It doesn't matter whether you call it punch and die tooling, compression tooling or tablet tooling, the final product is still the same, MDC hopes to make the next set of compression tools! For industrial tool applications, new customers trust us every year to consult, design and provide the highest quality compression tools in the industry. MDC Mould is a compression tooling company with high quality level, provides various compression toolings and solutions for many industries and customers. The biggest Hydraulic press machine for MDC is 4000T which can provide customer with a guarantee that the tools perform at highest level and meet customer requirement.

What is tooling in compression?

Compression tooling is the process of tooling in which a preheated polymer is placed into an open, heated tool cavity. The tool is then closed with a top plug and compressed in order to have the material contact all areas of the tool. This process can produce parts with a wide array of lengths, thicknesses, and complexities. Compression tooling is used in agriculture, transportation, electricity, chemicals, building, construction, machinery and other fields. Compression tooling have no detail requirement for material appearance, no matter what shape material it is : Granular, powder, sheet or bulk are all molding into product.

Compression toolings include machine, mould bases, and tools.

  • Compression machine: Provides pressure braking force. There are three types of compression machine toolings: manual, automatic and semi-automatic. MDC buys the new 4000T machine, which solves the problems of trial large parts.
  • Mould bases: The mould bases can be a supporting system of the press, or an independent system that can be disassembled and replaced. It can be combined with the press to achieve the pressing function and action requirements.
  • Toolings: The compression toolings control the forming of parts. We are responsible for the final product and are committed to creating high precision parts that meet customer requirements.

MDC Mould is a China company specialized in making SMC, BMC, GMT, LFT, and Carbon Fiber, have abundant experience in tool designing and manufacturing. MDC have strict quality control system and high-efficiency work team, have many kinds of hydraulic press and oil temperature controller to make sure the compression moulding trial and parts production goes well. MDC provides various compression tools and solutions for many industries and customers. There are several different types of toolings in our business.

SMC tool

SMC tool

Sheet molding compound is glass-reinforced polymeric material, SMC delivers superior strength-to-weight with a Class A surface. The SMC tool primarily used for automotive body panels, institutional seating and various other structural components.

BMC tool

BMC tool

Bulk molding compounds offer great flow properties. Shorter glass fibers lessen the structure reinforcement, which creates a putty-like injection molding compound. BMC tool is used to produce complex components such as electrical equipment, car components, housings for electrical appliances, in large industrial volumes.

carbon fber tool

Carbon fiber tool

Carbon fiber has many excellent properties, such as high axial strength and modulus, low density, ultra-high temperature resistance in non-oxidizing environment, good fatigue resistance, small coefficient of thermal expansion, and good thermal conductivity. MDC has worked with many tier-one molders for Car manufacturers regarding carbon fiber tool projects. This enables us to provide a fast and professional tooling solutions in automotive manufacturing.

GMT tool

GMT tool

GMT is Glass Mat Reinforced Thermoplasitcs, a kind of sheet molding compound with fiber reinforced thermoplastic. MDC Mould has developed kinds of GMT tool for Daimler C, E, and AMG series, including GMT underbody shields, GMT protection cover, GMT brackets, as well as SMC bumper, SMC door panel, SMC Engine hood, etc.

LFT tool

LFT tool

LFT is bulk molding material that feature continuous fiber filaments running the full length of the pellet allowing these materials to exhibit simultaneous improvements in strength, stiffness, and impact resistance over a wide temperature range.
Meanwhile, D-LFT (Direct-long fiber thermoplastics) is available for injection or compression molding. Most D-LFT systems, for injection or compression molding systems, feed glass roving (or other fiber) into a twin-screw extruder (TSE), where it is chopped by the screws as it is mixed with molten polymer and additives that have been metered in separately. To improve surface finish, some systems use knives to prechop the roving prior to entrance into the TSE. This method generally yields a shorter fiber, while the direct roving feed produces longer fibers and yields parts with higher structural performance. Each approach uses different and specialized screw designs.

MDC Mould have provided more than 116 customers with their customized toolings and provides post-compression tooling use guidance and maintenance services. Our tooling design team can anticipate possible problems during the design phase and deal with them. More than 20 years of market experience, enabling us to grasp the development information about the compression industry.

compression tooling&tool FAQs

How to ensure the cleanliness of the compression tooling?

MDC Mould will be strict in polishing with the tool surface when manufacturing. Besides, the anti-rust agent will be sprayed before the tooling is shipped to reduce the loss of tooling when using.

How to prevent wear and control precision of the compression toolings?

Stainless steel is used for compression machine tooling. Our management of steel selection is very strict, and we will also do the hardening of steel. MDC imported advanced equipment, such as five-axis high-speed machining, tries to improve the precision of the tooling.

How to get the best compression tooling?

As the leading manufacture of china compression tooling maker, MDC make SMC tool, BMC tooling, GMT tooling and carbon fiber tooling. Carbon fiber tooling is used for Automotive industry and met development requirements of light weight applications such as carbon fiber hood tooling. Now MDC has already made oversized auto moulds, for example 12 meters of bus outer accessoriescity.
