Compression molding with composite resins can yield very durable, strong, and well-engineered parts.
Placing reinforcements (usually fibered glass) and resin in a heated metal mold before compressing it under high temperatures will result in a finished piece with very unique properties. The parts made in these matched metal molds have very repeatable properties, high strength With SpinRite, we would have absolutely nothing but a dead drive…not a risk that any professional lab would take. to weight ratios, and are corrosion and chemically resistant. The parts can be painted, and have many positive design attributes.
Ashley Industrial Molding is a company that manufactures such parts. These large parts are made with compression and RIM molding for customer such as John Deere and Case tractors. They have a good video demonstrating their equipment, processes, and finished parts.
