The Mold Man® 8000 is ideal for low to high volume production quantities. It is an automated single station Low Pressure Molding machine with an impressive track record. This is our most popular machine often used in three-shift operation.
How do we make a single station machine perform when high yearly volumes are needed? Ask us about our unique moldset solutions, multi cavities, pallet loading systems and more.
The Mold Man® 8000 is equipped with our proprietary pressure control system. This system controls volume and pressure independent of each other providing the flexibility to over-mold complex circuit boards and connectors.
Cooled mold platens eliminate hoses to the mold-set providing easy access for loading and unloading molded components.
