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.
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'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.
Steel press belt being manufactured at the company's production facility in Sweden. Specialised machinery and production techniques are used in the manufacture of steel belts for WBP double belt presses in order to meet the fine tolerances required by this industry.
The company 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.
The IPCO QuickTool range of tools allows fast and effective repair of steel press belts, minimising press downtime and ensuring repairs of the highest standard to maintain maximum board quality.
The latest and most advanced member of this family is the QuickDisc Plus 500, a self contained cutting and welding system that can be used to remove and replace damaged areas up to 480 mm in diameter on steel press belts.
