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.

Facing results

On Tuesday 2018 the 19th, the Partners of PRINTODECO Project meet at TORCULO facilities in Santiago de Compostela. During the encounter, the four Companies reach decisions on how to finish the work supported by the Program Customer Orientated SMEs from EASME. They reach two main agreements.
From one hand, the Partners agree that the milestones of digital printing service validation has been achieved. Right now, it is possible to choose from a list of references, add customization with different tools and get a piece of furniture produce on demand. The ambition of the service has been sized to a realistic demand, focussing in SMEs rather than on final Customers. This means that a furniture producer can develop a new model easily, wasting less time and resources than before PRINTODECO.
On the other hand, the Consortium members agree to increase the communication and dissemination activity. The Partners agree to provide information on what are the results and how it was made. For this action, they proposed a communication plan based on social webs. It will be mainly developed by TORCULO and LOGISIETE. In addition to this, the Partners will also release a video showing the digital printing service in real environment. This will made understandable how the designer of a SME can create a new pattern and get a kitchen placed at the window screen of its Company in just one week.


Digitally printed melamine boards would not be possible without the help of high tech SMEs such as Imatia, Inkromatic and Parqueweb. PRINTODECO partners started cooperation with those companies in 2015. They provided technological support and advice based on their prior experience. The collaboration was based on a Research and Development Project boosted by CDTI. CDTI is the Spanish Agency for Industrial and Technological Development.

Imatia is a SME specializes in rapid software development for companies and public administrations. In addition to serving as a basis for customer software development, Imatia offers this technology to companies or departments that want to develop high-quality application, either for internal use or for distribution.

Inkromatic is a SME focused on ink supply and technical support to inkjet printing. They take part in major shows such as CPRINT in Madrid. They are one of the major suppliers in the northwest of Spain.

Parqueweb is a SME developing on purpose software. They have large experience with e-commerce tools. They also provide technical support to PRINTODECO Project. Note that the customization tool of the project was developed with the collaboration of SEISTAG and Parqueweb.

The collaboration with these SMEs helps PRINTODECO to resolve many technological problems and receive qualified support of professionals.
