showing veteran manufacturers the ways our technology can help them improve their processes, finished parts and profit margins." -Jeff Debus, Beckwood President
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 21, 2014
Beckwood Press Company, manufacturer of advanced hydraulic press solutions and the Triform line of sheet hydroforming presses, announced today that it successfully demonstrated how its advanced pre-preventive maintenance technology can help eliminate unplanned downtime for manufacturers and how the use of simulation software, 3D printed tooling and sheet hydroforming is changing the game for manufacturers and allowing them to go from a concept to a finished part in less than 24 hours; at the FABTECH Expo in Atlanta, GA last week. The demonstrations received excellent feedback from the tradeshow attendees.
The 2014 FABTECH Expo was held last week at the Georgia World Conference Center, and Beckwood and Triform were among nearly 1500 other exhibitors visited by tens of thousands of attendees. To complement the live, in booth, demonstrations of their industry leading technology, Beckwood and Triform hosted an education session at the conference entitled “How to Go From Concept to Finished Part in Less than 24 Hours.” The event was attended by leading engineering firms and top manufacturers, and as Beckwood expected, it was nearly sold out; so Beckwood also hosted a follow up webinar on the same topic through MetalForming Magazine on November 19th. A recorded version of this online seminar entitled “Art to Part” can be viewed at http://www.metalformingmagazine.com/multimedia/ under the “Sponsored Webinars” section of the page.
The Beckwood and Triform booth was visited by a vast array of manufacturers from across North America – leading companies from the aerospace, defense, automotive, energy, petroleum, lighting, and medical sectors were among those who stopped by to check out the new technologies demonstrated. Those topics and machines most inquired about were:
- Hot Forming/SPF Presses
- Stretchforming Machines
- Ring Expanders
- Sheet Hydroforming Presses
- Ancillary Equipment Integration
- Increased Uptime through Pre-Preventive Maintenance
- 3D Printed Tooling
- Forming High Strength Materials such as Titanium, Inconel, Hastelloy, etc.
- and more
“FABTECH is one of the most diverse conferences in the US, reaching manufacturers across the nation and around the globe. The event offers us the opportunity to share our leading technologies with clients and prospects alike,” said Jeff Debus, Beckwood President. “We always enjoy showing veteran manufacturers the ways our technology can help them improve their processes, finished parts and profit margins,” concluded Debus.
