Mold-Man™ 8000

The Moldman™ 8000 is ideal for low to high volume production quantities. It is an automated single station Low Pressure Molding machine. The Moldman™ 8000 is equipped with a 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 moldset providing easy access for loading and unloading molded components.

Moldman™ Machines are designed exclusively for Low Pressure Molding. They are integrated, purpose built LPM machines, designed without maintenance intensive items.

  • No heated hoses
  • No exposed heated joints
  • No exposed moving injection nozzles
