The production of moulded parts requires the creation of tooling in which the number of impressions depends on the necessary production rates.
The number of impressions determines the dimensions of the mould and therefore the press to use.
The definition of the type of moulding, by compression or by injection, is determined by the quantity to be produced.
Injection allows short vulcanisation cycles, but the cost of tooling is higher.
It is therefore necessary to accurately define the production rates required and the operational lifetime of the part.
A mould is created for a precise mixture (shrinkage problem). It is therefore imperative for the laboratory to analyse the specification beforehand in order to define the mixture and the shrinkage.
Different metals are used to form the tooling; they are chosen as a function of the number of parts to be produced.
Our production capacities allow us to mould parts from several grams up to 1200 x 1000 mm parts.
