Plastic Part Rotational Molding for the Agricultural Industry
Jer-Den Plastics is a leading supplier of plastic rotomolded parts for the agricultural industry. We are trusted suppliers to some of the best known brands in the agriculture sector, and we have manufactured rotational molded parts in use on farming equipment around the world.
Agriculture is a $13 billion industry that continues to grow. And, as rural work-forces shrink – leaving farmers hard-pressed to find affordable labor – farmers are increasingly adopting technology solutions that can replace human laborers. Rotationally molded plastics are a perfect fit for these new and in-demand agricultural products.
Rotational molding is ideal for agricultural equipment because it is lighter in weight than traditional metal farming equipment. Any time metal can be replaced by plastic, the weight reduction leads to fuel savings for the farming enterprise. Additionally, plastic molded parts are rust proof and corrosion resistant – making them better able to withstand the severe elements and harsh chemicals to which agricultural equipment is often exposed.
Unlike cars, which are produced by the millions, agricultural machinery such as tractors, mowers and threshing machines require relatively small part orders. Yet the parts are typically very large and highly specialized. Rotational molding offers the flexibility to affordably manufacture smaller runs of both large and specialized components.
Rotationally Molded Agriculture Parts & Farm Equipment are Lightweight & Less Expensive
Also, because tractors and mowers are not operated on highways (or at high speeds), they are unlikely to “crash” – so they are subject to less stringent impact standards than cars and trucks. This means that lighter weight, less expensive rotationally molded parts can be substituted for tractor parts traditionally that were previously made of steel.
Tanks and containers of all shapes and sizes are also crucial to agricultural operations, including: def (Urea) tanks, hydraulic tanks, seeder tanks, jetter tanks and liquid storage tanks. Sturdy, watertight and non-corrosive rotationally molded tanks are less expensive and more durable than metal alternatives. And, because of their lighter weight, they are also easier to move or re-position when necessary.
Our engineers have extensive agriculture sector experience. We will work with your design team to help you develop agricultural products that are functional, durable and aesthetically pleasing – at a price that is lower than other manufacturing techniques. We understand the unique challenges and opportunities presented by the agricultural industry and we have the skill, equipment and capabilities to develop the solutions you need.
