Vinyl Pressing Overview

Whilst essentially pressing records is an age old technology there have been modifications to make it more efficient such as electronically controlled presses. The basic principle is that we start with a hydraulic press fitted with two pre-heated moulds and fitted with stampers (which holds your music!).

The pre-heated vinyl matter is forced into the machine and sandwiched between two completely dry labels and the stampers are copied exactly into the vinyl matter. During this process the labels and vinyl matter are pressed under a pressure of 100 or more tons at a temperature of 160°C (345°F).

After the pressing mould is sufficiently cooled, the press opens and the vinyl record is removed, trimmed to the required size and visually inspected.
