Rotationally molded transit cases make traveling much easier.

Transit storage demands strong cases that will protect your goods through long periods of transportation and stand up to moving, shifting, and sometimes rough treatment. The strength and transportability of your case options are directly impacted by the production methods by which they are made. Rotational molding (or roto-molding) makes especially strong transit cases from high-density polyethylene (HPDE), a sturdy but lightweight material that resists corrosion and damage by solvents and acids. HPDE powder is distributed over the surface of a mold before heating and rotating the mold to allow for the liquid HPDE to perfectly fit the shape of your mold. This ease of production and applicability to a wide variety of shapes and sizes make rotationally molded cases perfect for your transit needs. Following are just a few of the benefits of using rotationally molded transit cases.

PSI, your Baltimore Roto-Molded Case Manufacturer

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Rotationally molded cases, better known as roto-molded cases are cost-effective shipping cases produced using a three-stage rotational molding process.

  1. Heating Stage: A plastic charge is placed into the case mold, which is slowly rotated in two planes as heat transfer causes the plastic charge to conform to the mold.
  2. Cooling Stage: Using either air, water spray, or a combination of the two, the mold is then cooled.
  3. Load / Unload Stage: Finally, the case is removed from the mold and a new plastic charge is inserted.

The rotational molding process is a three-stage, no-pressure, plastic molding process that allows for the production of light-weight, seamless, stress-free cases. Best of all, the rotational molding process is much more economical than injection molding or blow molding.

Additional benefits of roto-molded cases include:

  1. Incredible durability
  2. Superior strength
  3. Easily customizable
  4. The ability to integrate metal parts and graphics
  5. Unlimited design possibilities!

Aside from the shipping cases, rotational molding can also be used to produce a wide variety of items, from toy dolls to agricultural equipment.
