Compression molding was invented in the early 1900s to mold phenolic material. Some advantages of compression style molding are lower cost of tooling and equipment. The ability to produce quality products at high volumes but cost effective enough to handle low volume runs as well. Compression molding is highly effective when producing rubber to metal bonded product at a variety of sizes.
Transfer molding while tooling is more costly than compression tooling the increased speed in production will recover your investment much sooner than with compression tooling. Transfer molding is also capable of repeatedly producing tight tolerance product with med to high volume requirements.
