PIQUA, Ohio—French Oil Mill Machinery Co. has designed and built a multi opening, 600-ton hydraulic press system for rubber molding applications.
The firm said the press features eight openings for compression molding of multiple rubber parts each cycle, which will increase production rates. The press' hydraulic system consists of a self-contained oil hydraulic unit with a steel constructed reservoir and hydraulic pump combination powered by an energy efficient motor.
French said the press includes an operator friendly interface screen that displays real time data and allows for programming of the machine recipe. Visual alarms detect pressure faults, allowing the operator to troubleshoot on-screen.
