Rotational Molding

 

Rotational molding technology enables Engiplas to offer a wider range of materials in a larger assortment of shapes and sizes.

In this pressure - free process, powder resin is charged into a hollow metal cavity. The cavity is rotated bi-axially while heated inside the oven in a fully thermal controlled process. Then, the metal cavity is cooled down and opened. The resulting product is a solid seamless plastic / Fluoroplastic member.

The most common applications are solid hollow parts, such as bottles, tanks, fittings and housings. The range of materials provided by rotational molding bridges technical and the commercial factors.

The production process is coordinated together with the customer.
