Viscount Rotational Mouldings provides expertise in the manufacture and delivery of custom moulded plastic products

Viscount Rotational Mouldings (VRM) specialises in the manufacture of rotationally moulded plastic goods. From the initial conception of the idea, to design – right through to delivery, VRM strive to make the entire process as smooth and rewarding as possible.

29JanRotational moulding is especially well suited to the production of large, hollow plastic parts. A diverse range of forms of all sizes and dimensions are easily achieved.

Tooling is economical and with VRM’s experience, the process is straightforward. Rotational Moulding offers very competitive advantages over other plastic manufacturing process such as injection moulding and blow moulding include but not limited to:

  • Affordable low production runs.
  • Rapid mould fabrication – enabling end product delivery sooner.
  • Fast, simple de-moulding procedures.
  • A multitude of colours are available, while changes of material can be achieved without any waste associated with purging of machinery.
  • Material (shot weight) use is optimised for maximum efficiency with minimum waste. A technique such as insulating parts of the mould to prevent the formation of material where it is not required is one such example.
  • Low-pressure manufacture reduces moulded in stress, material flow lines, ridges, etc.
  • Wall thicknesses are consistently uniform. Wall thickness can be achieved that are thin in comparison to the parts overall size and shape, providing economy of raw material use.
  • The process is very flexible allowing for a variety of surface textures, mould in graphics, insert plates, etching and a host of other decoration and markings to be moulded into the part.
  • Inserts are an easy addition, saving on secondary operations time and ensuring integral strength of fittings, valves and joins.

Your needs are the driving force in our product development. At VRM, we offer the ability to turn good ideas into great products, utilising the rotational moulding process.

To assist our customers, VRM offers the latest design and moulding technologies with the capability of producing parts that range in size from 2 Litres up to 25,000 Litres. Rotational moulding is an incredibly versatile process. The choice of materials is equally diverse with the entire colour spectrum available.

Cost effective tooling and the ability to produce economical small production runs, gives VRM the means to supply what you need, on time and within budget.

Product Spotlight: Viscount Rotational Mouldings New 600×600 Pit March 16th, 2016

14nov01Designed to satisfy the electrical, drainage and rail markets

The 600mm X 600mm X 900mm Pit is designed to satisfy the electrical, drainage and rail markets. Manufactured from UV stabilised black Polyethylene, this Pit is both durable and lightweight.

VRM’s 600’ Pit is designed to be used with a Class B galvanised steel lid or grate. The Pit can accommodate two pipes of 100mm diameter, with a belmouth fitting, passing through the lower portion of the sidewall. Also a 150mm diameter pipe can be used in the top section of the Pit in between the ribbing. The height of the Pit can be reduced utilising the two cutting guides in the lower section.

The height of the Pit can also be increased, by using the top half of an additional Pit to create an extension collar. That will then be fitted on top of the original Pit.

Celebrating Viscount Rotational Mouldings’ contribution to Peninsula Link with Brekkie! March 16th, 2016

13nov01

AUSGROUP and ABIGROUP acknowledged the hard work and contribution that Viscount Rotational Mouldings’ (VRM) team has made to Peninsula Link’s Noise Wall project with brekkie for all.

The Noise Wall, which is being manufactured by VRM, is being installed along the new 27 kilometre Peninsula Link, (the new road that runs from Eastlink in Carrum Downs to Mount Martha) ensuring that noise pollution is kept to required standards.

Approximately 5,000 Noise Wall panels have been and will be manufactured for the project.

Viscount Rotational Mouldings leads by example on water saving. March 16th, 2016

8novVRM’s water tanks

Viscount Rotational Mouldings’ manufacturing plant in Carrum Downs is now capturing storm water and using it for the flushing of toilets onsite.

Prior to the installation of rainwater tanks the factory was using approximately 3,500 Litres of mains water per day, an average of 47 Litres per individual.

Due to the introduction of the rainwater tank storage system, usage of mains water has dropped to 451 Litres (just over six Litres per person, per day).

Every day an average of 3,049 Litres is saved from mains water usage.
