How to Design the Best Product for RotoMoulding

By in News

It isn’t always an easy task when it comes to designing a brand new product for rotomoulding, however, when you follow the right process it becomes much more straightforward. At Global Rotomoulding, we have over 30 years of experience in moulding and manufacturing rotomoulded products, so it’s safe to say that we know a thing or two about what does and doesn’t work. When you have the right manufacturing team and you follow these crucial steps, you’re guaranteed to achieve your desired results:

Consider your End Goal

The very first step to designing a great product is considering your ‘why’- why are you creating this product? What problems will it solve? Often our customers come to us because they want to solve a problem with existing products on the market or the existing product they’re using. The good news is that rotomoulding can solve a lot of problems because the plastic used is stronger as well as lighter than metal and is cheaper to manufacture.

Improve Efficiency

The new product that you are designing and manufacturing should always boost efficiency for your customers in one way or another. When it comes to your customers and their business, time is money, so your product should always be designed with the aim of saving your customers time and helping them to do their job more efficiently.

Create a CAD Prototype and seek industry expert advice.

When you’ve created a clear and effective design that will solve the problems you’ve outlined. You need to work through your design process this may include producing scale 3d printed products. We recommend you partner with our Industrial designer who is the leading designer for rotomolded products in Australia. This is the most effective way of ensuring that your product can be manufactured. The creation of moulds is expensive, it is best to ensure your design is well thought through for the intended application, as well as the product can be manufactured.

Collaborate With the Right Team

When designing a product for rotomoulding, it’s crucial that you have the best expertise, facilities and level of support possible. The manufacturing team that you opt to partner with is the factor that has the biggest potential to make or break your entire design.
