Compression Moulding Presses - Benefits
Santec's compression molding presses have
the ability to mold large and intricate parts. Moreover, their operation are
low in cost as compared to other makes as they are energy efficient and they
produce relatively less waste. Contrary to popular belief, Santec's
compression molding presses often provides excellent product consistency
with no knit lines. They are also very much suitable for ultra-large basic
shape produced in size beyond the capacity of extrusion techniques.
Moreover, these presses can be used to process a host of materials. Some of
the other benefits of these compression moulding presses are:
The power pack unit of these hydraulic compression moulding presses is
assembled with high quality valves & other components. This ensures
noiseless operations of these machines.
The presses are designed as per BIS guidelines. Only standard seals and
bronze bushes with lubrication arrangement are used in heavy duty cylinders.
The precisely honed seamless tubes made of carbon steel are assembled with
hard chrome plated piston rod. Sealing elements conform to EN-9 standard and
are imported from Korea & Japan.
Manifold block mounted valves minimize piping, which ultimately ensure no
leakage. It further assists in the easy replacement of parts and comfortable
With the help of PLC, several functions can be controlled to desired
specifics. For example, number of breathings, duration for breathing, curing
time, temperature of platens, temperature variation range, pressure etc. may
be programmed through PLC.
If pressure drops below certain value during the curing period, the
electric motor stop automatically. This ensures less strain to the hydraulic
system, which ultimately saves electricity.
Immediate Mould Opening
While ensuring the safety of the moulded parts, smooth opening of moulds
occurs right after the curing period.
Ultrasonically tested plates of heavy thickness are used to make the frame.
This provides rigidity and capability for frequent and fast operations.
Precisely Grinded Platens
All platens have superior accuracy, as they are precisely grinded up to
0.01 to 0.02 mm parallel accuracy. The platens have T-slots and tapped holes
with provision of heating & cooling as per DIN standards.
Precise machining of the structural members is done to achieve parallel
position between platen & bed and exact perpendicular position between
moving platen and bed.
