All bins in this category are rotationally moulded.  This method of manufacture is very slow when compared to injection or blow moulding, but speed is not everything.

As tools are generally made from sheet metal, they are relatively inexpensive when compared to injection or blow moulded products.  This means that we can quite readily design and produce bins to your specification should quantities prove viable.  Usually 100 units is a good benchmark.

The main benefit of rotationally moulded bins is that they have very good impact resistance properties as the plastic resin molecules are loosely bound due to the nature of the slow moulding process.  The bins tend to be used more in the primary sector, especially for byproducts such as petfood, renderables, hides and skins, bulk ice, and waste.

Bins in the above applications always tend to have a harsh life in a harsh environment, and rotationally moulded bins usually fare better than other plastic bins moulded by different methods.

Rotational moulding is also better suited to produce pallet bins over 800 litres due to the investment in machinery required to injection mould, or blow mould products of this size, let alone the cost of tooling which would be in the millions.  All of the plastic water tanks over 600 litres that you see around the countryside are all formed by rotational moulding for this reason.
