For nearly 90 years, we have been a technological leader in designing and building hydraulic machinery for compression molding, transfer molding and vacuum molding.

Compression Molding Presses

Our compression molding presses are perfect for sheet forming, lamination, powder forming & compaction, and of course, compression molding. We make presses in many configurations including C-Frame or Gap, Tie Rod with bushing guides, and Tie Bar with gib guides amongst others. Having a variety to choose from and the ability to have them custom tailored to your needs, makes Trinks the logical choice.

Shuttle Presses

A shuttle is ideal when looking to increase productivity. Generally a shuttle is employed to move molds between multiple processes, move multiple molds in and out of processing, and between an operator and a process. Some advantages of owning a shuttle are reduced labor needs, improved efficiency, and ergonomic compatibility for maximum output, on time and on budget.

Transfer Molding Presses

Transfer molding is a great option when injection is not. These presses are suited for molding with thermosets like epoxy, polyester, diallyl phthalate, and silicone. Transfer molding creates less flash and is ideal for applications requiring higher precision geometries.

Truss Frame

Truss presses are designed for high load and large spans. This design uses a set of pillars connected by beams to carry loads and transmit forces over large spans. 

A trussed-press design is modular and can be configured using a single truss or multiple sets of trusses. This modular approach can accommodate large and lengthy platen sizes that would normally be cost prohibitive using traditional Tie Bar or Slab Side construction. 

Similar to a Tie Bar press, a system of gibs are used to maintain parallelism and squareness of the working surfaces. Gib-guided presses are uniquely suited to endure the rigors of the most demanding applications. 

They are excellent at resisting lateral forces and the gibs can be adjusted over time to maintain parallelism and squareness.

Vacuum Molding Presses

Vacuum molding is an option that can be added to both the compression and transfer presses. This feature can take the form of a chamber, hood, or direct to mold connection. Vacuum can be utilized to degas materials, reduce heat loss, aid flow, and reduce porosity. Adding vacuum to your molding process is advantageous when looking for improved quality and consistency.
