Compression molding is a primary manufacturing process which converts raw materials to finished products using a molding press. Composite components can be processed via various techniques although compression molding is the most common form.
Heat is primarily used along with suitable pressure along with differing cycle times, to manufacture a composite component effectively.
This strategy is generally used for molding thermo set plastics and has been used for quite a while now. By applying pressure with a compression molding machine, the measured molding material is upheld into a cavity of a heated form and cured. [Read more…]
