Practical Guide to Rotational Moulding Second Edition Book Excerpt:

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 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. It is completely revised and is extensively illustrated.This guide will be of interest both to students of polymer processing and those who work with rotational moulding equipment.

Basics of Troubleshooting in Plastics Processing Book Excerpt:

The Basics of Troubleshooting in Plastics Processing is a condensed practical guide that gives the reader a broad introduction to properties of thermoplastics plastics, additives, the major processes (extrusion, injection molding, rotational molding, blow molding, and thermoforming), as well as troubleshooting. The main goal is to provide the plastics processor with an improved understanding of the basics by explaining the science behind the technology. Machine details are minimized as the emphasis is on processing problems and the defects in an effort to focus on basic root causes to problems and how to solve them. The book’s framework is troubleshooting in plastics processing because of the importance it has to the eventual production of high quality end products. Each chapter contains both practical and detailed technical information. This basic guide provides state-of-the-art information on: Processing problems and defects during manufacturing Plastics materials, their properties and characterization The plastics processing techniques Plastics additives Troubleshooting of the 5 main plastics processes References for further reading

Rotational Moulding of Plastics Book Excerpt:

Rotational moulding has been available as a processing method for hollow plastic products for more than forty years, but for a long time it was regarded as a slow method limited to only a few plastics. Within the last ten to fifteen years there has been a dramatic change. Engineers and designers recognise the scope that rotational moulding offers for the production of relatively inexpensive, complex shapes with low levels of moulded-in stress. Materials suppliers are continually developing new grades of plastics as well as a wider selection of materials suited to the process. In addition, machinery suppliers are producing more sophisticated moulding equipment so that the moulder now has control over the process that was previously thought impossible. For its second edition, this book has been updated and expanded by the authors, who are leaders in their specialties within the field of rotational moulding. It continues to provide an introduction to the subject, as well as giving comprehensive coverage of the state-of-the-art. Two new chapters have been added. These cover the important areas of pin-hole removal from rotomoulded products and the rotational moulding of liquid polymers. In both cases the new material is the result of extensive research, and the results will be of considerable practical interest to moulders. The book will surely be welcomed again by moulders, materials and equipment suppliers, engineers and designers, and by lecturers looking for up-to-date information to include in their courses.
