It is not simply the high-performance plastics made by Röchling that are more than complex – the tools and machines used to produce them are pretty complicated, too. This is why they are not produced just anywhere. Instead, this job of manufacturing them is entrusted to a team of the company’s own experts. A team of 18 tool makers and six trainees works at the location in Waldachtal alone. Ingenuity and dexterity are the qualities that members of this team need. We met with one of these tool designers – and one of his masterpieces.
