Thanks to our experience in the sector, our production is constantly growing and our product range is expanding continuously. In addition to the standard offer, we are able to provide our customers with any special product, just from the design stage. Our presses, featuring a pressing capacity of up to 800t, enable us to achieve excellent quality levels.
We also manufacture moulded parts for third parties with the same care and precision as we use for our own production.
It is a moulding method where the material, generally consisting of composite materials, like thermosetting resin loaded with glass fibres and made in sheets (SMC), is introduced inside paired moulds. The mould is then closed with very high force by vertical presses.
The material, thereby pressurized, adheres to all the parts of the mould, while temperature and pressure are maintained until the material has hardened.
The main advantage of this technique is that it enables producing even complex-shaped parts in quite a short time. From the moulding process, it is possible to obtain even non-uniform thicknesses directly, with stripes, studs, flanges, holes, etc., also with metal inserts, in order to eliminate a series of subsequent operations, making it particularly suitable for composite parts with high production volumes.
Up to the present, this technology is most widely used in the production of boxes, switchboards and components with high physical and mechanical characteristics for the electrical energy distribution sector, as well as for the automotive industry, such as bumpers.
From powder or granules, it is the most common technology for the transformation of thermoplastic materials. From a hopper the material moves into a heated chamber where it softens. It is then pushed into a mould by a piston or screw. The pressure is maintained until the mass has hardened sufficiently to be extracted from the mould.
This way variously-shaped and –sized parts are produced discontinuously, weighing between a few grams and several kilos.
The main advantages of this technology are as follows:
