CONTINUOUS COMPRESSION MOLDING MACHINE
Compression molding is a high-pressure molding process: the polymer is melted, mixed and homogenized inside a plasticizing unit. A device draws doses of polymer that have the exact same weight as the product and inserts them into the molds. The pressure applied to each mold can be as high as 400 kg/cm2.Get more news about compression molding machine,you can vist our website!
HIGHER PRODUCTIVITY thanks to a shorter cycle time. The lower extrusion temperature allows the mold to cool the cap faster.
ENERGY SAVINGS due to the lower extrusion temperature. With less energy needed to heat the plastic, less is required to cool it.
PRODUCT WITH BETTER MECHANICAL PROPERTIES. Because plasticizing occurs at low temperatures and with no hot runner, the raw material maintains its characteristics and product performance is improved.
CONSTANT WEIGHT AND SIZE OF THE PRODUCT is a winning feature of this technology, exceeding the best results of injection molding. A cooler product exiting the mold means less shrinkage and therefore less size variability.
RAPID, EASY MAINTENANCE thanks to independent molds. Molds are replaced quickly and individually; maintenance is performed at the stand while the machine is operating.
FAST, ECONOMICAL COLOR CHANGEOVER. The simplicity of the plasticizing unit and the absence of the hot runner speed up color changeover and considerably reduce waste of raw material during and after color switches.
CCM hydraulic rotary presses are specially designed to produce thermoplastic products by means of compression.
A continuous work cycle is carried out, during which the plastic material is fed by a plasticization unit, cut into suitably sized pellets and then inserted inside the cavities.
Compression molding is already a well known technology worldwide. More than 45% of plastic beverage caps are produced through compression.
