The Rotational Molding Process & Roto-Molded Cases from PSI

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

The rotational molding process is a three-stage, no-pressure, plastic molding process.

  • 1) Heating Stage: The mold slowly rotates in two planes as heat transfer causes the plastic charge to melt and conform to the interior of the mold.
  • 2) Cooling Stage: The mold moves to the cooling station where is cooled by either air, water spray, or a combination of the two.
  • 3) Load/Unload Stage: The product is removed from the mold. A new charge is inserted into the mold and the process begins again.

Rotational molding is a cost-effective process allowing manufacturers to create light-weight, seamless, stress-free products to meet precise requirements much more economically than injection molding or blow molding. The rotational molding process allows molders to produce a wide range of items, from toy dolls to agricultural equipment to custom protective cases.

The Injection Molding Process and Injection Molded Cases

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Packaging Strategies Inc. (PSI) specializes in the manufacturing systems integration packages and custom case solutions, including rotationally molded, metal, and injection molded cases. Each type of case is custom designed to meet your unique needs. But which type of case is best for you and your equipment?

Benefits of Injection Molded Cases

First of all, let’s talk about the injection molding process. It involves feeding plastic into a heated barrel, mixing it, and pouring it into a mold. The plastic eventually cools and hardens to the specified configurations.

The injection molding process is beneficial for several reasons, including:

  • Durability: The injection molding process produces a case with greater dimensional stability than its counterparts.
  • Molded In Features: Unlike other types of cases, features, such as hinges and latches, are actually molded into the case. This leads to little parts finishing after the injection molding process.
  • Production: Injection molding is a cost-effective and efficient production process. Resulting in increased production rates, repeatable high tolerances, minimal scrap losses, and low labor costs.

Having the right container for your equipment is just as important as the equipment itself. So don’t settle for stock shipping solutions. After all, we do not live in a “one size fits all” world. Specialized equipment and delicate instruments come in all shapes and size and need protective shipping cases built specifically for them. This is where PSI can help.
