Creative Composites has ordered a state-of-the-art compression moulding press for their composites manufacturing facility in Northern Ireland, UK.

Creative Composites explains the new press will be used to meet growing demand for high quality composite components in the automotive, aerospace, truck, bus, and construction sectors.

The company states it collaborates with global OEMs in each of these sectors, providing a combination of expertise in composite design, efficient manufacturing and focussed customer service.

Creative Composites claim the compression moulding process provides a number of benefits to customers such as good part-to-part repeatability, low cycle times, ability to add many design features, excellent dimensional stability and efficient use of material.

Jonathan Holmes, Commercial Director, Creative Composites, states “We are delighted to confirm that the company is expanding capacity by investing in a fourth compression moulding press. The press will generate 1,500T of moulding pressure and be capable of processing tools of up to three metres by two metres in size. The press will use the most advanced technology available within the industry and include innovative features such as an active levelling system. Another important feature is that the press has been specifically designed to reduce energy consumption by a massive 20%.”
