Use of radiotelemetry to monitor and control the temperature of the concept tooling during the rotational moulding process cycle

Use of radiotelemetry to monitor and control the temperature of the concept tooling during the rotational moulding process cycle enables more accurate control of the process.

The current state of the art in rotational moulding uses large hot air ovens to heat the tooling and forced cold air or cold-water spray to cool. This is only around 90 percent energy efficient, so increased control of the tooling temperature and use of the direct heating will improve energy utilisation.

The use of radiotelemetry to monitor the tooling temperature is not possible when the ovens are used as the signal cannot pass through the steel walls, and the sender unit cannot withstand the temperatures in the oven. The novel concept tooling allows this technology to be used successfully.
