Once the mold has been assembled, a charge of compound is placed into a chamber or pot.
As the press closes, a plunger, which is part of the tool design, forces the material through a system of runners and sprues and into the mold cavity itself.
Once the material has been cured, the press is opened and the plunger withdrawn. The mold is then disassembled and the product is removed.
