The upcoming annual “Hands-on Rotational Molding Workshop” at the Pennsylvania College of Technology is arriving and we are excited to be participating this year. The two day seminar is presented by Paul Nugent, Jerry Ramsey and PIRC staff and is sure to pack a lot of useful theoretical and hands-on training exercises. The Penn State rotational molding center has been in existence since 2000 and has been offering technical research assistance and hands on resources to the North American rotomolding community.

Having partnered with the Association of Rotational molders (ARM) and Society of plastic engineers Rotational Molding Division (SPE RM), Penn State has been able to provide this valuable experience to Rotomolders nationwide.

The advantages gained from the insight into research at PIRC can assist in the evolution of RDI’s goal of continuous improvement. The topics of discussion include new product development, material selection, testing and analysis, custom compounding, process technology and workforce development.
We will be returning with a review of the events at PIRC after May 15th 2013.
