2.1 MACHINE DESCRIPTION
The CCM series of hydraulic presses is specially designed to produce thermoplastic products by means of
compression. A continuous work-cycle is carried out during which plastic material is fed from a plasticization unit,
cut into suitably gauged pellets and then inserted inside the molds.
A hydraulic system is employed to close the molds at a pressure that can be regulated while the production cycle
is being performed.
The time required for cooling down is strictly related to the speed at which the molding turret runs.
The main machine parts are illustrated in the figure.

MACHINE FEATURES
2.1.1.1.2 Metering pump (optional)
The metering pump controls the flow of the melt and determines the weight of the pellets. The material enters the
pump casing 1 (heated by elements EH7) through a suction flange 6 and is pushed by suitable gears 2 (driven by
geared motor M8) towards a delivery flange 7. The latter then sends the material to the feed tube.
A cooling circuit is installed at the ends of the shaft to prevent the plastic compound from flowing out abruptly.
The pressures of the suction and delivery lines are measured by transducers BP1 and BP2 respectively. The pump
temperature is controlled by thermocouple BT7.

MACHINE FEATURES
2.1.1.4 Molding unit
The hydraulic actuators and molds are located in the molding unit. They are used to form, cool down and remove
the pellets of molten plastic that are sent to them from the insertion turret. The finished product is then placed on
the stripper wheel.
Motion is transmitted from the drive unit to the molding unit through a pulley 14 and belt 13.
The distributor 11 delivers the cooling fluid to the upper and lower tools, oil under pressure to the hydraulic actuators
and compressed air to the molds. The hydraulic actuators 8 are mounted on the lower body of the turret 9.
A mold 7 (lower) is provided with each of the actuators. The mold receives the pellets that are then formed and
cooled down.
The actuator 8 is hydraulically driven. The various stages of its movement are piloted by a ball valve 10, that is
mounted next to the actuator itself.
A duct 12, for the molds 7 coolant, passes through the actuators rod. The upper molds are mounted on the upper
turret body 3.
The relative rods 16, that drive the devices used for stripping the product, are mounted on the circumference further
inside compared to that of the upper molds. A fork 6, whose task is to act on the stripper, is keyed to the rod.
The stripper rods 16 are controlled by a fixed cam 4 that acts on rollers 15 secured to the same rods.
In addition, the machine is equipped with a number of pneumatic valves 1 so that the product can be removed by
blowing air into the upper molds.
These valves send air under pressure to each mold. From the air supply system the compressed air first flows
through an accumulator that keeps its pressure constant and then through a ring that directs it to the valves 1. The
air then reaches the flow controls found near the molds.
The upper molds are cooled down by the coolant that runs through the duct 5.
Two drive systems may be performed to remove the product when certain tools (fig. 2.1.1.4/B) are used. The upper
mold 2 is driven both by the stripper rod 16 and cam 17 that acts on a wheel found in the middle of the mold.

The cooling system is used to deliver coolant at a controlled temperature (refer to the data sheet for the values) to
the following parts:
- hydraulic power units water/oil exchanger
- extruder
- upper molds
- lower molds
The system includes a cooling unit (optional) which delivers the fluid at a low temperature to a thermal control
unit that provides the flow of coolant. Each delivery is brought to a certain temperature and sent to the respective
points of use.
2.1.1.9 Electric system: control board
All the information regarding the control board is given in chapter 6 - OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS and the
Instructions B manual.
2.1.1.10 Molds
The molds are strictly related to the kind of product being handled as they include the parts that come into contact
with the plastic material and form it.
As these are size related parts, they are described in detail during the training sessions.

6.3 PRODUCTION CYCLE
The production cycle for continuous molding by means of compression develops from a complete rotation of the
molding turret as illustrated in the figures below.
The work position of the actuators are shown in the figures. These correspond to the numbers actually marked on
the actuators.
E0004
ATTENTION!
A standard cycle is illustrated, it may vary depending on the type of caps that need to be produced.
PRODUCTION STAGE
1 PELLET INSERTION
The pellets of plastic compound (DM) are picked up by the nozzle through the insertion turret (GI) and are deposited
in the mold (MA) of the actuator.
32 ACTUATOR PAUSE
The mold (MA), that contains the pellet, turns while staying down (A).
31/30 APPROACH
The valve that controls the actuators when up (B) (with oil at low pressure) opens thereby causing the mold of the
actuator (MA) to move up until it reaches its molding start position.
29 MOLDING
The valve that controls the actuators when up (C) (with oil at high pressure) opens a second time thereby causing
the mold to move up until the pellets of plastic compound (DM) are completely formed.
28-6 PRODUCT COOLING
While the turret is turning, the formed product (PS) stays in its pressing position and cools down.
5 ACTUATOR DOWNWARD MOVEMENT
The valve that controls the actuators when down (A) is activated thereby causing the mold to move down while the
formed product remains attached to the upper punch (PU).
4-2 ACTUATOR PAUSE
The mold is empty and waits for another pellet (DM) to be inserted.
1 PRODUCT REMOVAL
The formed product (PS) is removed from the stripper ring (ES) and placed on the stripper wheel (SE) which carries
it to the exit channel.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
CONTROL STAGES
30 START OF MOLDING POSITION CONTROL
A sensor controls the correct position for the start of molding (see chapter 7 ADJUSTMENTS).
24 PRODUCT CONTROL
A sensor detects the position of the mold during pressing.
The formed product is classified as follows depending on the position reached by the mold:
- double weight (with double pellets)
- weight greater than nominal value
- weight corresponds to nominal value
- weight lower than nominal value
- no product (pellet not deposited)
DOUBLE THICKNESS
If a number of pieces whose thickness is double the nominal one are detected, the machine automatically carries
out the relative shutdown cycle.
PRODUCT WEIGHT HIGHER OR LOWER THAN STANDARD VALUE
If a number of pieces whose weight is higher or lower than the standard one are detected, the machine carries out
the relative shutdown cycle.
NO PRODUCT
If a number of empty molds (MA) are detected because the pellet was not inserted, the machine carries out the
relative shutdown cycle.

WARNING!
The control valves are equipped with a ring nut to tighten the threaded control rod only to the value set for the
valve.
Do not remove the ring nut and fully tighten the control rod to avoid creating dangerously high pressures in the
hydraulic system.
Always monitor the pressure with the relative pressure gauge while making adjustments/performing
maintenance.
7.5.1 ADJUSTING THE APPROACH STAGE (LOW PRESSURE)
The stroke the actuator carries out to reach the punch is approximately 15 mm less than its total stroke and is
carried out with oil under low pressure. The time employed to carry out this stroke depends on the speed of the
molding turret . As a result, the flow rate of the low pressure circuit is strictly related to the rpm. The position of the
flow control valve
of this circuit is indicated on the Data sheet.
If the flow rate is incorrectly set, the products may have defects and the yellow warning light found on the electrical
cabinet comes on.
A sensor, located near the point where the valve is opened a second time (i.e., oil starts flowing under high pressure),
detects the path of the back-plates that stop the actuators from turning. If the sensor detects a number of back-
plates equal to the total number with a path different from the nominal one consecutively, the machine performs a
controlled shutdown procedure as described in chapter 6 - OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS. Adjust the flow rate of
the low pressure circuit with flow control 19.
Adjust the pressure of the low pressure circuit by working on adjustment valve 6 located.
The values are given on the Data sheet.
E0004
ATTENTION!
If the delivery rate of oil under low pressure is too high, the machine and molds may be seriously damaged.
7.5.2 ADJUSTING THE MOLDING STAGE (HIGH PRESSURE)
The pressure is regulated by working on valve 13 located in the hydraulic power unit.
The value is given on the Data sheet.
7.5.3 ADJUSTING THE ACTUATOR DOWNSTROKE
Work on valve 15 located in the hydraulic power unit to adjust the pressure.
The value is given on the Data sheet.
