Igape visits Seistag facilites

By the end of 2018, the Director of Igape visited SEISTAG industrial facilities. During the visit, the technicians of the company explained the sawing process of SEISTAG. Among the explanations given, the Company shared many details about the innovative processes, all of them focused on adding value to wooden products. The regional press published many details of the visit.

Igape is the Regional Agency for industrial development. It is a Public body, which has contributed to the industrialization of many Companies during the last decades. It has also helped Seistag to expand the industrial process in two directions: to be more efficient at sawing, and to implement technology for drying timber. During the encounter, the Company shared the idea of investing in new industrial processes to be set in the Company in order to produce goods with higher value, which means more local employment.

The Director of Igape showed deep interest on the telecommunication technologies applied to the industry of forest and timber. Those activities are very relevant in the region and could take much advantage from the technical innovations. Regarding this question, SEISTAG is a Company ahead. The manager of the sawmill shared with the Igape Director the “virtual sawmill”. This is currently a website where all the figures of the process can be consulted in real time allowing more accurate decisions. In addition to this, the Company has also developed a TIC system to choose and change the image of the wood surface. This second utility was developed within PINTODECO Project and is open to public access.

cosme data hub


COSME data hub is already available at the internet. It is a new website showing all the funded projects over a virtual map of Europe. Moreover, the web shows a brief review on the project objectives, partners and milestone. You can find details on PRINTODECO project at that website.

The project focused on self production of melamine decorative suraces by means of digital printing is included and mapped in the database of COSME data hub. The Project is among three other funded projects funded at Consumer Orientated Design first call. The other three funded projects are the following ones:

  • BETTAIR LAMP which aims for safer indoor environments by means of anti-pollutant and anti-bacterial demonstrated properties applied to indoor lamps.
  • BIOsenSHOES project, that will develop novel children footwear to monitor motor development and healthy life styles and,
  • VISAGE project, which is focused on developing a virtual sample generator for 3D textile design and virtual prototyping solution. The objective is the integration of production, cost calculation, sales and mobile interaction, for 3D sample preview of new fabric and yarn styles.

As there has been two calls for design based consumer goods, in total there are 10 successful stories involving 27 participating SMEs. You can get more information at COSME data hub. This data hub is part of the communication efforts of Enterprise European Network EEN.
