Compression Moulding


14 presses equipped with state-of-the-art controls, active parallel positioning, locking forces of 1,600 to 10,000 kN and maximum table sizes of up to 2,700 x 1,500 mm are at our disposal for compression moulding.

They fulfill all requirements for an exact process control and short cycle times for manufacturing accurate-to-size small and large parts with complex geometry.

The moulds, made of highest-quality steel, are heated to approximately 150°C and are charged with SMC, the weight and cut of which is precisely defined. After the press is closed, the material becomes fluid under the pressure and high temperature and is thereby evenly distributed within the mould. The ensuing polymerisation process causes the material to set in its final shape.

Compression moulding is mainly used for flat components made of SMC and is especially suitable for small and medium-sized series. In addition to SMC, BMC can also be processed in individual cases. By using inserts, local reinforcements and coatings, components can be given further special functionalites.
