FIXED ARMS

foto impaginata fixed armsThe rhythm of rotational moulding.

The most common rotational moulding machine: high production capacity, robust construction, requires little maintenance and is simple to operate.

Available with 3 or 4 mould carrying arms, which move together in the various working phases.

This is the ideal machine for different parts with similar working cycle.

It is possible to change the moulding temperature and the rotation speed (both axes) on each arm.

Working Cycle

Available with up to 6 stations for maximum flexibility.

Six stations configuration (3 waiting stations and 3 working stations):

  • Cooking and moulding the part;
  • Intermediate phase waiting for cooling;
  • Mould cooling;
  • Material loading into the moulds;
  • Three intermediate waiting stations.

Depending on the customer requirements the working stations can be arranged in a different way.

SHUTTLE

foto impaginata shuttle

Possible configuration with 1 or 2 carriages, with central oven and two stations on each side of the oven for cooling/loading/unloading.

The same arm can do two consecutive cycles, whilst the other is either waiting or is being serviced, or not operational due to tests or for arm change to straight or offset.

Computerised and automatic operation, independent of time and temperature settings for each arm, and therefore for each mould or combination of moulds.

Optimal choice for the production of very large parts, of different materials, with various thicknesses and with different quality levels .

SRM Series

Working Cycle
Configuration upto 3 stations for maximum operational flexibility:

  • Cooking and forming of the part in the central oven;
  • Side stations for cooling, loading or unloading;
  • Highly efficient thermal insulation;
  • Electronically controlled burner for minimum consumption with different fuels;
  • Heating via high velocity air circulation in closed circuit;
  • Adjustable deflectors to optimize the moulds heating air flow;
  • Optimized heating distribution via fixed panels mounted on the carriages;
  • Steel cooling covers with high capacity fans (as option);
  • Optimal cooling possibilities with air or water mist;
  • High load carriages, movable on rails;
  • Primary and secondary rotation movements through gear wheels and gearmotors controlled by frequency inverters;
  • Straight/offset arms with very high loading capacity contained in a one-piece group, easily replaceable and held on both sides of the carriages;
  • Operator interface with touch screen for complete control of the operational cycle in the language of the client;
  • Real time measurement and adjustment of the oven temperature;
  • Remote operator console for easy loading and unloading operations.

3 SIDED SHUTTLE

foto impaginata 3-s shuttleThe Rotomachinery Group, leaders in the field of rotational molding equipment, is extremely pleased to announce that it has launched the very first 3-sided shuttle rotomolding machine.

Due to the strong demand for machines with more flexibility, the company has designed a shuttle with 3 carts.

It is one of the largest machines of this type: a spherical diameter of 6500 mm. (256 inches).

Parts that require long cycles will benefit from this new offering. It will provide the same features as our regular shuttle line (SRM Series): straight or offset arm, Automatic Process Management for closed-loop process control based on mould temperature, arm indexation for total control of angles of each mould, robust design with arms supported at both ends to handle the heaviest loads, etc.

The 3-sided shuttle machine fulfills a strong demand of many rotomolders. For example, no need to interrupt regular production when changing moulds on an arm or running a test on a brand new mould. With 3 arms, one can easily be reserved for such operations.

Moreover, running a large part with very long cooling cycle compared to other moulds on the machine is no longer a nuisance.

The third arm can be used for such cases. But the most important benefit of the shuttle concept, especially with 3 arms, is the ability to perform different production sequences. Parts of different shape, size and wall thickness will never have to wait for an arm that requires more time for cooking or cooling or load/ unload.

The new exciting 3-sided shuttle machine will be offered in numerous sizes: spherical diameters from 2000 mm. (84”) all the way to 7500 mm. (295”). Another attractive feature is being able to order the 3-sided shuttle with 2 arms and add the 3rd arm at a later date if needed, or use one of the unique configurations (L-shaped) to fit it in a corner of your plant. Try it, you will be impressed!

foto-impaginata-lab-machine

The Lab machine model LRM 1000-1C is a state-of-the-art rotational moulding, designed for the rotational moulder looking for a small machine to perform tests and product development. It is also used to validate cycle times before going into production. The LRM 1000-1C’s integrated and compact design minimizes the use of floor space and offers the most ergonomic cooling and mould servicing stations of the industry.

The standard machine has two stations: one oven and one cooling/load-unload station. The cooling station, enclosed under a retractable dome, has adjustable air movement with variable frequency drives for efficient cooling and an extraction fan to send the hot and humid air outside the building. This model is designed with an advanced heat chamber engineered to maximize efficiency of hot air distribution, which optimizes the heat transfer to the mould. We build the machine with components from reputable suppliers recognized and accessible throughout the world.
