Ensinger’s large diameter press is capable of molding up to 81” in diameter in materials such as TECAPEEK, glass filled TECAPEEK, and glass filled TECATRON PPS. This press allows for a larger diameter than any other manufacturer. Ensinger can also mold virgin PTFE and UHMW shapes over 25” in diameter.Ensinger offers a variety of products that can be compression molded.
