Summary:
Rotational moulding (also called rotomoulding or rotocasting), is a low pressure, high temperature manufacturing process that offers a very competitive alternative to blow moulding, thermoforming and injection moulding for the manufacture of hollow plastic parts. It offers designers the chance to produce relatively stress-free articles, with uniform wall thickness and potentially complex shapes. This second edition  Read more...

It offers designers the chance to produce relatively stress-free articles, with uniform wall thickness and potentially complex shapes. This second edition of the very popular Practical Guide to Rotational Moulding describes the basic aspects of the process and the latest state-of-the-art developments in the industry.
