  • Compressing Rubber with Pressure

    Compression presses are a type of hydraulic press that use compressive force to shape a material into a mold. Typically, compression presses are used to shape rubber into molded shapes. For the most part, compression molding is ideal for low to medium product volumes and it is used to create a huge variety of parts in a variety of sizes, shapes, and hardness. The high compressive force is also ideal for use with high-cost rubbers and extreme applications that require hardened rubber products. Many manufacturing companies use compression molding to...

  • Hydraulic Presses at the Movies

    A hydraulic press is a large piece of equipment that is designed to crush metal together into a designated shape or size. Hydraulic presses are essential for the production of metal forging, and can create a wide variety of metal pieces and parts for the automotive industry, factory production, construction, and even the medical industry. Without hydraulic press manufacturers, many of the appliances we use everyday could not be manufactured. The extreme pressure necessary to operate the presses has fascinated movie makers for many generations. Hydraulic presses show up in...

  • Compression Presses: Mass Producing Machines

    Photo Courtesy of Macrodyne Hydraulic Presses & Automation The rubber industry utilizes a variety of hydraulic press styles to produce the vast amounts of rubber based products necessary for industrial, commercial and residential environments. One such style is the compression press, which is specifically designed to produce molded products. That is why it is also known as the compression molding machine. Not only designed to work with rubber, the compression press is also able to work with plastics and metal alloys. The ability to work with such a large range...

  • 4 Reasons to Choose Compression Presses

    A compression press, sometimes called a molding press, is a type of hydraulic press that pushes materials together with two plates. The two plates force the material into a mold shape. Typically, the machines are used with rubber, plastic, composites, and laminates. Depending on the material, a compression press can be operated cold or hot. Many different industries can take advantage of the benefits that compression presses can provide. Any company that uses dense composite molds will find the presses beneficial in their day-to-day activities. So what makes compression presses...

Industry Information

Compression Press

High pressure from compression presses produce perfectly molded products. A compression press is commonly referred to as a compression molding machine and is primarily used for manufacturing plastic and rubber molded goods and also products made from metal alloys. Depending on what elements are required for a particular product, most presses can be designed with specific compounds in mind.

There are many different types of hydraulic presses, one of which is the compression press. Similar to the processes found in rubber molding and injection molded plastics industries, compression molding presses are designed to produce mass amounts of consistently shaped products. Though compression presses may be ideal for manufacturing tight-fitting products such as extruded rubber seals and stoppers, they are also found to be quite helpful within the automotive industry, since they can produce many car parts such as fenders and car hoods. Other products that come out of these presses include plastic cases, electrical equipment and all kinds of toys for children. No matter what the application, however, compression presses are capable of handling large product runs for a variety of industries and can also complete jobs within a short amount of time. Whether its seals, hoods, toys or anything else, most products that come out of this process have a relatively smooth surface, which is another added benefit to this type of molding.

Typical materials used in compression presses include plastic compounds, rubber and metal alloys. Some specific examples include Polyester, Vinyl, Torlon, Vespel, Poly P-phenylene sulfide and various forms of PEEK. Though compression presses have the ability to mold different metal alloys, a better option for most iron, steel and aluminum molding would involve the use of forging presses. In any case, since all compounds mold differently, it is important to keep in mind the amount of material used when working with a compression press. It is also equally important to pay attention to temperature and force so as to ensure that the end product maintains the desired texture and form. In contrast to their ability to produce a wide variety of products from an assortment of different materials, compression presses bring reduction to parts replacement, downtime and noise. This is possible because molds are reusable, machines can continue to run without interruption and whereas former molding processes generated fair volumes of noise, the process used with these presses is much quieter.
