Rotational molding tooling - cast aluminum, Fabricated sheet metal, billet

Toolingfor Rotational Molding

What are the toolings choices?

Three tooling choices are available for rotational molding: Fabricated Sheet Metal, Cast Aluminum & Billet Aluminum. Determining which is the right choice answer a questions:

What is the size of the finished part?

How complex is the parts geometry?

What kind of surface finish is required?

Will you need more than one cavity?

Cast Rotational Molding Tooling

The most common type of tooling used in rotational molding that offers a wide range of surface finishes/textures. Cast Tooling is relatively inexpensive and can be made in 6 to 8 weeks depending on the complexity of the design. Learn more about Cast Tooling steps, textures, and other tooling options.

Billet Rotational Molding Tooling

Billet tooling is used for complex designs and when smooth surfaces are needed. Billet Tooling is usually the most expensive kind of rotational mold tooling and can be made in 6 to 8 weeks depending on the complexity of the design. The billet tooling starts with a 3d solid model of the tooling halves that are CNC machined, then the billet tool is ready to be framed and finished.

Fabricated Sheet Metal Tooling

Fabricated Sheet Metal Tooling is most commonly used on large parts that don't have complex design geometry. Sheet Metal Tooling is usually the least expensive kind of rotational mold tooling and can be made in 6 to 8 weeks depending on the complexity of the design. Fabricated Sheet Metal Tools are formed and welded. The welds are then ground and polished.
