Compression and Transfer Molding

Since its inception, Soucy Baron has taken advantage of its extensive knowledge of compression molding techniques to bring its customers innovative products. The fabrication of shoe soles has been, and remains, an important activity for our company. Over time, we have acquired a critical expertise in compression molding and overmolding with several types of rubbers and silicones, whether colored or black.

Compression molding consists of placing a pre-formed piece of the mix in the cavities of the mold heated by the press plates.  

As for the transfer molding, it consists of placing a piece of rubber in a heated shooting pot which, by the effect of compression when the mold is closed, transfers the material in the mold cavities.

This pressure forces the rubber to take the shape of the cavity (depending on the product to be made) and the excess rubber, called flash, flows around the cavity. The part is then trimmed to remove flash.
