What is compression mold

Compression molding, used for compression mold, is a molding method according to the characteristics of each stage in plastic curing reaction, and often used to produce high-quality composite parts. Compression molding materials are usually powder, granular or fibrous plastic, such as thermoplastic(LFT, GMT,LWRT), rubber and thermosetting plastic(SMC, BMC), Or new composites(SymaLITE,carbon fiber).

What is compression molding process?
Firstly, plastic is put into the cavity at the molding temperature, then close the mold, the material inside the cavity becomes a molten state under the high heat and high pressure, and then fills in the whole cavity. After curing, the product is ejected by ejector, repairing the flash. For compression molding, material, shape, compression, temperature, part thickness, cycle time must be considered. You must analyze the characteristics of the materials to ensure the product perfectly. Molding cycle time is something with material, part feature, mold design, temperature, pressure, etc.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of compression mold?
Advantages of compression mold:
(1)The loss of raw materials, the wear of the mold cavity is small, and the maintenance cost of the mold is low.
(2)It can be used to form large flat products. High dimensional accuracy, small shrinkage, low internal stress, the mechanical properties are relatively stable. The surface is smooth without secondary modification.
(3)The cost of the molding machine is lower, the mold structure is simpler, multiple cavities can be produced at lower cost, and the manufacturing cost is usually lower than that of the injection mold.

Disadvantages of compression mold:
(1)At present, it is not suitable for molding complex products with depressions, side slopes or small holes.
(2)Burrs must be trimmed manually
(3)For thermosetting plastics, when the molded products have slight defects, they are often unable to be recycled.

What is compression molding used for?
Compression molding is widely used in industry, agriculture, automotive industry, electricity, chemical industry, construction and other fields. MDC has developed compression molds such as spoiler templates, fenders, bumpers, front panel on trucks, engine covers, doors, bottom fenders, car ceilings, seat backs, electric boxes and bathroom door panel basin, etc.

What’s LWRT Mold?

As a leading LWRT Mold maker, we’re pleased to introduce new technology named LWRT for somebody else.

LWRT means Low weight reinforced thermoplastics. This type of material has been widely used in underbody shield of Automotive industry. both for Interior and exterior parts.

LWRT composite sheets are typically thermoformed into parts with a desired geometry.
Thermoforming is a stretch-forming process resulting in a reduction of the sheet’s original thickness. The deeper the cavity of the geometry is designed, the thinner the wall thickness of the final part will be.
The formability of the sheet material is its ability to form into parts with desired geometry without failure. The geometry of the parts varies according to different applications, and some
applications have a very complex geometric design. A good example of such applications is trunk trim, which has a deep-drawn, multi-cavity geometry.

The advantage of LWRT material would be:

1.weight reduction of at least 25% compared to traditional technologies

2.acoustic performance satisfaction without need for additional sound-absorbing elements to be welded or over-molded per piece.

MDC Mould, as a professional LWRT Mold maker, has produced many molds for our customers, such as Audi, BMW, Daimler, Jaguar, etc.

What’s BMC Mould?

BMC mold is used a thermo plastic made up of a polymer resin, various inert fillers, fiber reinforcement, catalysts, stabilizers, and pigments that form a viscous. It is highly filled and reinforced with short fibers.

Depending on the end-use application, compounds are formulated to achieve tight dimensional control, flame resistance, high dielectric strength, corrosion and stain resistance and color stability. Its excellent flow characteristics make BMC mold well suited to a wide variety of applications requiring precision in detail and dimensions. The material is available in a wide variety of colors.

In addition, BMC mold is suitable for either compression molding or injection molding. BMC compressing molding is used to produce complex components such as electrical equipment, car components, housings for electrical appliances and tools, in large industrial volumes.

MDC Mould, as a professional BMC mold maker, is able to make BMC compression mold, as well as BMC injection mold with gate cutting.

What is GMT MOULD?

MDC specialized in compression mould, GMT mould is one kind of them .

so what is GMT ?

GMT is Glass Mat Reinforced Thermoplasitcs, a kind of sheet molding compound with fiber reinforced thermoplastic. It is produced on huge laminators, using a thermoplastic resin and one or more forms of reinforcement. The process yields a lightweight, partially consolidated, semifinished composite in sheet form. Most forms are produced to 1,300 mm to 1,400 mm widths. However, some newer forms are made to greater but proprietary widths. The sheet stock may be cut to size to suit placement in the tool for a specific application and also can incorporate a decorative or functional surface laminated to one side. GMT mould makes possible the production of large parts with low tooling costs and fast cycle times via compression molding. The potential for parts consolidation presents the opportunity to further reduce weight and cost.

What’s the advantage of GMT mould?

Utilization of regenerated; Low forming pressure; Long storage period; Short shaping cycle; High production efficiency

What’s the mostly application of GMT mold?

GMT mold is mostly used in Automotive and building&construction, chemical industry, packaging, sport equipment, etc.

Please keep in touch with us, when any doubts on GMT Mould.

Molding temperature of compression mould

The molding temperature depends on the curing system of the resin paste, the thickness of the product, the production efficiency, and the complexity of the structure of the product. The molding temperature must ensure the initiation of the curing system, the smooth progress of the crosslinking reaction, and complete curing.

In general, part having a large thickness should have a lower molding temperature than a thin-walled part, which prevents excessive heat produce heat build-up inside the thick part. If the thickness of the product is 25-32 mm, the molding temperature is 135-145 °C. Thinner part can be formed at 171 °C.

The increase of the molding temperature can shorten the corresponding curing time; conversely, when the molding temperature is lowered, the corresponding curing time needs to be extended. The molding temperature should be chosen between the fastest cure speed and the optimum molding conditions. It is generally believed that the SMC molding temperature is between 120 and 155 °C.

SMC Mold in Heavy truck industry

MDC Mould, as a professional SMC Mold maker in china, provided SMC Mold as well as solution in heavy truck industry.

SMC (Sheet Molding Compound) works well for heavy duty truck parts, especially ones requiring complexity, strength, and impact resistance.  One of the projects MDC mould is working on is a heavy truck with these SMC parts, including roof spoiler and passenger’s truck fender extensions.  Each of these SMC parts is very complex in geometry because of its complex application. The following is a picture of one of the SMC fender extensions.

If a part needed this much complexity was manufactured with sheet metal, it would have many more pieces of the assembly and much more bracing.  Metal would also not have the resistance to corrosion and impact that is enjoyed by this composite part.

This fender extension with SMC material is from a truck that has been on the road since 1993, with over 270,000 miles on it.  So you can obviously see that composite material has a good application.

Please keep us informed when any new projects required for discussion.
