Compression Moulding Presses - A Brief
With hydraulic systems, one of the
fastest growing segments is compression moulding presses, as most of the
traditional metal parts are now being manufactured from composites.
Compression moulding is a way to mold composites using heat to cure the
materials. The materials are mostly preheated and placed in a preheated mold
cavity to a set temperature. The mould cavity is often heated through heated
platens on a press. The mold is closed and pressure is applied to force the
material to spread in mold areas. Heat and pressure are maintained to
varying degrees, until the molding material has cured.
Santec designs a wide range of compression molding presses with a variety
of performance packages to suit customers' needs. All the presses are
designed with the ability to be integrated into any molding application.
Hydraulic presses are engineered to optimize the process of compression
To name a few, such improvements include multiple action rams and control
of ancillary process equipment. Additional features such as double and
triple action rams and part ejection systems can be incorporated into the
press system. In addition to this, the other improvement includes actuation
of internal die components such as ejectors, punches and core knockouts.
Apart from these, precision-heated platen can be integrated with customers'
specific heating tolerances and die controls. Santec's range includes:
