Abstract: Abstract In rotational molding, shortening the cycle time is one of the most important requirements for increasing production rates and reducing product cost. A characteristic feature of the process is that the mold and plastic powder are heated from room temperature to the melting temperature of the plastic and then back to room temperature. In addition, in the vast majority of cases the heat input and subsequent heat extraction occur at the outside surface. In order to improve the heat transfer, this paper …
