Rotational Molding

At Gator, we’re proud to offer cutting edge roto-molded products that are made in the USA at our state of the art manufacturing facility in Columbia City, Indiana. Our in-house machine shop and multiple rotational molding machine are all environmentally friendly, producing minimal waste utilizing up to 100% recycled materials to customer specification. Constructed from a high density polyethylene (PE) plastic, this solution is perfect for military shipping, barrels, outdoor equipment, playground equipment, kayaks and more. We can achieve various thickness, colors and textures while keeping the tooling cost low in comparison to injection or blow molded cases.

At Gator, we’re continuing our commitment to increasing our USA manufacturing, offering our expertise in after molding product assembly to over 3000 dealer around the world.

What is Rotational Molding?

Rotational molding,  also known as “ roto-molding,” is a method of production that forms hollow parts of boundless size. The method produces plastic parts, and is incredibly cost-effective.

Resins are added into a mold that’s heated and rotated slowly, both vertically and horizontally. The concurrent heating and rotation disperses and fuses the resin on the inner surfaces of the mold. This results in a product that contains seamless parts with even wall thickness with more material in corners to absorb shocks and stresses where they occur most.
