Rotational molding parts, forms hollow parts of infinite size, using powdered plastic resin.
Roto molding, is typically used in a multitude of industries that includes plastic products such as, containers, crates, pallets, floats, and water tanks, plus more. Roto casting, is a technique unlike most other plastic methods, there is no pressure involved. Complex shapes are a great fit when creating large parts and for capturing undercuts.
- Materials available include, but not limited to:
- Cross—Linked Polyethylene (XLPE)
- High—Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
- Linear Low—Density Polyethylene (LLDPE)
- Polyethylene (PE)
Rotational molding process, is a technology involves a heated mold. Molds are created, either in aluminum or steel. The mold closes and rotated slowly on two axis. Then heated in an oven rotating the polymer material as it slowly melts and lays-up on the inside of the mold. Once the material powder has fully melted, the mold is moved to a cooling platform to be cooled, usually with air or sometime with a fine mist of water. And as the mold cools the part solidifies. Once the polymer material has fully cooled enough to release away from the mold surface, the process is terminated. The product is then de-molded out of the mold, (take out).

There is almost no limit to size for roto prototype molding or production parts. Rotational molding offers far more flexibility in the design process for your products and components as well.
