Precision Control Effects on Productivity of Compression Molding 830487

A precision compression molding press, the press controls, and mold temperature control are described. Controllability of the press motion, press force and the mold temperature have a significant impact on reduced cycle time, reduced material costs and reduced scrap in compression molding of “Class A” finish FRP structural panels. Conceptual ideas on automation of the process are presented that can substantially reduce labor costs and increase consistency of molded SMC panels.
