Make the Switch to Plastic

AR MOULDING have a long and successful track record of helping companies switch over from their existing manufacturing method to rotomoulding 

Before After

Increasingly more businesses are crossing over to plastic

Rotational and compression moulding are exceptionally flexible and cost-effective methods of creating thermoplastic products and components. Rotomouding and compression moulding have many advantages over traditional forms of manufacturing such as timber, metal, concrete and fibreglass leading to their increased adoption. Things such as rust proof, waterproof, UV stable to name just a few.

In addition, advances in materials and manufacturing methods also mean that rotomouding and compression moulding are also impacting on other plastic manufacturing methods such as blow moulding, injection moulding and thermoforming. Some of those benefits include; reduced tooling and mould costs, low production run requirements

Agriculture & Aquaculture

Equipment for the agricultural sector needs to be tough and cost effective. Products are usually in constant use and receive fairly tough treatment both from the weather, chemicals and mechanical impact. 
 
Rotational Moulding is therefore perfect for agricultural products. Wherever you look in the agricultural sector you can see parts and full products that were the domain of other traditional manufacturing techniques including metal, fibreglass and concrete are being replaced by rotomoulding
 
Its versatility means that it can be used to manufacture just about anything from small troughs, bin and livestock feeders, right through to large mixing tanks, and even full grain silos. Its unique manufacturing method lends it to modular products allowing for great savings during manufacturing and therefore of end products.

Marine &
Watercraft

The marine environment is extremely harsh. The combination of salt water, wind, and heavy pounding by the water make very challenging conditions for any equipment used. 

 Metal, wood, and fibreglass have long been used for maritime product construction and each material has pros and cons. These include the initial cost with only the highest grade being up to the job and even then wood needs constant treating, metal rusts even marine grade stainless steel, and fibreglass can suffer from moisture increase and brittleness due to sun exposure.

 Rotomoulding avoids the downsides of traditional materials and manufacturing techniques whilst also adding in some additional benefits unique to its characteristics.

Furniture

Plastic furniture was all the rage in the 60’s and 70’s when plastic was a relatively new and exciting material.  Designers of that era were let loose with their imagination and pushed the limitations of the manufacturing options of the time.
 
Now, once again, with advances in polymer technology and new production techniques, designers are once again returning to explore the new possibilities to create high quality and desirable modern techno-plastic furniture.
 
In particular, major European and New York designers are leading the way, creating highly aesthetic, functional and beautifully sculptured forms often inspired by nature.

Industries

Renewable Energy

With the worldwide drive to more sustainable forms of energy production, producers and large energy consumers are looking for more creative solutions to satisfy demand.

One such solution is floating photovoltaics (FPV) arrays. Solar panels are placed on a structure made of interlinked rotomoulded pontoons keeping them well above the water’s surface. The solar array systems are designed to take advantage of unused calm bodies of water such as ponds, lakes and reservoirs.

One of the greatest advantages of FPV, apart from its low impact on the environment, is the high level of solar performance from the panels due to their location in a wide open high reflection area affected by shade caused by tall buildings, objects or trees.

Industries

Civil & Industrial

General building, road construction and general factory industries comprise a huge market with a wide range of machinery and almost innumerable amounts of engineered products. 
 
Rotomoulding is finding its way into many of these products, parts, and equipment solutions as the civil and industrial sector discover its advantages over traditional choices.
 
Rotomoulding offers many advantages over other manufacturing methods that make it ideal for industrial needs. It allows for a great deal of design freedom and its ability to allow for low run manufacturing requirements means parts and specialized components can be developed very quickly and affordably

Industries

Outdoor &
Recreation

The global outdoor and recreation has boomed over the last couple of decades. No generation before has had the disposable income and time, plus the mobility to enjoy it. This has led to a massive growth in recreational activities,outdoor living and the subsequent need for products and equipment to cater to it.
 
The range of product is almost unlimited from the most simple of toys though large modular playground systems for the kids and toys for the big kida such are loungers, kayaks and even full size boats
 
Every year an increasing amount of these products becomes made of rotomoulding as producers discover the capabilities of the process.

Industries

Food & Drink

It would be hard not to notice the dominance of plastics in the modern food and drink handling environment. 

The growth of international brands, fast food outlets, and just in time logistic requirements for supermarkets and food manufacturers has spurred the growth of food distribution packaging as they get increasingly shipped around the country and the world.

 
Plastics have taken over from paper, cardboard, and wood in many cases. Rotomoulding has a number of roles to play in this market, in particular by providing durability, consistency, reusability, and recyclability.

Industries

Health &
Medical

Surprising to some people, perhaps more used to seeing rotomoulded products in rugged environments, the medical sector is an industry that has seen increased adoption of the rotomoulding process for the production of many devices and equipment. 
 
Understandably any products used in the highly sensitive areas of patient care or the laboratory environment need to comply with stringent requirements to ensure any contamination risk is minimised.
 
Rotomoulding has the advantages of being a seamless manufacturing process, therefore, eliminating joints and seams thereby reducing the areas that dangerous germs and bacteria can form.

Industries

Automotive

Although the mass market automotive industry has increasingly adopted the rotomoulding process for many parts such as bumpers, mud flaps, etc they still mainly rely on metal pressing and injection molded parts due to the cost efficiencies of mass production.
 
The recreational vehicle market, that includes things like caravans, campervans, Segways, and off-road fun vehicles, however, has really embraced the advantages of rotomoulding. 
 
Apart from the ability to make complex shapes easily and cheaply one of the main advantages for rotomoulding in this market is the ability to have small production runs to cater to the more customised nature of these markets.
