Camteam Oy, a Nordic injection molding company, adopts Vaisala's state-of-the-art humidity sensors to optimize its drying processes.
Camteam Oy, one of the leading multi-component plastic molding companies in the Nordic region, announces a significant improvement in its drying processes thanks to the incorporation of advanced moisture measurement technology, the Vaisala Indigo80. In an industry where the demand for precision and durability is constantly evolving, Camteam is committed to meeting its customers' growing quality expectations.
Optimizing multi-component molding processes
Camteam Oy recognizes the challenges posed by rapid innovation in the plastic molding industry, including the growing need for polymer combinations to meet customer demands for precision and durability. Multi-component injection molding is becoming the norm, involving the combination of different plastics in a single part. To maintain high quality standards with minimum variation, continuous and accurate moisture measurement data is essential, especially for hygroscopic materials.
The solution: high-precision humidity measurement with Vaisala Indigo80
In its quest to optimize drying processes, Matti Majava, injection molding specialist at Camteam, collaborated with Vaisala in 2022 to explore more accurate moisture measurement solutions. The result of this collaboration is the successful adoption of the Vaisala Indigo80, a portable humidity measurement instrument that offers high accuracy in dew point verification at various stages of the mold injection process.
"The Indigo80 is designed to spot-check the dew point at different stages of the mold injection process, and we really appreciated its ease of use and the fact that it has all the features we need. It's portable and easy to hold during measurements."says Matti Majava.
Camteam's teams have also expressed their openness to continued cooperation with Vaisala for the ongoing development of their processes.
