Billet Press

Our billet molding department is also capable of molding virgin PTFE as well as all the various common and exotic filled compounds.  Our billet press has a capacity of 200 tons and we currently have in-house tooling to mold up to an 8" diameter cylinder, typically 6 inches in length.  However, we can mold up to 8 inches in length with some tooling.

Prolon, Inc. utilizes this process to mold larger diameter pre-forms typically for heavy cross section and lower volume jobs.

Once molded, the pre-forms head to our sintering department where the microprocessor controlled ovens are programmed to cure our products with extreme accuracy.  This produces a stress relieved pre-form which is now ready for maching.
