Competitive in mold manufacturing
With its modern equipment and dedicated employees, Tebis customer SFR Formenbau processes technologically demanding projects with top quality to ensure maximum customer satisfaction. Given their secure position, they don’t have to worry about competitors in low-wage countries.
SFR Formenbau GmbH in the Swabian town of Reutlingen employs 56 people working in the automotive, small electrical devices and medical technology sectors. Thomas Deuschle, technical manager of the company, explains the positive developments in this mold-making sector in recent years. "Approximately two years ago, we shipped the first 2K mold to a satisfied customer,” says Deuschle. "3K molds have since become a standard for us, and we will soon be tackling the first 4K molds." SFR Formenbau sees its strength in complex projects that customers reward accordingly. Another example of the quality of the manufactured injection molds: a 3K mold for enclosure shells, with the produced parts ready for assembly after only two hours of initial testing. The consistent implementation of the Tebis CAD/CAM systems has also contributed to our solid reputation in the industry. These range from electrode design to simulators and the Tebis NC Viewer, providing data to the machine operators. More on this later.
We fully rely on Tebis NCJob technology for our NC programming.
