A "Big Family"

REP international counts around 170 employees in France.
Many of these employees spent their entire professional carrier at REP. This loyalty is linked to the diversity of the jobs offered by REP, but also to the fact that they simply feel good with REP, just like a "big family".

 

Staff Rejuvenation 

To perpetuate the technical know-how and expertise of the company,  CEO Bruno TABAR and his managing teams have chosen to trust and promote young people by implementing the policy of tutoring and internship.

 

Apprenticeship and Internship

With this in mind, REP often employs recent graduates and/or fosters on-the-job training contracts. These young people benefit from the experience and know-how of their seniors who coach them throughout their educational development in the field until they are able to stand on their own feet.

This philosophy is meant to

  • keep REP's knowledge alive,
  • enhance it,
  • refresh it thanks to the newcomers,

as the technologies and processes, approaches, languages, etc... are continuously changing to cope with the fast-growing requirements of the international markets.

 

A Win-Win Relationship

  • For the company it is a pool of young talents to train "on-the-job" 

  • For the young people it is the opportunity to gain initial work experience in a medium-sized company, worldwide leader in its field.

Team spirit

As a market leader, REP is used to pave the way and attaches great importance to knowledge sharing and intergenerational links.

REP capitalizes on team spirit, which could be qualified in a few words:

« Working together for the success of all »

 

 

 

CMX compact multistation :REP rubber injection rotary presse

 

The New Generation of Multi-Station Injection Moulding Presses is available 

Much awaited, the first CMX machine was already shipped to a North American Customer 

 

Why is it Called CMX?

CMX replaces the former CMS machine (Compact-Multi-Station)

where X stands for 10 in Roman numerals  (because of G10!)  and mirrors the cross-shaped machine design with its 4 work stations.

 

The Utmost Solution by REP with Optimized Efficiency

 

The CMX is intended for highly profitable large-scale rubber part productions.  It integrates the automation technology of the latest generation 10 including all 4.0 functions for increased profitability and production management.

The multi-station design allows simultaneously combining the injection, curing and demoulding processes, thus leading to a 90% increase in productivity when compared to a single station press and a 68% increase in productivity compared with a press equipped with a double plate stripping kit.

The reduced number of mould cavities makes automation easier, reduces tooling costs and helps better controlling the injection and curing settings.

 

A Highly Flexible System

 

  • Injection of different shot capacities on each of the 4 moulds,
  • Use of different moulds, 
  • Operation with 1, 2 or 3 moulds.
  • Particularly fast mould change (10 minutes for all 4 moulding tools)
