- Product design – you need to know what you are making, the grade of plastic material required and design techniques necessary to achieve a successful product.
- Create the mould – also knowing as tooling, moulds typically constructed from aluminium or steel that transmit heat.
- Setup mould and machine – so the mould is heated correctly and fills out the mould to the right thickness at different points during the rotational cycle. The mould is also treated to ensure the raw plastic material sticks and comes away from the mould once cooled.
Before the rotomoulding process begins there are several preparation steps.
