The Consortium

The iCAD project is being developed in the context of a consortium that integrates five companies that are active in the value chain of molds (Distrim2, Distrim, 3DTech, Moliporex and MPTool). All industrial members of the consortium belong to the VangestGroup, working with a prestigious entity from the national R&D network (CDRSP from the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria ), adding important "know-how" in the technical area of the molds. Partners will collaborate on the development of software to support the mold industry, with "know-how" of the highest scientific quality in the area of product development. The project's leader is Distrim2 Ltd, a company with very high experience in mold industry and a strong curriculum in R&D and innovation.
