Productivity grows with Tebis solutions
Irmamolde mold manufacturer
The fact that Portugal is slowly regaining the confidence of the international capital markets is thanks in no small part to energetic and innovative companies like Irmamolde. The mold manufacturer increased their revenues by approximately 20 percent in 2014 compared with the previous year. According to Managing Partner Belmiro Teixeira, this success is largely attributable to the Tebis software solutions.
From its headquarters in Cavalinhos, Maceira, Irmamolde can look back on many years of experience in mold manufacturing. The company was initially founded in 1990 by its present managing director, Belmiro Teixeira, and his two brothers with two conventional milling machines. The name of the company is also derived from the Portuguese word for "brother," irmão: Irmamolde. The company produces high-quality injection molding tools for the plastics industry, and now has approximately 30 employees. Irmamolde's main markets are primarily Europe, with its traditionally robust automotive industry, and Mexico. Tebis Portugal supports the mold manufacturer directly on-site.
"Tebis is the fastest software in the world for calculating programs, and it has an excellent reputation compared with other software products. With Tebis, we can avoid collisions and create reliable machining operations" – Teixeira summarizes why Irmamolde decided on Tebis. Since 1984, the company in Martinsried near Munich, Germany, has been offering services for mold manufacturers, and today their range of service includes operational advice and consulting in addition to the software. Tebis has developed CAD/CAM solutions that return remarkable results, according to Teixeira. In mold manufacturing in particular, this is of the utmost importance. Teixeira says: "Technology is very important in our industry. We need to be up to speed at all times and continuously take steps forward, otherwise important business opportunities are lost. The software plays a major role. Productivity finally also depends heavily on the performance of the software.”
