A surgical support cart was chosen Product of the Year by the Association of Rotational Molders (ARM) at the group’s meeting last fall. Molded by American Rotational Molding Group, the cart provides compact transport of equipment required for eye surgery in a design that is easy to move and easy to clean.

The product demonstrates that rotational molding can very often be the most cost effective process, says Gordon Sanden, vice-president of American Rotational Molding. He says structural foam was originally considered for the part, but rotational molding cost 80 percent less overall, and the per part cost is 50 percent lower than structural foam.

Post mold assembly was also a factor in selecting rotomolding. Structural foam would have required seven pieces to be joined after molding, while rotomolding incorporates the seven pieces into one finished part.

The cart is molded of linear low density polyethylene.
