Durable molds for electrical fuse protection, electrical termination boxes, instrument doors and cases, drainage water gratings.
What is compression mold:
Compression Mold is a process which is used to manufacture composite components in high volumes. In this type of Mold process, thermoset plastic material is used. It may be in free flow granular form or may be viscous material. With this process, various parts with wide array of lengths and thickness can be prepared. This type of Mold is used to produce gaskets and seals made up of synthetic rubber, silicone and natural rubber. The high quality stiff and durable rubber is used in a variety of industries including the automation industry. With compression Mold raw rubber material gets placed inside a pressurized mold. A plug is secured at the top of the mold. The purpose of the plug is to seal the mold and the plug is connected to a machine that allows for both heating and pressurization. The mold is then heated and pressurized. The rubber gets liquidated and expands. After expansion activity the material is allowed to cool down. Due to pressure the rubber material takes the shape of mold cavity. The rubber material gains a solid state, thereafter, the rubber casting can be ejected from the mold cavity. Rubber products of different shapes can be made by compression Mold.
Making and advantages:
We are one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of compression molds among the industry. Our skilled staff follow all the rules and precautionary measures while manufacturing the molded rubber products. We are the makers of durable molds which can be used for electrical fuse protection, electrical termination boxes, instrument doors and cases and drainage water gratings. We make use of standard aluminum for the manufacturing of compression molds as this metal tends to be stronger, stiffer, lighter and more resistant to corrosion than other metal parts. The manufacturers who work with metal parts find it easy to convert the metal parts in to compressed molds. Many complex parts can be manufactured with the use of aluminum. The production speed of plastic injection Mold is higher as compared to this type but, still it depicts more intricacies than plastic Mold. A couple of advantages and disadvantages can be associated with compression Mold as follows:
- Compression Molds machines are comparatively simple to maintain as compared with injection Mold machines.
- These type of machines are cost effective.
- The machine can produce high volume capacity at one time.
- The design of the products manufactured are ideal and attractive.
- The compression Mold machines can be used to create only simple parts.
- There is a possibility that the process of manufacturing is slowed down.
- The costs of labour are bound to increase with this type of machines.
- It follows a slow process of manufacturing as compared with injection Mold.
