    rotational molding

      Yeah, It looks like the jig you need to make chocolate santas and easter bunnies.

      Yeah. The disks are rotating about the hub at a slower rate than they’re going around the shaft. This would be to ensure that the liquid material (likely a plastic or resin of some sort) inside the molds forms as even a coat as possible as it solidifies.

      You can even see hoses going from the central hub to several of the molds. (I’m not 100% sure whether they’re going to all of them or not — small image, lighting) These would likely be used for injection of material into the molds.

      Here’s a youtube channel with videos of a machine very similar to this one being used for rotomolding large plastic parts:

    High-G training centrifuge for hamsters.

    Rotational casting or rotocasting machine. I cannot say if it’s a rotational molding machine as those require heating of the material as far as I know. But it doesn’t look like this one has any heating going on at all, a few have cables running but not all. Liquid resin is sloshed around until it cures.

  4. My brother recommended I might like this website.
    He was entirely right. This submit truly made my day.
    You can not believe simply how a lot time I had spent for this info!
    Thank you!

    Rotational casting machine :D Saw one in action before.

    There is a lot of sphere it making. They must be try to get the seam off the outlook and use rotational casting instead of injection moulding.

    Yes, rotational molding will leave no seams in the part so no leaks. Great for custom reservoirs for tight spaces in your custom equipment.
