Rock & Roll HRM Machines

Rotomachinery Group Machines Rock n Roll 12

Machine for molding large items

Cutting-edge machine for rotational molding of very large items: boats, swimming pools, canoes, silos, etc. 

Rock & Roll machines designed with the tilting oven for rotational molding located on a tower and one or two carts that transport the mold holder arms horizontally from the versatile cooling and loading/unloading station to the point where they are hooked for ascent to the oven.

Features

– Configuration from 1 to 2 arms completely independent of each other;

– Maximum moldable cylinder from mm. 5,300 x mm. 2,500 to mm. 7,200 x mm. 3,800;

– From 3 to 5 independent cooking zones within the oven;

– Arms supported at two points for maximum load capacity;

– Straight mold holder arms, offset and C completely interchangeable, 1, 2, 3, or 4 airways;

– High insulation of the oven with preformed panels;

– Electronic modular burner;

– Cooling with high-performance fans;

– Operator interface with touch-screen;

– Perimeter consoles for arm movement management;

– Safety barriers and protections according to standards.

Additional info

Depending on the size, the system can be equipped with a different number of fans and digital burners. With the closing of the doors, the tilting movement of the oven and the rotations of the mold begin. This exclusive design allows operators to work at ground level and manage all molding operations from the consoles installed on the machine.  

The rotation of the carts is fully automatic, and the operations required are only those of rotational product extraction and material loading, which are carried out in the multipurpose areas. Offset or straight arms can be mounted on the mold-holder arms for simultaneous production of several rotational items. 

Rock & Roll machines provide sophisticated control of the tilting oven movements in combination with primary and secondary rotation speeds to ensure uniform material distribution, especially for the production of elongated hollow bodies like kayaks or when using rotational molding machines for rotolining.  

Data settings related to durations, temperatures, and rotation speeds are stored for each rotational piece in the production recipe. Due to the size of the products and their weight, the use of powder transport and dosing systems is useful for the best working conditions of the operators and to avoid waste.

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

Gas consumption monitoring

It is possible to install an integrated liter counter with the software to display every 10 seconds on the touch-screen the gas consumption and the actual power of the burner, detecting malfunctions in advance. The system is able to provide aggregated consumption data per cycle, arm, cubic meter, etc.

2-3 Stations (depending on the number of arms)

Cooking and forming of the artifact in the suspended tilting oven; 

1-2 independent and versatile stations for cooling, extraction of the piece, and material loading.
