About us

IPCO is world-leading manufacturer of steel press belts and a company with a heritage of manufacturing quality and innovation extending back more than 100 years. We manufacture and supply premium quality steel belts for the high productivity manufacture of wood based panel products.

Our precision-engineered belts are at the heart of press systems used for the production of WBP products including particle board, MDF and OSB. And as an independent company within the Wallenberg group with 600+ employees and a global network of more than 35 sales and service offices, we support machine builders and end users around the world.

  • Precision engineered belts for premium quality end products
  • Belt thicknesses from 1.2 to 3.5 mm, and widths up to 4 620 mm
  • Global presence with local expertise for maximum press uptime
  • IPCO QuickTools for efficient installation, maintenance and repair

Products and services

IPCO supplies press belts in three main steel grades to suit different requirements - 1100C, 1500SM and 1650SM - and can produce belts in thicknesses from 1.2 to 3.5 mm, and in widths of up to 4 620 mm.

This enables us to deliver the optimum combination of tensile strength; elasticity and thermal conductivity; and resistance to corrosion and general wear and tear.

With the move towards thinner boards produced at up to 2 500 mm/sec, the need for near perfection in belt quality is intensifying, and we invest in the precision technologies necessary to deliver to the highest standards. For press belts wider than 1 500 mm, two or even three single belts are welded together longitudinally to create a belt of the required width. We continually work to improve the tolerances we can offer - thickness deviation, flatness and straightness - and our ability to meet demanding delivery schedules.

IPCO global service support

IPCO's Global Service Support team can provide a rapid and efficient response to press belt issues anywhere in the world. As well as carrying out repairs, engineers help manufacturers achieve maximum ROI through planned maintenance and preventative work.

We also support customers through on-going programmes of technician training. By passing on the knowledge and expertise to carry out maintenance in-house, the risk of unnecessary downtime is substantially reduced.
