So called SMC/BMC is sheet molding compound and bulk molding compound. Both process are compression molding methods.
Comparing to hand lay up process, SMC/BMC are more efficient and lower labor cost. Each circle is just several minutes depending on the thickness. The machines can keep on working for 7x24 hours. Thanks to the good performance offiberglass material, now SMC/BMC parts are applied on various fields, typically including auto parts, housing appliances and structural parts, electrical parts, train parts, real way station components, etc. The disadvantage of this process is the high investment on the mould production. Therefore this method is suitable for the parts with big volume.
At present, our best machine is 2500 ton capacity, which can produce the parts with project area 2.5 square meters and 90cm height.
