ROTATIONAL MOLDING SYSTEMS
SETTING WORLD STANDARDS FOR ROTOMOLDING EXCELLENCE!
Our RotospeedTM product range provides the largest selection of model sizes, types and floor plans offered to the rotational molding industry. The RotoCure System Manager© computer control is redefining the molding process.
The Seven ROTOSPEED Machine Styles we design and manufacture are:
Independent-Arm Machines- 15 models with one to four arms, swings from 64" to 218" (1625 - 5537 mm) and weight capacities from 1,000 to 8,000 lbs. (450 - 3650 kg.) per arm.
Fixed-Arm Turret Machines- 6 models with three or four arms, swings from 55" to 120" (1400 - 3040 mm)and weight capacities from 750 to 3,000 lbs. (340 - 1360 kg.) per arm.
ClamShell Machines- 6 models with mold diameters from 30" to 142" (762 - 3607 mm)
and straight-arm weight capacities of 300 to 4,000 lbs (136 to 1816 kg).
Shuttle Machines- 7 models as one-, two-, or three-arm machines, with separate oven and cooling chambers. Swings from 94" to 240" (2387 - 6098 mm) and weight capacities from 3,000 to 7,000 lbs. (1363 - 3181 kg.) per arm.
Rocking Oven Machines- 7 models with mold diameters from 60" to 95" (1520 - 2400 mm) and mold lengths of 166" to 262" (4216 - 6654 mm).
Vertical Machine- a self-contained three-arm, three-station model.
Laboratory- three models of multiple station machines.
machines with four-arms and five-stations. Ferry Industries pioneered the
first four-arm, five-station, independent-arm machine for the rotomolding
The RotospeedTM independent-arm machines (with each arm on a separate cart) provide a multiple-station arrangement for heating, cooling, loading and unloading operations. Each cart indexes about a center pivot post and shares a common load-bearing track. The floor plan provides five process stations:
Two independent-arm machines
are shown here; RS4-2400 with a swing of 96" and a weight capacity of
2,400 lbs., and an RS3-5000 with a swing of 200" and a weight capacity
of 8,000 lbs.

ROTO SPEED MACHINES
TURRET machines provide increased processing capabilities while promoting
the most efficient use of labor. Ferry Industries has expanded the capabilities
of the traditional turret machine to meet the production needs of the user. Five direct-drive RotospeedTM
turret-style configurations are available.
A turret machine has all the arm assemblies fixed to a common indexing turret. Indexing the turret from station to station will result in all the arms moving to the next station. RotospeedTM Turret Machines are available in two versions:
Three-Arm & Four-Arm Versions
A three-arm turret machine
is generally used in applications where the oven (1), cooling (2), and servicing
(3), cycles for the parts on each arm require relatively equal process
time. Four-arm turret machines are used where one part of the process (heating,
cooling or servicing) requires up to twice as much time as the other functions.
