Processes and Capabilities
Metal MachiningMachining is an intricate and precise process involving cutting materials to achieve a desired final shape and size, producing various parts, tools, and instruments. While metals are the primary focus of machining, a diverse range of raw materials can also undergo this process. Machine shops employ a variety of equipment and tools, including mills, lathes, and drill presses.
Machining Capabilities at RotalocAt Rotaloc, we employ several highly advanced industrial machining methods to produce components with tight tolerances. Our machining processes include:
- CNC Turning
- Screw Machine Turning
- Lathe Turning
- Stamping and Bending
- Wire EDM
- Laser Cutting
- Cold Heading and Cold Forming
Metal Molding, Forming & ProcessingMetal molding, or metal casting, involves pouring molten metal into a mold cavity to obtain a desired shape. The molten metal is heated to its melting point and then poured into a mold, solidifying and forming to the mold cavity. The mold is removed once the metal has cooled and solidified, and the final metal casting is obtained.
Metal Molding, Forming, & Processing Capabilities at RotalocWe specialize in various metal molding and forming methods, creating custom and specialized parts for any application. Our metal molding and forming capabilities include:
- Metal Extrusions
- Wire Forming
- Investment Casting / Lost-Wax Casting

- Die Casting
- Cold Heading, Thread Rolling & Tapping
- Metal Injection Molding (MIM)
- Turning - CNC, Screw Machine & Lathes
- Sintered Metal
- Stamping & Bending
Plastic MoldingSimilar to metal molding, plastic molding is the process of shaping plastic by injecting molten plastic into a mold, forming it into a desired shape as it cools. This process, known as the cooling cycle, is controlled to ensure the plastic part's proper solidification and dimensional stability. The mold is opened once the plastic has solidified and the plastic part is ejected. The plastic molding process produces high-precision complex shapes and works with multiple plastic materials. Due to its efficiency, it is also used for high-volume runs of plastic products and components.
