Fibre & Textiles

Tool-Temp expertise provides precise and consistent control of temperatures in demanding roll applications.

Carbon fibre pre-preg machinery

Tool-Temp were contacted by a Carbon fibre pre-preg machinery supplier based in the north of England to work alongside them supplying temperature control for roll applications requiring very close tolerances across the roll faces and around the rolls. Whilst temperatures were well within the Tool-Temp range due to the large surface area of the roll, a high flow pump was required.

A 48kW TT-500 unit was selected for the process with a pump capacity of up to 260l/min. The unit was also fitted with our fully interfaced profibus controller to allow ramped heating and cooling all of which is controlled via central Siemens system.

Since the first application we have now supplied several more lines to the customer and in all instances Tool-Temp worked very closely with the customer's Team to ensure that the equipment supplied was the most suitable to meet their processing requirements, and to give them the improvement on their processing conditions they required.

Textiles manufacturing

Tool-Temp has provided effective temperture control solutions for established leading UK textile manufacturer. Our engineers were called in to discuss oil heating for a large roll used in their fabric coating process. The roll surface temperature required was 185 ºc and due to the large surface area of the roll a high flow pump was required.

A 48kWTT-500 was selected for the process with a pump capacity of up to 260l/min. The unit was also fitted with an auto-start timer to facilitate automatic roll heat up prior to start up of production.

Sometime later a second line was installed again needing oil heating on two large rolls. On this occasion the most suitable units were the models TT-508 48kW and TT-708 72kW – again both with high flow pumps and capable of operating up to 300ºc.

On both occasions Tool-Temp worked very closely with the customers Operations Director to ensure that the equipment supplied was appropriate to their requirements, and provided the targeted improvements to their processes.

Golf Day’s

Since 2007 the team at Tool-Temp have been putting on a Golf Day that takes place in June of each year. The day always begins with coffee and a bacon roll followed by 9 holes of golf and lunch in the club house. The teams then head out for a round of 18 holes and come back to a three course meal. Tool-Temp offer accommodation to all the customers and some even join the team for a few drinks in the local town afterwards.

The golf day is a lot of fun and is held so that all our customers can get to know each and every member of staff from the receptionist to the managing director. We believe this makes future business easier and more enjoyable. .

Our customers say ‘it is always great to put a face to a name’ and ‘Tool-Temp always put on a great day, I have attended every year and I wouldn’t miss it for the world’ we hope to continue this fun day out for many more years. If you’re a keen golfer get in touch.
