BRIEF PRESENTATION

ImoInov is a company from Imoplastic Group which aims to create new production processes with the purpose of playing an active and innovative role, always attentive to the market’s demands and challenges. Founded in 2020, it was created to offer support to its clients, both in the pre-sale and after-sale of the moulds, while investigating and researching innovative methods and techniques for the manufacturing of moulds and injection of plastic parts. It works as a bridge between the internal experience of its organization and its clients in solving and monitoring the challenges encountered before, during and after the manufacturing of the moulds. It has a specialized team that gives technical support for quotations, in order to be an added value on mould design through its DFQ (Design For Quotation). It also offers support in decision-making through the detection of possible problems during the quotation process.
Having the responsibility of representing Imoplastic Group as a whole, ImoInov intends to be an advantage in supporting and innovating projects.

SERVICES

INVESTIGATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF PROCESSES IN THE DESIGN OF MOULDS

It investigates the best materials to use for the manufacture of the mould, always considering the required quality of the final part and the quantities to be produced.

MAINTENANCE<br>AND ADJUSTMENT

MAINTENANCE
AND ADJUSTMENT

It works as a bridge between its clients and the internal experience of its organization, offering technical bench support to the producers of plastic parts.

It monitors and solves possible problems encountered in the moulds in production, namely in maintenance and tuning.

It performs Bench Services and Moulds Repair Services at the Client’s facilities, upon previous analysis of the situation.

CONSULTING<br> AND TRAINING

CONSULTING
AND TRAINING

It answers its challenges through consultancy and technical advice, where the technicians meet the client’s interests to investigate the problems in the mould and determine an action plan. It also carries out structural analysis / fatigue / wear studies in the moulds manufactured by Imoplastic Group or as a customer service, if the client requires.

Optimizes existing processes and investigates alternatives which increase efficiency in mould manufacturing. This innovation of processes allows the improvement of manufacturing processes which make them better, faster, and cheaper.

It answers its challenges through consultancy and technical advice, supported by Rheological Analysis of the Process of Injection - Filling - Compaction - Warping - Cooling.

It also invests in training with the intent of offering its employees with knowledge in new areas to provide a better service to the client.
