About Rotational Moulding


Rotational moulding technology enables polymer product manufacturers, such as Tanks UK, to create light-weight, seamless, stress-free parts of virtually any size in the most complex shapes.

Rotationally moulded products represent a wide range of materials, performance characteristics, colours, surface textures and finishes. The products can be custom-designed to meet precise market requirements more economically than by conventional injection or blow moulding.

At Tanks UK, we specialise in manufacturing conical based biofuel tanks. Our competitive pricing is due to the fact that our tooling costs are relatively low when compared to other moulding processes. This is because rotational moulding is a low pressure process, meaning high strength mould tools are not needed.

Our Moulding Process

Our rotational moulding is a three-stage, no-pressure, plastic moulding process.

During the heating stage, the mould slowly rotates in two planes (bi-axial rotation). Heat transfer causes the plastic charge inside the mould to melt and uniformly coat the interior of the mould.

During the second stage, the mould moves to the cooling station where it is cooled by air and/or water spray.

In the final load/unload stage, the part is removed from the mould and a new charge of material is loaded into the mould.

Our Process

1. Consultation

Our Technical consultancy for rotational moulding service covers the material choice, thickness, stiffness, flexibility and longevity of the finished article and offer advice on how best to achieve the desired output.

2. Design

Our Design consultancy for rotational moulding service covers the appropriateness, shape, size, functionality and application of the finished article.

3. Tooling

Typically utilising our in-house Steel Fabrication Workshop, we then create the required custom manufactured tooling which will act as the mould during the rotational moulding process.

4. Manufacturing

We then start the plastic rotational moulding process to form the typical body of the product. Which is then taken to finishing, where any specific features or accessories are then incorporated to produce a quality finished article.

5. Testing

Whether it’s an on-going production or a single run, our Finishing and Quality team review every single product that enters and leaves our facilities to ensure that they’re manufactured to the highest of standards.

6. Delivery

Whether delivering to you or your customers directly, we strive to ensure that the product reaches you as expected, or better.
