Challenge. Solution. Result.


Dis­cov­er ex­am­ples of our project work. And join us in tak­ing a look in­to the fu­ture. Be­cause fur­ther projects are cur­rent­ly open­ing many doors to new mar­kets for hotset — cur­rent­ly al­so in the field of fu­el cell tech­nol­o­gy. Here, the fo­cus is less on heat­ing and more on com­plex ther­mo­dy­nam­ic so­lu­tions that fo­cus on in­tel­li­gent tem­per­a­ture control.

hotset offers engineering and development services and is an outsourcing partner for complete value chains

Example 1

The chal­lenge:
In a pro­cess­ing op­er­a­tion, too high tem­per­a­ture dif­fer­ences led to de­vi­a­tions that did not meet the customer’s qual­i­ty requirements.

The so­lu­tion:
De­vel­oped and man­u­fac­tured a plug-in sys­tem. This was fol­lowed by as­sem­bly in the con­vey­or line of the man­u­fac­tur­ing plant.

The re­sult:
Ho­mo­ge­neous tem­per­a­ture con­trol: A uni­form heat trans­fer to the ma­te­r­i­al to be heat­ed was achieved.

Example 2

The chal­lenge:
Sig­nif­i­cant qual­i­ty im­prove­ments in thermoforming.

The so­lu­tion:
hotset de­vel­ops ap­pli­ca­tion-spe­cif­ic heat­ing plates for the pro­cess­ing of pack­ag­ing films, which are used as a re­place­ment for the pre­vi­ous­ly com­mon stan­dard products.

The re­sult:
A dis­tinc­tive and ho­mo­ge­neous tem­per­a­ture dis­tri­b­u­tion on the films in the dy­nam­ic process and thus sig­nif­i­cant qual­i­ty im­prove­ments in the prod­ucts man­u­fac­tured by ther­mo­form­ing. This con­cept can al­so be trans­ferred to the hot press­ing or seal­ing of pack­ag­ing films.

Example 3

The chal­lenge:
Op­ti­miz­ing the process flow while im­prov­ing prod­uct quality.

The so­lu­tion:
The patent­ed hot­cast ZD sprue noz­zle for zinc die cast­ing, which re­places the con­ven­tion­al cold sprue bush­ing, keeps the melt at melt­ing tem­per­a­ture un­til short­ly be­fore it en­ters the cav­i­ty. The melt­ing point is moved di­rect­ly to the part­ing line.

The re­sult:
The now short sprue re­duces cy­cle time and remelt­ing costs. Due to the melt be­ing kept hot longer, fine con­tours are formed more clear­ly in the cast­ing, the sur­face is vi­su­al­ly im­proved, and poros­i­ty and shrink­age are reduced.

Example 4

The chal­lenge:
Holis­tic qual­i­ty im­prove­ments in the in­jec­tion mold­ing process.

The so­lu­tion:
Con­cep­tu­al de­sign and de­vel­op­ment of the new DH-Sys­tem for tar­get­ed par­tial and dy­nam­ic tem­per­a­ture con­trol of molds in in­jec­tion molding.

The re­sult:
Op­ti­cal­ly flaw­less sur­faces, good mold­ing of mi­crostruc­tures, very thin wall thick­ness­es and the abil­i­ty to heat or cool cav­i­ties very quick­ly se­lec­tive­ly. This al­lows cy­cle times in in­jec­tion mold­ing to be re­duced, which ul­ti­mate­ly leads to an in­crease in productivity.

Example 5

The chal­lenge:
Im­prov­ing the en­er­gy ef­fi­cien­cy of a milk heater (white goods segment).

The so­lu­tion:
Con­cep­tu­al­iza­tion and im­ple­men­ta­tion of a col­lab­o­ra­tive de­vel­op­ment project for a flow heater.

The re­sult:
A par­tic­u­lar­ly en­er­gy-ef­fi­cient and at the same time very eco­log­i­cal de­vice solution.

Example 6

The chal­lenge:
Lo­gis­ti­cal op­ti­miza­tions in the as­sem­bly process of con­trol cabinets.

The so­lu­tion:
De­vel­op­ment of a com­plete­ly new as­sem­bly line for a well-known man­u­fac­tur­er of con­trol cabinets.

The re­sult:
Re­lief of the cus­tomer by tak­ing over the re­spon­si­bil­i­ty for a sig­nif­i­cant part of the val­ue chain.
