Rotomolding offers design possibilities that traditional plastic molding is incapable of producing.
Although rotational molding is a simple idea, the machinery involved is quite complex and requires expertise in design and engineering to make each product successful.
Step 1 – A unique mold is created
Step 2 – The mold is filled with plastic in powder or pellet form
Step 3 – The mold is rotated along two axes or spun around inside of a large oven so that the plastic covers each part of the mold uniformly
Step 4 – The mold continues to rotate is it cools from the oven and then the plastic product is removed
From idea to completion you would work with professional designers to perfect your product. Designers are responsible for creating the mold that will produce your final product. Many designers are also engineers and can implement more complex designs with precision. Some plastic products have moving parts or must be completed in phases or separate pieces in order to create the whole product. Rotational molding has the potential to create almost any product.
