When cost is a factor, rotational molding has the advantage over other types of processes. In comparison to injection and blow molding, rotational molding can easily produce large and small parts in a cost effective manner. Tooling is less expensive because there's no internal core to manufacture. Since there is no internal core, minor changes can be easily made to an existing mold. Because parts are formed with heat and rotation, rather than pressure, molds don't need to be engineered to withstand the high pressure of injection molding. Production costs for product conversions are reduced because lightweight plastics replace heavier, often more costly materials. Which makes rotational molding as cost effective for one-of-a-kind prototypes as it is for large production runs.
Utilizing SolidWorks 3D & Fusion 360 we can create detailed schematics for product prototypes and tooling.
5 Rotational Molding Machines allows Akro-Plastics the ability to mass produce many different products in almost any size.
