Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9956930A1] A multiaxis rotational molding apparatus (11) includes a support portion (12), a molding portion (13) and a control portion (14). The support portion includes an upstanding arcuate frame section (16). The molding portion includes an upstanding arcuate mold supporting assembly (17) disposed within and spaced from the arcuate frame section (16). A mold assembly (19) includes separable mold sections (18) forming a substantially enclosed mold cavity (20) carried within the mold supporting assembly (17). The control portion (14) includes drive assemblies (23, 24) arranged in a preselected configuration adjacent the arcuate frame section (16) selectively energized in coordination with adjacent drive assemblies (23, 24) for movement of the mold supporting assembly (17) in a preselected profile. Programmable memory (30) stores preselected operating parameters. Monitors (32) sense operating information from control components. Circuitry transmits signals from the monitors to a coordinator (31) comparing the operating information with operating parameters stored in the memory (30) to control rotation of the mold supporting assembly (17) in a preselected rotational profile.
