Environmental Policy TCM, dedicated since its creation to managing its impact on the environment, has been certified with the ISO standard 14001:04. This standard guarantees the highest control, monitoring and law compliance standards in the manufacturing of mortar. TCM Silo Systems Our fleet of tractor-trailers transport the silos to the construction site. When the silos need to be refilled, our tank trucks supply the material on-site.
We are leaders in a market that has become more and more demanding thanks to our desire to continuously exceed and our strictness when it comes to quality. As a consequence of our everlasting strive to adapt to new technologies and to research new formulas and our constant effort to incorporate new products, we are continually becoming more competitive.
A dry mortar mixing plant made up of 12 silos for storing raw material, 16 silos for storing additives and two silos for storing finished product, enable our plant to have a manufacturing capacity that is a leader in the market. Our mortar mixers, which are made using m-tec patented German technology, have a capacity of over three tons and offer an output that allows for production on demand in the most demanding delivery periods. A state of the art automated bagging, palletising and baling line. Cleaning hood for sacks, Redler dust collector, gear motor, extractor hood for bagging dust, vacuum filters, etc. It is made up of three baggers in a row, on the same discharge belt, which offers excellent output. Palletiser and automatic baler leading directly to the pallet loading warehouse (1 pallet = 1600 kilograms or 64 sacks of 25 kilograms).
The laboratory. Equipped with modern systems such as bending and compression presses, climate controlled dry and humidity chambers, planetary mixers, heaters, adhesion meters, entrained air meters, separators with screens, pulse jet separators, shake tables and triple moulds. Silo transport. The silos are brought from the plant to the construction site with silo transport trucks. Afterwards, tank trucks are used to keep the silos filled with material. More than 300 silos for storing product at the site, both gravity and pressure silos, with varying capacity: 24 m 3, 20 m 3, and 6 m 3, equipped with D20, D30, D40, D50 and D100 mixers. Pumping equipment for pneumatically transporting the mortar to the construction site, until a distance of up to 150 meters, both vertically and horizontally.
Three storage warehouses for offices, repair shop, site silos and bagging pallets. A staff of professional at your service with vast experience in the manufacturing, innovation and commercialisation of mortar for construction projects. Management systems audited according to ISO International Standards 9000 and multi-channel customer service platforms (Internet, Call Centre) assure full guidance when purchasing a product.
Merchandise Control The process begins when the merchandise arrives at the warehouse, its state is verified and it is weighed on a scale (scale, Control Centre). Supply Raw material is stored in silos (raw material loaded, blue piping). Plant The plant is where the mixed mortar is made, mortar mixers. Bagging The bagging process is a completely automated process that consists of four phases: filling of the product, moving the product with the discharge belt, placing the product on pallets and final baling.
Loading bulk mortar The transport trucks load the material using the gravity system for it later to be taken to the construction site. Silo transport The silos are brought from the plant to the construction site with silo transport trucks. Afterwards, tank trucks are used to keep the silos filled with material.
Quality certificates The main objective at TCM ® is to apply a philosophy of continual improvement to all of its processes. To achieve this goal, it uses all of the organisation's resources to search for new products. The company Tecnología del Cemento y Mortero, S.L., located in Puente Arce, is the first company in Cantabria (Spain) in the design and manufacturing dry mortar sector to obtain this certificate.
Research and development The fact that TCM is constantly working on researching and developing new products and production processes guarantees that it can meet the demands of the most advanced markets.
Environmental Policy The environmental policy of the company is based on two fundamental pillars of the business culture. These pillars are the social concern with the environment, with awareness and with the participation of the entire staff in this goal and the acquiring of the latest technology in all manufacturing equipment. This mentality has been a part of the company since the day the manufacturing plant started working through a manufacturing process design that is completely piped and automated, which has made it possible for us to receive the ISO standard certification in record time. At TCM we are proud of the commitment we have with Cantabria, where we manufacture our products, and the respect we have for its natural surroundings, which is guaranteed in our Environmental Policy.
