THE PROJECT PROCESS 


 

Once an idea has taken on a concrete form, we set about transforming it into a 3D data file. On the one hand, this immediately gives us a three-dimensional view of the end product, with the chance to make changes and modifications. On the other, it enables us to build the tool using the available techniques, make prototypes and set up the serial production. The entire process can be delivered in 30 to 45 business days.

Massimiliano Lorenzin, General Manager

The Simplast Group caters for the entire rotational moulding supply chain, dedicating a bespoke, made-to-measure service to every customer, with the highest quality standards and the flexibility that only a small company can offer. This allows our customers to follow the moulding process step-by-step, counting on a team of professionals specialized in every sector. Our technology is, in fact, the result of more than 40 years of working on the machinery and the production processes: an effort that means we are able to handle and study solutions for the trickiest problems. Arriving where others cannot reach.

Project and Design

We receive a design from a customer, or design the part ourselves studying every detail on the basis of specifications. We pay particular attention to the context in which the part will be used, sourcing the most suitable materials, and fixing any issues.

 

Technical drawing

When the idea has been turned into a design, a technical drawing is produced by our team of engineers.

  

3D modelling

The next step is 3D virtual modelling. This is important because the 3D model gives the machines the volumes and properties of the mould from which the part will be produced.

 

Tooling

Simplast has direct control over all the steps in the production of the aluminium or steel tool, using automatic numerical control machines for maximum definition. The tool can be customized during this stage too, and adapted to the customer’s needs.

Prototyping and verification

The plastic material is introduced into the tool in powder form, and heated and turned in the rotomoulding machine so that it is deposited uniformly on the walls to create a prototype. All the technical, mechanical and measurement tests are then performed on the prototype in order to ensure that the product complies perfectly with the project and has the necessary resistance.

Production and homologation

The part is produced in the required material, and further tests are carried out in keeping with current directives, with official approval where necessary by certified bodies.

Post-moulding processing and assembly

Simplast is one of the few companies to handle this part of the process as well. After moulding, parts are taken to robotic machines for finishing, assembly and final testing.

 

Packaging & Shipping

Simplast also follows the post-moulding phase. The packaging is designed in practical, aesthetic components in agreement with the principal in order to maximize storage and transport capacities. Simplast can hold consignment stock of end products, and organize shipments throughout the world.
