Rotomolding is known for providing design flexibility, low-cost tooling, and stress-free parts. Its disadvantages, however, include higher part cost, fewer material choices compared to other processes, and slower production.

Putting the Right Spin on Rotational-Molding Designs
May 18, 2000Jean M. Hoffman New developments let rotational molding compete with injection or blow molding.
John Fawcett
Fawcett Design Inc.Kent, Ohiowww.fawcett.comComputer-generated color renderings help rotational molders finalize designs. The use of 3D models boosts productivity and helps create drawing views and cross sections thatsimplify the job of building patterns.
 
A premeasured amount of powdered or liquid plastic is placed in mold half. The mold isclosed, transferred to the heating oven, and then on to the cooling station. During theentire heating and cooling process, the molds simultaneously rotate around two right-angle axes.Typical carousel rotational molding machine with three arms that rotate betweenloading/unloading stations, heating ovens, and cooling chambers.
 
Kiss-offs increase part stiffness. They are used individually or in a series or pattern andwill outperform ribs in many cases. The almost kiss-off gives nearly the same structuralstrength without adding a blemish on the outside wall.Rotationally molded newspaper boxes manufactured by Steel City, Youngstown, Ohio,unlike their metal counterparts retain their good looks (no chipped paint or scratches),
