Hollow components with rotational moulding
Rotational moulding is especially suitable for making pipes and ducts, including ones of irregular shape. The process of rotomoulding produces hollow plastic shapes with controlled wall thickness and without seams or inherent stresses. These hollow shapes can subsequently be machined to produce holes, slots and cutouts – which describes the characteristics of complex pipes and ducts.
It is possible to make many shapes of pipes and ducts with other processes but in numbers below (typically) 10,000 rotational moulding is likely to be the most cost-effective answer. It is ideal for prototyping too; and results are accurate and look good.
tecni-form offer something extra. They can build assemblies of multiple plastic and metal parts, shipping a finished component to you for installation. An example is a complicated air conditioning assembly used by a leading luxury car maker: it is a mass of junctions, ducts and galleries all built up accurately on a jig.
Further examples are sanitary equipment, offshore pipeline parts and pipework for food processing. Resistance to chemicals and ease of cleaning are often important, areas where rotational moulding excels. Parts can be designed with metal inserts like mountings, clips and threads permanently moulded in. A useful feature is their ability to add logos and written instructions and warnings, or diagrams, into the surface of a moulding.
