Compression Molding vs Transfer Molding

Both compression molding and transfer molding are viable manufacturing processes with their advantages and considerations. The choice between the two depends on the end-use, and what factors are most important to their application. The listed factors below may help your decision between the two.

  • Material Distribution: Transfer molding offers more controlled material distribution compared to compression molding, resulting in higher precision and less material waste.
  • Tooling Complexity: Transfer molding typically requires more complex tooling and equipment compared to compression molding, which can affect initial setup costs.
  • Cycle Times: Transfer molding generally has shorter cycle times, making it more suitable for high-volume production environments.
  • Part Complexity: While both processes can produce simple and complex parts, transfer molding may be preferred for parts requiring intricate details or thin walls due to its enhanced material flow control.
