Automatic molding, a semi-automated form of compression molding, is the process Sunkoo uses for the manufacture of medium-volume to large-volume net molded and near net molded PTFE components. The automatic molding process requires dedicated tooling, typically requires minimal operator intervention and plastic parts can be fabricated relatively rapidly.
With the use of precise tooling and processing, parts manufactured using the automatic molding process can be produced to relatively close tolerances, but not to the accuracy of a fully machined part. Components are economically molded by utilizing a process of automated filling of the die cavity, applying pressure, and part ejection.
The Sunkoo molding department has the capability to produce compression molded PTFE rod and tube stock to meet and exceed your exact specifications and tolerances. Sunkoo has over 1,000 mold sizes to manufacture stock shapes from 1” OD to 26” OD in Virgin PTFE, as well as all industry standard and custom blended materials. One of the benefits of compression molded rod or tube is the relatively low cost of this method. It typically does not require special tooling beyond what Sunkoo already possesses.
With an extensive array of in-house equipment, Sunkoo is your one-stop source to handle all aspects of your compression molding component requirements. Call the specialists at Sunkoo for immediate assistance.
