Mackey Bowley 4 post Hydraulic Down stroking Heated Platen Press

The Mackey Bowley is a recently reconditioned 250 ton compression down stroking presses for moulding thermoplastic materials.

The refurbishment includes a modified PLC controlled process panel with HMI screen operator interface.

The Mackey Bowley down stroking press has made them synonymous with moulding, Rubber, composites,  and a wide range of industrial parts including resin mouldings.

The popularity of thermoformed parts continues to increase demand for heated and platen presses. Once reserved for specialised aerospace applications, compression moulding and hot forming presses are now in widespread use across a variety of industries. These speciality machines are used to form parts from essentially any material, including metal alloys, fiber-reinforced plastics, composites, and rubber. 

Mackey Bowley compression moulding presses are highly sophisticated manufacturing solutions engineered specifically to maximise process efficiency. From maintaining the constant application of heat throughout a specified dwell period, to precision pressure ramping, managing burp cycles and collecting specific cycle data for part quality verification

Industrial Use:

  • Rubber
  • Aerospace and Defence
  • Mining
  • Bearings
  • Forging
  • & many other industries that require compression mould presses


  • Built for long lasting performance
  • Economical trouble free  hydraulics
  • Flexible ejector system
  • Fully automatic powder feed & strip
  • Improved heating efficiency and curing up to  450°C degrees
