Rotational Molding Inserts

An insert is a feature that allows other components to be fastened to your rotational molded part. The designed insert geometry provides a robust connection point.
A wide variety of stock inserts offered or custom designed inserts to fulfill your project needs. The in-house Design & EngineeringDepartment will help you determine which inserts will work best for your rotational molded part.

How inserts work in rotational molded parts

Inserts are loaded into the tool and held in place mechanically with a fastener. During the molding process resin totally encapsulates the insert. The fastener is then removed from the tooling leaving the encapsulated insert within the finished plastic part.
Rotationally molded inserts are simple features to incorporate into part designs. Male or female threaded inserts provide strong and reliable anchoring points for multi-parts assemblies.

Convert to Rotational Molding

We have helped customers improve throughput, save money and improve aesthetics by converting products made from fiberglass, metals and other materials to a rotationally molded plastic part. Rotational molding can provide shorter production lead times and has lower mold costs than other plastic molding methods. Our in-house Design & Engineering department utilizes the design flexibility of rotational molding to duplicate your current product or craft a completely new look. The result for you will be durable, stress-free parts at a lower production cost.

Successful conversion story

The snow cone machine pictured above is a great example of"conversion" to a rotational molded product. The original concept was improved by adding wheels so the product could be "pulled" making it easier to move. With the use of rotational molding, the final product was more aesthetically pleasing and functional. Also reducing to labor assembly time.

In mold process

Multi layers of material can be added using drop boxes during the oven cycle. An outer skin forms in the mold and a drop box holds the second layer's material that will be released after the outer skin forms. The purpose of the inner layer(s) is to provide maximum structural instigate, provide additional insulation, add buoyancy, and dramatically decrease fuel permeation.

Post mold process

Post mold foaming is a two-part system (AB) process that is injected into the rotational molded part. The Post Mold Foaming method is either a open or closed cell material. The primiary purpose of the Post mold foam process is to provide maximum thermal insulation for parts that need to be completly filled. Addtionally the post mold foam can increase structural integrity and buoyancy.
