Macrodyne Compression Molding Presses

Macrodyne designs hydraulic presses for a broad range of compression molding processes including thermoset resins, thermoplastic resins and fibers:
  • Sheet molding compound (SMC)
  • Bulk molding compound (BMC)
  • Multi component molding(MCM)
  • Glass mat thermoplastics (GMT)
  • Thermoplastic compression molding
  • Transfer molding
  • Long fiber reinforced thermoplastics (LFRT)
  • Low pressure molding compound (LPMC)

Composite Presses Optimized for High Volume Production of all Compression Molded Parts

A Macrodyne hydraulic compression molding press is designed for the high volume production of molded components ranging from small thin, precision parts to large thick parts featuring a myriad of intricate shapes. Fast pressing cycles ensure maximum production output and prevent residual stresses in the parts, resulting from material viscosity increases during the composite press’s closing.

Precise control of platen motion is a key success factor in compression molding applications, specially when the press is used with Sheet molding compound (SMC) and Bulk molding compound (BMC). This is readily achieved on our compression molding presses through the use of our proprietary hydraulic circuits and press control systems.

Compression Molding Press Features Further Enhance Production Capabilities

A wide variety of features are available for our compression molding presses including:

  • Temperature compensated adjustable guiding
  • Core/ejector packages
  • Platen locking devices
  • Mold and platen heating packages
  • Direct or accumulator hydraulic drives
  • Intelligent platen parallelism packages
  • Vacuum packages
  • IMC packages

Intelligent Levelling Systems Provide Enhanced Platen Parallelism

For applications where enhanced platen parallelism is required (such as in-mold coating), Macrodyne supplies an intelligent parallel levelling package complete with servo-proportional controlled levelling cylinders, powered levelling spindles, and associated electronic control package.
