TONAN SEIKI CO.,LTD.

Industry Steel / Nonferrous metals / Metals
Job description Mold related parts production
Model COOLEX-1
Location Aichi prefecture
Interview contact Shinichi Nishimura, Manufacturing Dept. Plant Manager
Background
We do mold repair welding work. Because we work with large metal molds preheated to 300°C while doing the welding work, we are constantly blasted by the heat. Because wind adversely affects our work, we could not use a blower or an air conditioner, so we were having a lot of difficulties battling the heat which therefore limited us to 30 minutes at a time because of its intense heat.
Circumstances
We conducted tests at our site using demo models. There were three of us doing the testing and we all rated them highly on their cooling ability. We hung the connecting hose from the welding gantry. We therefore had to change the connector on the COOLEX clothing to a special specification. We purchased five COOLEX system sets, one for each employee.
Effectiveness
Cooling effect is overall very good. To maneuver the hose better, we are considering the optional hose balancer. We must first prevent our workers from overheating, but we expect that we will now be able to extend work times.
