Compression molding is a method of applying heat and pressure to raw materials, such as rubber or plastic, to make them into specific shapes. A heated press is used to shape the material by forcing it into a mold. Once the material has cooled, which only takes a few minutes, it can be removed from the mold.
Process of Compression Molding
The process of compression molding uses heat and pressure to form raw materials into specific shapes by forcing them into molds. After heating and shaping the materials in a press, they are allowed to cool for only a couple of minutes before being removed from the molds and cut or trimmed for use.
This technique is often used in the manufacturing of rubber or plastic products, especially those that are too large to be created using injection molding. Some examples of items made by this process include automotive parts, electrical connectors, and household goods.
Advantages of Compression Molding
Compression molding has many benefits over other methods of forming rubber and plastic products. It works well with materials that heat up easily and is strong enough to retain their shape after being formed. The process lends itself best to creating relatively large parts because small devices would cool quickly during the process and not allow enough time for shaping.
