Tool-Temp AG high-performance partner of Stüdli Plast AG

Tool-Temp AG spoke with Ardit Kamberi, Technical Manager of Stüdli Plast AG, about the temperature control of injection moulds, the challenges in the production process and the development of the plastics industry.

Stüdli Plast AG, based in Romanshorn, Switzerland, has been supporting industrial customers in the realisation of technically demanding innovations in various industries since its foundation in 1954. Decades of tradition and the expertise gained from a wide range of projects make Stüdli Plast an innovative and efficient partner for all needs relating to plastic injection moulding. With its subsidiary Grischa Plast AG, Stüdli Plast has built up an even stronger sales network, which offers customers considerable advantages. The temperature control units of Tool-Temp AG are used throughout the production of plastic parts. A large number of units are already in daily use.

For many years Tool-Temp AG can count the company Stüdli Plast AG among its valued customers. Four TT-142 N pressurised water units are in daily use and recently a TT-54’500 cooling unit with a cooling capacity of 54 kW was put into operation.


1. What exactly is tempered at Stüdli Plast?

Injection moulded plastic parts weighing 3 – 3000 grams are tempered. The temperature range to be covered is between 140 °C and 220 °C. In addition to the heating function, cooling also plays a decisive role so that a constant temperature of 10 °C can be supplied to the production process and maintained. This is achieved with the Tool-Temp cooling unit TT-54’500.

2. What is the challenge of producing plastic parts?

Customer requirements are becoming increasingly greater. In addition to function, appearance is becoming more and more important. Producing a finished product from the granulate that meets the customer’s specifications is a major challenge. This requires reliable functioning of the peripherals, such as temperature control units. Only then can the narrow process windows be adhered to.


3. How has the plastics industry developed since your company was founded in 1954?

The plastics industry, like many other industries, has become much faster moving due to globalisation. Only a few weeks are needed from the 3D drawing to the finished product. The digital tools enable an almost perfect visualisation of the problems that could occur in the real process. In this way, these problems can already be counteracted in mould making. In recent years, the sustainability of the use of resources has developed significantly.


4. How do Tool-Temp units simplify your production process?

Due to the integrated controller and the strong pump power, the Tool-Temp units are easy to operate, reliable and very robust. This guarantees us a safer production of the products.


5. We are very grateful for our long-standing good business relationship. What brought you to Tool-Temp years ago?

The flexible and targeted cooperation led us to Tool-Temp. In addition, Tool-Temp is located close to Stüdli Plast. Tool-Temp has always been a high-performance partner for Stüdli Plast, even in situations where everything must be done quickly.
