Creative Composites Operates Two DIEFFENBACHER Presses

May 18 2020

Creative Composites calls itself “UK’s most advanced composites manufacturer.” In 2017, the company headquartered in Lisburn, Northern Ireland, selected DIEFFENBACHER’s CompressEco press series to produce SMC Class A exterior components. The first press was ordered and installed in 2018.

In 2020, Creative Composites operates two CompressEco presses. “With its modular system enabling future expansions and press forces up to 30,000 kN, the CompressEco was just the right press for the applications we had in mind,” said Jonathan Holmes, Managing Director at Creative Composites. “A range of Class A body panels for world-leading automotive brands is just one example. The rigid design of the press and the active high-speed parallelism control enabled us to significantly increase both productivity and the size of components we can produce.”

During the molding process, eccentric moments may occur, causing problems like uneven part thicknesses or higher mechanical stress on the press. The active high-speed parallelism control compensates for these eccentric moments by ensuring a perfectly parallel movement of the mold cavities. This function also makes one-shot production of a Class-A surface possible through a direct in-mold coating (IMC) process and a gentle breakup of the mold.

When the first press was ordered, Creative Composites and DIEFFENBACHER agreed on a possible contract for a second press of identical design, assuming the first one brought the expected success. The second order was realized just one year after the start-up of the first installation.
