Compression Press
Wabash MPI (Wabash, Ind.) has introduced the E-Series, the first all-electric compression molding press designed for round-the-clock performance in a lab or on the production floor. The presses are reportedly clean, quiet to operate and offer greater precision and reliability than hydraulically driven presses.

Compression molding press
Wabash MPI's (Wabash, Ind., U.S.A.) new Model PS3H-8-CLX benchtop compression molding press features precision controlled 50-lb to 6,000-lb clamp force via a proportional pneumatic pressure control system that requires only a 100-psi compressed air source. The press comes with or without vacuum chamber and integral
