Rotational molding is one of many plastic processes specifically known for producing extremely durable parts with a very long lifespan. Many materials can be roto-molded but polyethylene is the most commonly used material. Requirements for this process includes a mold or tool, which can be built by a number of methods, including casting, machining or fabricating a mold. Design for rotomolding is essential to successful part production. Granger Plastics Company is an authority in rotational molding with specialized experience with large, complex products, complete offering of secondary services including, trim, assembly, foam filling, packaging, drop shipping, material conversion from less durable materials to polyethlene and more. The rotomolding experts at Granger Plastics can help you determine if the rotational molding process is right to produce your part or project.
Rotational Molding is an extremely specialized and unique process. Heat is used to melt and fuse plastic resin in a closed mold. Unlike most other plastic molding processes, no pressure is involved. The four-stage process includes loading the resin in the mold, heating and fusing the resin, cooling and finally unloading the part from the mold. After the charged mold is moved into an oven, the mold is rotated simply upon a rotating two axes arm at a low speed. As heat penetrates the mold, the resin adheres to the mold's inner surface until it is completely fused. The mold is then cooled by air or water spray or a combination of both, while still rotating, thus lowering the temperature in a gradual manner. The mold is opened, finished part removed and the mold is recharged for the next cycle. A variety of materials are available. The most widely used is polyethylene. Other potential materials include plastisols, nylon, fluoropolymers, polycarbonate, polypropylene, polyurethane, and elastomers. With the Rotational Molding process, parts can be molded economically in a variety of shapes and sizes, many of them would be impossible to produce by any other process.
