Composite Molding Presses

SKRL currently employs three presses to compression mold thermoset composite parts. The smallest of these presses has a capacity of 600 tons, and each of the larger presses has a capacity of 1500 tons. The two larger presses have been used to mold as many as eight valve covers at once. All three presses have been proven capable of running parts upwards of twenty-four inches in length and ten inches in width.

Post Processing Resources

SKRL’s post-processing capabilities for compression-molded parts are very similar to the same for die cast parts. SKRL has designed and implemented automated leak testers and checks for components, automated bolt and baffle installation, and even automated RTV sealant application on one product. SKRL’s engineering staff designs and implements these post-processing operations on a part-by-part basis, taking the knowledge gained from previous projects and integrating it into current and future programs.

Molded Composite Products

SKRL molds composite products primarily from vinyl esther bulk and sheet-molding compounds. To date these products have included valve covers and upper engine covers for powertrain applications, although SKRL has the capability to mold composite parts for virtually any application that demands high strength and relatively light weight. SKRL has molded valve covers as large as twelve inches by twenty-four inches in its presses. SKRL has machined, assembled, painted, leak tested, and functionally verified its composite products before shipping them to the customer.
