Continuous study of potential markets for monitoring and acquiring new customers through local and periodic trade missions.
Estimated calculation of the detailed cost of the mould (steel, injection and extraction system, surface finish, time and cost of manufacturing, logistics, tests, among other characteristics) based on the long experience in the manufacturing of moulds.
Once the mould is received, the study and drawing start, primary, in order to define and validate all the technology to be used in the mould. The study shows, for this purpose, the main features of the mould such as: mould dimensions, injection and extraction system and its operating points in the mould, cooling circuit and mould mechanics.
After the draft´s approval by the customer, the steel is ordered and the 3D mould design starts.
One of the most important stages, across the entire project, is planning, which will be perchance GECO's commitment to the customer. A careful and detailed planning of the various stages of production of the mould allows us to meet the dates required by the customer, with quality and organization.
The communication with the client and the carrying out of the planning are the project leader responsibility.
We are always within reach of our customers (email, fax, ISDN, video conferencing, telephone, etc.).
The flexibility of our administrative capabilities allows us to establish, rapidly at any time, the exact stage of production, minimizing errors without loss of time.
Our CAD / CAM department provides 68 jobs at constant updating and training, allowing us to follow-up technology and effectively address complex and diverse projects. Pro-Engineer licenses are available; Cimatron, Unigraphics and Catia CAD and WorkNC, DepoCam and Lemoine.
GECO always requires, for all its projects, high quality steels with quality and warranty certificates as well as for all materials and components used in the project.
High-precision machines are necessary to ensure the quality and rapidity of the moulds manufacturing. We are aware that the quality of the mould determines the quality of the product of our client
High-speed machines with multi tool change facilities, coupled with magazine mounting for electrodes, ensure a 24h continuous production, with dedicated engineers and designers to support this activity.
In order to achieve more complex moulds, GECO has a department of electroerosion and wire erosion.
GECO has a polishing service to ensure a final finish of all the moulds.
The vast experience of our employees and teamwork allow us to manufacture moulds of high complexity and technology, up to 45 ton.
All mould tests are performed and supervised by GECO using the correct materials and suitable injection moulding machines of 65 tons up to 3500 tons, with the possibility of injecting two or more materials, GIT or MuCell, and with the possibility of using gripper systems in the main injection machines.
To ensure the quality of our work, the dimensional control of the mould is systematically done along the main steps, throughout its production. The samples are checked dimensionally using CMMs equipments.
In order to speed up the approval with an immediate inspection, GECO has the following equipments:
GECO has a specialized and exclusively dedicated department to the inspection and preparation of the moulds for the shipment, which is carried out after the mould approval by the customer. With the mould also follows the MANUAL for the mould which comprises:
