Persico SpA in Nembro, Italy, has introduced a new rotational molding machine, the Leonardo, that does not require an operator.
The single-station machine has all heating, cooling, resin loading and part removal in a single location.
Instead of a separate oven, the machine applies heat directly to the mold using a patent-pending system. Cooling also is closely confined to the mold surface.
The opening and closing of the molds — a labor-intensive process in traditional rotomolding — is done by pneumatic cylinders.
