Vacuum Systems

The benefits of adding vacuum to compression molding have been know by seal manufacturers for many years.  Today other molding companies find that vacuum shortens cure times, reduces scrap, and improves part quality by eliminating degas issues.  EMPCO provides two designs: one design uses a vacuum box to encapsulate the mold only, the other actually encapsulates the entire press opening with steel doors(as shown below).  Try a vacuum press today, and increase shop productivity, with improved quality, and more parts per cycle.

Available Options


Complete Hydraulic Circuits and Electric Controllers.

High pressure and low pressure systems, pre-fill systems, and self contained systems. For use with all presses up acting, down acting, c-frame, and press lines.   Any speeds and pressure available.

EMPCO manufactures hydraulic circuits with 2 pump systems at standard speeds of 60IPM to 300IPM volume speeds(low pressure speeds) and 5IPM to 50IPM pressing(high pressure speeds). EMPCO also sells pre-fill systems with speeds up to 800IPM(low pressure speeds) with single pump systems.  Some other options are below:

EMPCO electrical circuits typically contain Allen Bradley 1000 Micro Series to 500 Series PLC controls.  These are coupled with Panelview displays.  EMPCO offers DC proportional control, linear positioning, bumping cycles, time delay, cycle programming, and Temperature profiling through the PLC.  The systems EMPCO offers can be manual or automatically controlled or both.  We build some of the most high tech systems for todays molding needs.  Please contact to quote today!
