Compression Molding

Vaupell produces a wide variety of thermoset compression molded parts that offer a more cost-effective, lightweight, thermally stable, close tolerance solution to metals. In comparison to Autoclave molding Compression molding is used for high volume, quick cycle times without sacrificing strength. We have extensive experience with processing a broad range of thermoset resin/fiber-reinforced BMC & SMC materials. In addition, we have the capability to design and manufacture tooling in-house allowing us to support a wide range of compression molding applications. The range of secondary operations offered by Vaupell converts the compression-molded components into finished products & assemblies.
