Plastic Rotational Moulding Service
If you can dream it, we can mould it.
At the Quill Productions HQ in Dorset we have been manufacturing our own products using our Rotational Moulding Machine for over 15 years.
As well as designing and producing our own unique product range, we are also able to mould any custom order. Using high density and durable plastic, we are able to make a huge range of products from kayaks and canoes to portable toilets and animal houses.
The process begins with a client product meeting where we will listen to your idea and discuss potential options, sizes and delivery timescales. Once you are happy, we will then proceed to make test products for you to inspect and approve.
The next stage involves creating and selecting the required mould and fixing it in place. A carefully measured amount of plastic powder is poured slowly into each rotary mould. As the mould warms, the powder melts and turns to liquid which sticks to the sides of the mould.
By continuously rotating on different axes, the liquid plastic is spread evenly, ensuring a uniform thickness throughout the product. The mould is cooled slowly as it continues to rotate. Once the product is cold, it shrinks slightly away from the metal mould, which can be opened to reveal the finished item.
Whilst the process of rotational moulding is quite labour intensive, it produces quality products with little waste. We reuse any excess plastic powder to keep the whole process as low-waste as possible. What's more, all of our products are made from the highest quality raw materials to ensure that they last.
A wide range of products can be made using the rotational moulding method, both for the home and for specialist engineering or industrial products.
