Compression molding machine combines 3 presses
0-3-3 This new French Oil compression molding machine, which runs under the direction of a single controller, combines three presses, each with as much as 10 tons of compression capacity, with three molds each. Offering nine total pressing surfaces, the four-post, three-press system was designed for producing medical parts but can be modified to meet other needs. Each press can operate independently, with platens that are heated electrically and cooled by water and separate fans. The system is equipped with a 10.5-inch PLC that provides a digital readout of conditions including force, temperature and time.
What’s new? The system, which has been available since the summer.
Benefits Greater productivity. Compared with machines with fewer pressing surfaces, the 10-3-3 saves floor space and energy.
