Rotomolded is another term for the manufacturing process known as rotational molding. It is a method that has long been used to form a variety of plastic objects and products. An example being TranPak’s rotomolded plastic bins. Other examples are plastic toys, dolls, planters, chairs, slides, canoes, storage tanks, bins, the list goes on and on.
Plastic powder is placed into a heated hollow mold and continuously rotated so it melts and disperses evenly around the inside edges of the mold. The rotation continues during both the heating and cooling phases. After cooling, the object shrinks and comes away from the mold, allowing for easy removal.
TranPak’s MegaBin is an excellent example of a rotomolded product and it is suitable for a broad range of uses from food processing to scrap metal!
Also part of TranPak’s line of rotomolded products is the Cyclone Plastic Hopper Bin, which is the largest rotationally molded hopper bin in the market today!
