Cast Rotational Molding Tooling

Pouring aluminum into a sand cavity creates the tooling. Then the mold is polished and/or textured to your specification. This process takes a meticulous eye for detail. The mold cavities are then fit together. A steel frame is constructed and mounted to the casting.

After the framing and fitting of the mold cavities are completed, the new tool is sent to our Rotational Molding Department to program cycle times with Rotolog technology.

Benefits of Cast Tooling

Cast Aluminum uniform walls of 5/16"
Mounting flanges 1/2" thick
3/16" thick square tube with mitered corners
All these items lead to a quality tool.

Tooling Options

Cast Tooling Process

Pattern making

Pattern making-by hand or cnc

Patterns mirror your design for approval in advance of casting the tool. A pattern is produced out of milled high-density wood; composite boards, epoxy resin, or other materials. Sand blasting the pattern can add texture to the pattern.

Sand Cast

Sand casting

The pattern is used to make sand casting for your tool. Every step in the casting process is closely monitored for the highest level of quality.

Casting

pouring aluminum

A reliable mold begins with consistent wall thickness and porosity free casting.

  • Hinges
  • Swings
  • Guide Pins
  • Clamps and j-hooks
  • Receivers, Bolts and Stops

Finishing

Mold finishing

Meticulous eye for detail comes into play when applying the polishing or blasting texture needed to create the precise surfaces. During the finishing stages of your project, parting lines are inspected and made so mismatch and flashing are eliminated, cutting down on your post rotomold processes.

Framing

Steel framing

How a mold frame is designed affects how fast a part can be de-molded. Our skilled engineers and machinists think in terms of Lean for optimum efficiency.
