C.A. Lawton Co. of Green Bay, Wis., introduced its 700-ton Lawton Advanced Thermoset compression molding press, for molding highly filled cross-linked resins with very fast cure times.
Cure times for the machine range from 10-12 seconds. The machine boasts exceptionally fast pressing speeds, up to 175 inches per minute, according to Lawton. The robust, rigid moving and stationary plates are designed to limit diagonal deflection to less than 0.001 inch per foot.
A pre-compressed tonnage ram hydraulic circuit delivers “bumpless” transition from rapid close to pressing stages.
