lower tooling costs

for short runs and legacy parts

Most technical components comprise numerous elements of different dimensions. Their functionality once assembled is dependent on each element fitting perfectly together. Precision moulding is critical to this process.

Compression moulding

Known also as thermosetting, compression moulding is the traditional forming method relying on heat and pressure to mould durable and dimensionally stable plastic materials. Often for safety applications. It’s how Broanmain started in 1956.

Today, we continue to use legacy and new compression tools, creating parts for:

  • Aerospace and railway components
  • Thermal electrical fittings
  • Switches and valves that resist chemical corrosion
  • Fire- and impact-resistant safety equipment
  • Medical devices

A Dough Moulding Compound is widely used for manufacturing gaskets, seals, and grommets. We can achieve more detailed and complex features with Direct Screw Transfer (DST), moulding thermoset materials such as epoxy, phenolic, DAP, alkyd and DMC vertically in an injection moulding machine.

Our Bipel, Bradley & Turton and Daniels compression moulding machines range from 25 to 150 tons. They are equipped with vacuum moulding systems to efficiently mould rubber, silicone and composites materials
