ROTATIONAL MOLDING PROCESS

logomakr_1vmr12  STAGE 1 - LOAD/UNLOAD -

A pre-measured 35 mesh powdered resin, colored or natural, is loaded into an open cast aluminum or stainless steel mold. The two halves of the mold are closed and clamped together. Several molds can be mounted together on a framework or a spider grid on an arm.

logomakr_0hlv6l  STAGE 3 - COOLING CHAMBERS-

The arm with molds is indexed to cooling chambers where air or water, or both, cool the molds, and finished part inside the mold, to a desired temperature, over a desired amount of time. The molds continue to rotate slowly about two axes.

logomakr_7mojwc  STAGE 2 - OVEN -

The arm with molds is indexed into a heated oven where the molds rotate slowly about two axes after the oven door is closed. The powdered resin cascades to the heated, inner walls of the molds, melts and forms layers, to the desired wall thickness, of the parts being molded.

logomakr_1vmr12 STAGE 4 - LOAD/UNLOAD-

The molds are opened on the load/unload platform and the finished,molded parts are removed. The finished part is transferred to a finishing area where desired secondary operations, such as routed openings, band saw cuts, parting line finishing and other operations, are performed.
