SMC presses

Sheet Moulding Compound press graphic

The Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) is a mass produced from thermosetting fiber-resin compounds and is used primarily in closed-die compression molding.

  • High-precision positioning and accurate closed loop control of the axes in synchronization (4 axes or possibly more)
  • Pressure and/or force control of the control axes
  • Dynamic control valves, multi-axis-enabled closed loop control electronics
  • Cylinder with position measuring system (integrated / external)

Rexroth solutions:

Control valves (usually WRCE , WRDE or WRTE )

Variable displacement pumps (usually A4VSO and A10VSO ) and internal gear pumps (usually PGH )

Closed and open loop control via MAC8

High-precision Profiled rail systems for the slide guide

Mechanical drives (ball screw assemblies) for auxiliary axes

Transfer systems for transport of workpieces

Handling units for feeding and/or removing of workpieces

Pneumatic components are to be found in the Pneumatics Catalog
