Designing machines for rotational molding of plastics that have a low environmental impact during operation is our first goal, because it requires us to rethink traditional construction standards and change the point of view in the design phase.
The methodology we adopt is simple: we observe all the phases of the process as a whole and analyze them in individual details, to optimize each component of the process. We could define it as “design in small steps”, along a wide-ranging path.
The same approach is pursued with the aim of reducing energy consumption for the operation of the plants. Thanks to the interventions on the burners, the different ventilation system, the mechanical/electronic and software development, we are able to install motors for the inverters of lower power and dimensions and therefore to create machines with a lower energy requirement.
The goal is to bring the burden of weight to the mechanics and not to unload it on the electronics. With the same technical characteristics, this allows to halve the electrical consumption of the machines. The operating data of the fully operational systems document that a modern Rotoplastic machine, with the same characteristics, consumes about 11% less gas than a traditional, insulated system built in the early 2000s.
A result made possible only thanks to the optimization of all aspects that make up the system, first of all, a perfect synergy between mechanical design, development of management software and electronic equipment.
