At French we are proud to create, manufacture and support custom hydraulic press designs that are engineered to meet your exact needs. They are typically used for rubber molding, composite molding, lamination, forming, bonding and various other applications. Our hydraulic press designs generally range from bob体育赞助阿森纳 to 2,000 tons with either sideplate or column construction, C-frame or H-frame, and up-acting or down-acting capabilities. We also offer various heated platen sizes for compression, transfer, lamination or vacuum molding. In addition to our own line of hydraulic presses, French offers presses engineered by TMP, A Division of French.
The Benefits of French bob体育竞技风暴网 Designs
As an ISO-certified, 4th-generation family-owned U.S. company who has grown to serve business all around the world, our presses are well known in the industry for quality and dependability. Our heavy-duty construction guarantees many years of reliable operation with minimum downtime. For example, many French hydraulic presses built in the 1940’s and 1950’s still perform reliably today.
French’s hydraulic press designs are continually being improved by quality driven programs. We consistently upgrade them with enhancements in automation and advanced electrical control systems. So, when our clients work with us, they know they have access to the top-of-the-line technology and resources. Our hydraulic presses are world-renowned for their superior value, very low deflection, rugged construction, patented taper keys, long life and industry-leading three-year warranty. Our floor standing hydraulic press models deliver uniform molded parts that require less post handling and fewer rejected parts. We typically engineer our custom hydraulic presses to deliver 0.001″ deflection per linear foot, but we can design systems to meet either tighter or larger deflection targets. Ultimately, we build our products to help optimize your process, improve part quality and give you the lowest life cycle costs.
Automatic bob体育竞技风暴网 Solutions
French offers numerous production-improving hydraulic press automation solutions to complement our reliable hydraulic press designs. Whether you want to retrofit your existing hydraulic press, or you are in the market for a new press system, French engineers partner with you to understand your processing applications and custom design the best solution for your manufacturing requirements. From individual options such as light curtains, vacuum packages, shuttle systems and loading/unloading systems to complete integrated turnkey systems, French will supply solutions that can increase production, save energy and improve part quality while lowering your operating costs. An example is provided below:
Depending on the part, material, volume, part size and part shape requirements, we can optimize a particular molding process for cost and part quality. Some of the most commonly used molding processes include:
- Cast Molding
- Compaction Molding
- Compression Press Molding
- Injection Molding
- Reaction Injection Molding (RIM)
- Structural Reinforced RIM (SRIM)
- Transfer Molding Press
