Compression Molding Presses Include Slab Side
and Vacuum Shroud Models
Vacuum chamber molding and laminating presses increase quality
Compression molding or laminating on a press equipped with a vacuum chamber results in faster production, higher quality and reduced scrap parts. Surrounding the work piece with a vacuum removes heated gases and trapped air from the part, thereby eliminating defects.
Applications: Molding of rubber, silicone and composite materials, often over-molding inserts.
Integral vacuum shroud enhances molding quality and ensures cavity filling by eliminating trapped air. Press can be equipped to press inserts into place, as well as eject molded parts.
