Rotomoulding is particularly cost-effective for prototypes and shorter production runs
Rotomoulded plastics in industry
Industry uses rotational mouldings in a vast number of different ways. Plastics are found in the construction and petrochemical industries, power stations, industrial cleaning, telecomms and laboratories – to name but a few.
Plastic rotomoulded components used by industries obviously vary from the simple design to the complex, and rotomoulding is the process of choice for a range of reasons. It is particularly cost-effective for prototypes and shorter production runs.
Simple rotational mouldings
Most industries need plastic tanks and containers at some time – for holding a range of liquids and solids. As plastic containers and tanks are one of the shapes achievable through rotomoulding, tecni-form are called upon to produce chemical tanks, hydraulic tanks, oil tanks, water tanks, underground fuel tanks, and tanks for compressors or for laboratories. tecni-form make plastic containers for cables, cisterns, drums and bins. In addition, rotational moulding is used for pipes and ducting.
Complex plastic components
More complex moulds and post-moulding finishing and assembly allow a highly intricate final product to be achieved, including complete units made up of many plastic and metal parts. Examples are parts for commercial cleaning machinery and cars; industrial parts including filters, cab interiors and consoles for building machinery; various technical mouldings and scientific components that require exact measurements; and wiring devices, valves or fittings.
tecni-form offer an unrivalled range of textures and finishes; but for many industrial functions product colour and texture are not important, so more eco-friendly and inexpensive processes can be chosen.
