Shape your ideas
We create a new product design that fulfils all your requirements. We do so by collaborating with you and making full use of our rotomoulding knowledge. The project typically begins with a consultation to understand your specific needs and goals. We will then make a custom design that leverages the unique properties and capabilities of the rotomoulding process. This includes considering factors such as material options, product geometry, and manufacturing possibilities.
Rotomoulding enjoys almost unlimited design freedom. It lends itself ideally to double-curved surfaces. Products are coloured through and through. Many surface textures can be used: from high-gloss smooth, matt and textured, to wood-grain, stone-effect and ribbed. Logos, inscriptions and pictograms can be moulded directly with the product.
We will work closely with you to ensure that the design meets your specific requirements. Throughout the project, we will keep you informed and involved, ensuring that the final product meets your expectations and needs.
Design beyond the obvious
Rotomoulding gives unprecedented freedom when developing a new product. The process is pressure-free, allowing to build up the mould as a thin outer shell. The outer shell can consist of several mould parts deforming in different directions. The rotomoulding process makes it easy to create undercuts in the same part without having to make the product from multiple parts.
It is possible to directly co-mould inner and outer threads in a product. This allows a tight connection to a hose, or a filling opening that can be closed with a screw-lid. Metal inserts can be placed in the mould, which consequently melt completely into the product. This way, the product can be easily attached to a frame later, or parts can be mounted on the product.
The rotomoulding process results in hollow products, allowing integration of several functions into the products. For example, a double-walled funnel can be made where the hollow part can be a liquid tank. Or the hollow wall of rotomoulded products can be filled with a foam to bring high rigidity, thermal insulation, or floating properties.
Product development tools
To create the best possible design, we use several tools during the design phase of the project. 3D CAD allows us to create a digital model of the design, which can be easily modified and improved. With 3D printing we can produce a physical prototype of the design or specific details of it, which can be tested and evaluated for functionality and design issues.
FEA (Finite Element Analysis) can be used to predict how the new product reacts to real-world forces, temperature and vibration, allowing us to identify and address any potential weaknesses in the design before a mould is made. With this combination of tools we can create a design that is optimized for performance, cost, and manufacturability. It enables us to identify and resolve any issues early in the design process, resulting in a more efficient and cost-effective outcome for you.
