Platenparallelism control for injection compression moulding is included in the standard version of the machine.
HDPE/HDPE-g-MA (95/5) and HDPE/HDPE-g-MA/clay with [alpha] values of 1 to 4 were melt compounded using a twin screw extruder, and then processed via three different routes: compression moulding, compression moulding followed by biaxial stretching or blown film extrusion.
The nanocomposite pellets produced above were then processed via the following routes: compression moulding, compression moulding followed by biaxial stretching and blown film extrusion.
Compression Moulding. Pellets produced in the twin screw extruder were compression moulded into sheets using a Dr Collin P200P platen press.
The breakthrough process, which combines compression moulding and blow moulding, delivers significant advantages over conventional processes, providing enhanced quality, higher productivity, sustainability benefits, and the potential for lightweighting.
"Tests at our company have shown that with present-day materials and modern injection compression moulding tools and machinery, low-stress roofs with an area of up to 1.7sqm are quite feasible."
