Smaller plastic parts for more complicated medical devices can be rotationally moulded, including surgical equipment, disabled and therapeutic aids and containers for dialysis machines
Creating plastic products for the healthcare and medical industries
Rotational moulding has a great deal to offer the medical and healthcare industries. There are many types of medical equipment which require hollow plastic components, and rotational moulding is a safe and reliable method for producing these parts.
Hollow plastic healthcare products such as squeeze bulbs for medical equipment, massage balls, spas and foot baths can all be made using the rotational moulding process.
Large and small rotomoulded plastic medical components
Smaller plastic parts for more complicated medical devices can be rotationally moulded, including surgical equipment, disabled and therapeutic aids, and containers for dialysis machines.
Rotational moulding is a great way of testing new ideas and designs for medical products, as it is a cost-effective method of producing small numbers of items. For example, RM has been used in a pilot project to build a plastic housing which converts an ordinary wheelchair into an electronically-controlled wheelchair.
Rotational moulding can be used to create anatomical reproductions, protective equipment for athletes, and cabinets for emergency medical equipment.
The possibilities are as infinite as the imagination. Have a look at their section describing the full rotational moulding process: it may give you some ideas for your area of interest.
