Project: Australian first: Injection Moulded 2100L Water Tank

Reln specialises in the design and manufacture of surface water capture, storage, conservation and re-use products.

The company has recently completed a significant investment programme of $5m in new tooling and technology used to produce advanced plastic products such as the Slimline 2100 water tank – but which is also applicable to other innovative plastic products.

The challenge was to provide a tank with straight sides, not only in an injection moulding, but in an injection moulding over 2.2m in size and over 70kg in shot size.

This required designing a tool with relatively straight sides and specialised patented demoulding functionalities.

Reln partnered with a world recognised injection moulding machine manufacturer to further develop its patented tie-barless injection moulding machine technology.

The combination of new technologies in machinery, moulding and tooling techniques has allowed Reln to produce products such as the Slimline 2100 Water Tank and supply it to the market at 20 times the speed of the traditional plastic water tank manufacturer and at a reduced cost.

Reln now has one of the most modern injection moulding plants in Australia, with a wide variety of machine sizes ranging from 150 to over 4,000 tonne. This attracts customers seeking reliability of product manufacturing, excellent service, timely delivery and improved manufacturing costs.

According to the company, its investment in technology and their team’s expertise have placed it at the vanguard of the development of large injection mouldings in Australia.
