Rotational Molding Mold Modification, Repairs & Maintenance
Being a custom rotational molding company, Granger Plastics often inherits existing tooling from customers who have or had previous relationships with other plastics companies, other mold shops and other rotomolding companies. While most often, customers run into quality or product delivery issues from their previous supplier and look to Granger Plastics to provide a higher quality rotationally molded part. Sometimes, the issues are found to exist as a design or tooling issue. Most clients don’t have emergency tool revision time built into the rollout of their new rotomolding project, which is why it’s critical to work with a plastics molding leader, such as Granger right out of the gate to maximize your capital investment, while producing high-quality rotationally molded solutions. However, Granger Plastics regularly accepts new tooling from customers that have either built outside by other tooling shops or other roto-molding suppliers. Many times, the tooling arrives in need of bad repair or in need of modification to achieve the desired results as specified by the customer. Granger Plastics Company will work closely with you to repair your tooling or modify the tooling to produce rotationally molded parts to achieve your desired results to ensure that your project is a success!
Sometimes customers will purchase a company and all of their assets only to find that there is existing molds and tooling necessary for the rotational molding of plastics. Many of these customers will send their tooling for review and rotomolding production to Granger Plastics. Sometimes these tools are in great shape, other times, not so much.
It is imperative to partner with a rotomolding company that can provide in-house mold maintenance and repair services, as many customers have learned that the lead times that can be associated with shipping molds and repairing molds at the small number of mold experts for the rotational molding industry can range from numerous weeks to several months contingent upon the backlog of orders and customer demands. Here at Granger Plastics, we’ve heard customer joke from time to time that it’s only Murphy’s Law with other suppliers that their tooling required maintenance just about every time they placed an order. Delaying their projects and sales, while waiting on the shipping of the molds to a vendor, for the vendor to repair the molds and then for the molds to be shipped back in a timely fashion.
