HYDRAULIC PRESSES OPTIMIZED FOR HIGH VOLUME PRODUCTION OF ALL COMPRESSION MOLDED PARTS
Macrodyne hydraulic compression molding presses are 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 also prevent buildup of residual stresses in the parts resulting from material viscosity increases during closing of the hydraulic press.
Precise control of platen motion is a key success factor in compression molding applications. This is readily achieved on our compression molding presses through the use of our proprietary hydraulic circuits and press control systems.
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.
