ABSTRACT

An Italian woodworking company is looking for a producer of in-line hot presses for wood for developing a new wood-based material of different geometries, under research cooperation agreement. The company is looking for a partner who can implement the compression/pressing of wood-based mixture materials at high temperatures, i.e. between 150-200C (veneer presses are not considered). In particular, rod-shaped or partly flat wood elements should be pressed.


FULL DESCRIPTION

The Italian-based sawmill and woodworking company is specialized in the production of technical wood components, with applications in the construction and interior design industries (e.g. doors, windows, and profile covers).
The company is currently working on the development of new wood-based materials of different geometries. In order to complete the development of the new materials, the company is looking for a partner who can implement the compression/pressing of wood-based mixture materials at high temperatures, under research cooperation agreement.
The sought partner is a manufacturer of in-line hot presses for wood materials up to 1.2 m wide, with pressing temperatures >150C. In more detail, rod-shaped or partly flat wood elements are going to be pressed. Veneer presses are not considered, as their pressing temperature would be too low for pressing the wood-based materials together.
Geometries and shapes of the final product are to be defined with the potential partner.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: The company is looking for a partner who can implement the compression/pressing of wood-based mixture materials up to 1.2 m wide. The in-line, hot presses should be capable of pressing at high temperatures, i.e. between 150-200C. Veneer presses are not considered, as their pressing temperature would be to low for achieving the desired results. Rod-shaped or partly flat wood elements should be pressed.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The partner sought is a manufacturer of in-line hot presses for wood materials up to 1.2 m wide, with pressing temperatures >150C. The partner is expected to implement the compression of wood mixtures into different shapes. In more detail, rod-shaped or partly flat wood elements are going to be pressed. Veneer presses are not considered, as their pressing temperature would be too low for pressing the wood-based materials together.
The type of partnership could be a research cooperation agreement or a service contract for technical implementation, but also other types of partnerships are considered (e.g. manufacturing agreement or technical cooperation agreement)
