Last August, Incipresa participated as sponsor in the OBA 2023…
INCIPRESA, the leading company in Spain in the design, manufacture and maintenance of rescue, firefighting and civil protection vehicles, had the honor of receiving important authorities from the Xunta de Galicia and representatives of organizations such as ICEX, IGAPE and GAIN at its facilities to see first-hand the great progress of the Eco-Sustainable Fireproof Bodyworks project ( CIES).
Among the guests, there was the presence of the General Secretary of Industry of the Xunta de Galicia, Nicolas Vázquez, and the Mayor of Mos, Nidia Maria Arévalo, as well as Feli Rodríguez, Councilor for Industry of the Mos city council and Patricia Pérez Martínez and Norberto Penedo Rey, Territorial Director of ICEX-Galicia and Director of the Competitiveness Area of IGAPE respectively, also accompanied us Patricia Fernández Liz, Director of the GAIN Services Area.
The main purpose of this visit was to present and explain the CIES Project (Eco-Sustainable Fireproof Bodyworks), an R+D+I project developed as part of our innovation and continuous improvement strategy, which will mark a radical change in INCIPRESA’s production model and will place it at the forefront of technology, turning it into a 4.0 company.
Research, development and innovation have led INCIPRESA to adopt 3D printing technology as a cutting-edge change in its production system. The CIES Project represents a revolution in the fight against fires, thanks to the power of 3D printing in the manufacture of fire trucks.
The use of 3D printing in the manufacture of fire trucks represents a revolution since it allows the manufacturing of light and resistant parts, thus optimizing the performance of the vehicles. In addition, it reduces costs by eliminating the need for specialized tools and molds. It also enables the manufacture of structural components such as chassis and bodies, rapid prototyping, scale models, mockups for testing and training, or component customization. These applications demonstrate the potential of 3D printing as a breakthrough technology in the fire truck industry.
INCIPRESA also stands out for its commitment to the Environment, which is why the development of sustainable plastic materials is a priority for the company, with the aim of achieving a more sustainable future. The use of recycled plastics from fishing nets, as well as the improvement in recyclability, have been fundamental focus areas throughout the development of the project. In addition, emphasis has been placed on reducing emissions during the production and use of plastics.
The CIES Project and the adoption of 3D printing as a key technology in the manufacture of fire trucks demonstrate INCIPRESA’s commitment to innovation, sustainability and technological development. The company is positioned as a benchmark in its sector and confirms its leadership in the search for more efficient and environmentally friendly solutions.
Adrián Gómez, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Director of Minx Zeus Spain, and José Otero, General Director of INCIPRESA and member of the company’s Board of Directors, led the presentation of the project and explained the details of its implementation. Also present were Juan Antonio García, Export Commercial Director, Francisco Casado, Commercial Director, Roberto Terrado, Factory Director, Juan Carlos Ares, Quality and Service Director, Juan Diego Lavandera Antolín, CEO Epoltech and Head of the CIES Project, and Pamela Cañón Sánchez, Director of Epoltech.
We are very grateful and satisfied with the visit, and we remain committed to the growth and development of our facilities in Mos, as well as the progress of the CIES project and all future expansions necessary for its industrialization.
