Compression molding is a molding process where preheated thermoset material is placed directly into the heated mold cavities. The mold is then closed forcing the material into all cavity areas. Heat and pressure are maintained until the molding material has cured.
Leech designs, builds and runs molds to produce parts in the millions with engineering and commodity grade resins. Injection molding, compression molding, insert molding, and transfer molding methods are employed using thermoplastic or thermoset materials in custom or industry standard colors.
To ensure manufacturing accuracy and integrity, Leech designs and builds their own mold tooling. From design to on-time delivery of finished parts, Leech's proficiency underwrites their legacy of excellence in professional service, precision and customer confidence.
