An extruded sheet is formed in a flat die running through a roll stand. The sheet is then reheated in a heat tunnel before entering a mold. The sheet is rotated vertically while vacuum and air pressure are applied to opposite sides of the sheet, creating a part within the web. Parts are then either trimmed from the web within the mold or transferred to a secondary trim station. Thermoforming is generally used for drink cups, trays and food packaging.
Rotational Molding is ideal for making large drums, fuel, aquaculture and double wall tanks. Pre-weighed plastic resin and colorant are dumped into a large mold that is externally heated and rotated on a large axis.
