French Oil Mill Machinery Co. (Piqua, OH, US) and TMP, A Division of French, are featuring a self-contained, three-press system with one central press controller for compression molding of composite medical parts. Each compression press is designed with three daylights, totaling nine pressing surfaces for increased production rates. Each press is capable of 10 tons pressing capacity. The 6-inch square solid-steel plate pressing surfaces are designed with one heat-and-cool zone per platen and independent setpoints on each lower and upper platen, for energy efficiency and consistent temperatures throughout the molding process. Each pressing surface is equipped with a programmable fan to accelerate temperature reduction on the mold during the cooling cycle. The press controller consists of a NEMA-type enclosure and is mounted on the side of the press system. The new generation PLC microprocessor system features a 10.5-inch color screen interface. The press controller shows a digital readout of press force for sampling, concurrent with sampling of temperature. Press force is recorded in the system, as well as time and temperature history, which can be used to confirm process repeatability. Booth N29.
