Additional info

The LRM Laboratory Series is a formidable tool for training researchers and for the development of new rotomolded materials or the effective use of recycled material and scale verification of mechanical and chemical properties of rotomolded products.

It is set up with an oven and a multipurpose cooling and loading/unloading station, protected by an enclosed structure with windows for visual analysis. Depending on requirements, it is supplied with straight or offset mold-holding arm with one or more air ways.  

It is equipped with all the tools to control the rotational molding process and monitor production and temperature data in real time. Available with gas or electric power for installation in university departments or research centers. It can also be used as a normal production machine for molding small technical items or pre-series.  

 

Optional provided

Each rotational molding machine can be equipped with optional features for better process control, energy savings, and equipment to increase productivity.

Process control

Zero position search

Incremental management of secondary rotation allows the steps of loading/unloading and insert introduction/removal operations to be programmed.

Process control

Industry 4.0

The machine is connected to company management software and receives data from production orders to be fulfilled and applies stored molding recipes. It interfaces with the local network to communicate data from each cycle aggregated by period, arm, item or material for logistics and quality business processes. Visualization of operating conditions can be made available on PC, tablet and cell phone. 

Process control

Teleassistance

A communication device is installed on the machine that allows us to remotely intervene for assistance, configurations, and software updates.

Process control

Automatic cycle management

Thanks to the constant detection of temperatures inside the mold, the molding cycle is optimized with automatic switching from one work station to the next. Each cycle will be optimized for different molding conditions (hot/cold oven--summer/winter--type and quantity change), and tuning of the optimal cycle for new molds will be immediate. 

Process control

Temperature detection

Inside the mold can be achieved with removable systems fully integrated into the process logic that transmit real time information to the supervisory and control system.

Energy saving

Ecomode

Ecomode is an operator-activated oven operating function that provides significant savings in energy consumption. Under certain predefined conditions (empty oven or temperature below a set point, 200° for example) the burner stops and energy consumption is reset to zero. In ECOMODE when the burner is off, the flue gas extractor works at idle, reducing the mass of expelled hot air and the inflow of clean cold air.
