During compression moulding of sheet moulding compounds, voids are formed that can deteriorate the properties of the final product. A large number of processing and material parameters can however be tuned in order to reduce the amount of voids. A factorial design is here applied to plan an experimental series where, in particular, vacuum assisted mouldings are carried out in a circular shaped mould. One result is that the electrical insulation can be considerably improved by choosing optimal processing conditions. Another is that the size of weld lines can be reduced in the same fashion.
