A few words from Tim...

Welcome to a scorcher of a newsletter that's matching the weather at the moment! Hope you enjoy this month's article as much as we're enjoying the sunshine.

This month we're looking at compression moulding.


Compression moulding is a traditional manufacturing processes which seems to be talked about less frequentley these days within our 'addititive world', and yet we find they can be really useful for specific requirments and can even be tailored to suit prototyping qunatities.

If you are unsure wheather a process will suit your project, we urge you, get in touch with us sooner rather than later before the design is fixed and it's too far down the track to change, as this could limit your options and lead to unnecessary disappointment.

Being July, summer holiday season is well and truly upon us, and i'd like to reassure you that neither Plunkett Associates, or Adept Precision have a shutdown period.

We may have flagged a little in the heat, but with the aid of fans, short sleeved shirts and plenty of cold water, spirts have remained high and projects have been completed on time as promised!

Remember, if we can do anything to help as you are trying to get away for your time off, please just let us know.

We take a break form the newsletter next month but as always remain at your service, (in all weathers!), and wish you a wonderful summer.

So give us a call, we are happy to advise and support, and remain as always, at your service.

Compression Moulding

Compression Moulding is a great process that is commonly used for thermoset materials, such as silicone and a variety of rubbers.

One of the primary benefits of compression moulding is the large range of flexible materials that can be moulded; these include Neoprene, Nitrile, EPDM, Fluroelastomers and Silicone rubbers as well as loaded ESD and conductive materials.

It is possible to mould parts through the majority of the IRHD or Shore A range of hardness, and in a range of clear and opaque colours.
