About Closed Molding Processes

SMC Compression Molding ProcessClosed molding processes are ideal for efficient fabrication of consistent, quality parts at medium and high volume, with relatively little waste and harmful emissions.

There are many processes within this family, known by various names. You’ll find a dedicated page on each process that we offer (see menu list) explaining the process and benefits.

If you are not sure which process is best for your project, start with the chart below. Processes are organized by typical volume and a relational gauge on economic factors.

For new products, a low volume process such as open molding is often practical for early stages.
