In rotational molding the design phase influences the functional necessities, material as well as processing restrictions and manufacturing costs. Moreover the specifics of part’s design distinguishes whether it will become a failure or a success. You will always need to make use of the best thickness with respect to the applications / requirements.
Why thickness of wall matters:
Wall thickness is important due to many reasons. For instance, from roto-moulder perspective, the wall thickness will determine the quantity of material used in it. It will have a strong impact on cycle times as well as on part expenses.
The wall thickness explains the power of parts, however, the thickness is not always the sign of strong plastic portions. Being a rotomoulding organization, having more then 40 years of experience, we can offer your team excellent suggestions regarding the designs of walls. These walls will be equally strong but consume less material. In order to know more in detail about ribs and other methodologies, please let us know.
Advantages of rotomolding and thickness of the wall:
This function of rotomolding offers a lot of advantage when it comes to the thickness of the wall. More specifically, it allows deciding the thickness of the wall once the sample is ready. You can even change the thickness of the wall after testing it on the site. This possibility is not available for other manufacturing methodologies.
With respect to the size, the related parts can bear thinner walls as compared to related parts which are manufactured by the use of other techniques. In contrast, to blow molding, the process which is inclined to manufacture thin corners, rotomolding is apt to manufacture more thick walls for the outside areas. In big portions, this thickness is known to beneficial for providing strength to the wall.
