Greenerd Press & Machine Co. Inc. of Nashua, N.H., has expanded its line of compression molding machines, increasing clamping-force tonnages up to 10,000 tons and bed sizes to more than 240 inches.
The bigger machines are well-suited for a range of compression molding applications, such as automotive parts, electrical components, housewares and appliances, the company said.
Greenerd's machines feature a four-post design aimed at minimizing the deflection and “lean back” that can happen with many C-frame presses.
The design also enables the press to be loaded from all four sides, making the machine easy to integrate into production lines or work cells, according to the company.
The presses feature a cycle that evacuates gasses while a part is being cured in the mold.
