Creative Composites has invested in its fourth compression moulding press.

The press will generate 1,500T of moulding pressure and will be capable of processing tools up to 3 m by 2 m in size. The press includes features such as an active levelling system which the company says is unique within the UK. The new press can also achieve results such as advanced control, high levels of quality, high levels of accuracy as well as reducing energy consumption by up to 70%.

The new press will be used to meet growing demand in the automotive, aerospace, truck, bus, and construction sectors.
