The most common choice for high-volume and high strength composite parts molding are SMC, GMT and BMC press machines. Using these types of presses, matched metal dies are mounted within a molding press and using extremely high pressures, complex components can be molded into place. These presses are extremely well suited for the shaping of complex shapes which include ribs, bosses and inserts.

SMC and related presses are most often used in the automotive, aviation and construction industries for the molding of precision parts. With SMC, GMT and BMC presses, the most frequently used materials include fiberglass, carbon fiber, reinforced thermoplastics and other composite materials. All our hydraulic SMC and related molding presses can be operated both automatically and semi-automatically for added versatility and come with digitally-controlled temperature controllers for optimum performance.

As we are able to fully customize our outstanding range of SMC, GMT and BMC press machines, our customers can be sure to receive high quality presses tailor-made to meet their precision molding requirements. Moreover with SMC and related press machines, color compounds can be easily used, in-mold coatings are easy to apply and trimming and finishing costs are very small. When looking for a custom made and highly efficient SMC, GMT or BMC press, look no further than Lien Chieh.




These types of presses are used in the fast and efficient molding of complex automotive parts, aviation components and other specialized parts. By being able to mold complex shapes in one go using very strong and lightweight composite components, these types of presses ideal are for high-end car bodywork.
