Issue 4 Rototrends

     The evolution that has distinguished rotational moulding in recent decades is intimately related to the development of awareness of rotomoulding in the design world.In other words, as the potential of rotomoulding becomes “common knowledge” amongst designers and producers the sophistication of their projects using our technology for industrial applications grows.
RotoTrends explores the different potentials of rotational moulding showing case-histories where the roto technology is able to open new markets, developing innovative products and working successfully in new niches.
The projects developed in partnership with international design institutes, and the selected industrial products produced a faithful portrait of an industry constantly hungry for new ideas, eager to experiment with new shapes and new materials, sensitive to the international richness of globalization.
Rotomoulding is strategically placed as one of the key technologies for rethinking the industry ccording to today’s needs for technology.

In warm appreciation of our association during the past year, we wish you a Merry Christmas and every success in 2021.

Happy Holiday!

The British Plastic Federation has launched the online rotational moulding seminar for 2020. This event is entitled ‘Rotational Moulding: New Technology and Future Trends’ and will take place on 26 November. 
The UK rotational moulding industry will face increasing challenges over the next few years. The impact of the ongoing pandemic and Brexit is already changing the industry... For more details please click on the link below.


webinarOn Thursday 16 July the BPF is hosting a free webinar that is going to explore ‘Design for Recyclability & Efficiency in Rotational Moulding’. The webinar will be hosted by David Bray from Leafield Environmental and will take place at 12.00 – 12.45 UK time (This is GMT + 1)

The webinar will explore:
.           The advantages of designing for recyclability
.            Mould in inserts and effective alternatives
.            Designing for sustainability and the resultant efficiencies in finishing & assembly
.            Examples of successful products designed with recyclability in mind.

Rotational moulding is an extremely important industrial process used in the manufacture of large and small, hollow plastic products. QUB has been at the forefront of major technological advances in the process for more than 30 years. Innovations in process monitoring (Rotolog™), process simulation (Rotosim™) systems and process optimisation (Rotocooler™) have had significant impacts on the process globally. One of the latest innovations currently on trial at QUB is the use of internal mould water spray cooling device (Rotocooler™). The Rotocooler device has the potential to significantly reduce manufacturing times and energy waste by accelerating the cooling phase of the process through the innovative use of water mist. This represents a fundamental step change in the capabilities of the rotational moulding process significantly reducing manufacturing cycletimes and energy usage and it is the catalyst for this project.  The vision is to create an entirely autonomous rotational moulding process cooling system where the cooling phase (50-70%) is directed and controlled through an intelligent system that uses a combination of signals from in-process sensors and predictions from simulation. The core research work will be the integration of the data derived from real-time process measurement and simulation, and it is fully interdisciplinary as it demands the expertise of mechanical engineers in rotational moulding, simulation and process monitoring, and electrical engineers in signals processing, data analytics and process control.

The project will require a dynamic individual, with strong leadership potential and organisational skills to fully exploit this opportunity by drawing together the work of an existing team of interdisciplinary researchers with the international industrial consortium that is developing the advanced moulding system.
