Solar Plastic Molding
Get rid of your molding energy bill. Make more money, on lower capital costs.
Our solar plastic molding systems use free solar heat from heliostats to make plastic parts, instead of expensive fossil fuel. Our Solar Rotational Molding (SRM®) factories cost just $75,000 – $150,000 complete – just add molds and plastic.

“Did you know that the world’s most advanced rotational molding system (with all these features)…
• two axis, fully robotic armatures
• temperature monitoring on every cycle, standard
• independently-adjustable wall thickness on each part face
• radiant beam heating for precise control
• safe – molding chamber never exceeds 212F / 100C
• easy mid-cycle mold servicing (multi-layer, foaming, etc)
• fast cooling times, no water needed
• available mold vacuum for even faster cycles and reduced porosity
• wide range of resins
…runs from 100% free solar thermal energy? Save 15-25% on every part you make forever, with a lower initial purchase price than traditional systems. Put your factory anywhere – no electrical, gas, or water supply needed.
Systems start at just $75,000, with fully equipped two-chamber systems costing about $150,000. That’s for a turn-key ‘factory in a box’ with two armatures, 30Kw heat source, real-time temperatures monitoring and more. Just add standard rotational molds. You can make tanks up to 550 gallons / 2100L. Need to go bigger? Expanded systems mold 1000 gallon tanks and larger.
If you’re in a sunny location and molding with traditional equipment, you’re throwing money away.
