Production Begins on First Automated Rotational Molding System Serving Western U.S.
ASHTABULA, Ohio--One year after installing its first Leonardo automated rotational molding system in its Madison, Indiana facility, the plastics design and manufacturing company MODRoto recently started production on its second Leonardo automated system--and the first to serve the western United States. Installed in the company's La Mirada, Calif., facility, the automated rotomolding system is said to position MODRoto as the only company on the continent operating two of the systems in different facilities to serve customers nationwide.
Purchased from Persico SpA, Nembro, Italy, the automated system reportedly operates faster than traditional rotomolding machines and yields more consistent product quality. At the same time, it's said to require less energy and reduces material waste, offering faster lead times with substantial reductions in overhead. The first product to be manufactured on the system was the company's 72S bulk laundry truck, a new design with smooth, rounded corners, internal ribs, and high strength at a light tare weight. It enables customers to save on fuel by transporting their standard volume of goods at less weight, according to MOD President Robert Dunne.
"The improvements we made to this laundry cart design would not have been possible to manufacture on other rotomolding machines," says Dunne, whose team recently earned the "Product of the Year" and "Best Large Part" awards in the Association of Rotational Molders International 2008 Rotomolded Products Competition. "We intend to use this new rotomolding technology to supply higher quality custom parts for our customers at reduced costs."
MODRoto (formerly Meese Orbitron Dunne) (www.rotomolding.com) is a custom design and manufacturing company that specializes in the conversion of metal, fiberglass, wood, and other parts or products into integrated, rotationally molded plastic designs. The company operates manufacturing facilities in La Mirada, Calif.; Saddle Brook, N.J.; Ashtabula, Ohio; and Madison, Indiana.
