IPCO is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of premium quality steel press belts used in the production of particle board, MDF, OSB and coated boards. We supply 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.
Our range of belt materials enables us to supply products delivering the optimum combination of tensile strength; elasticity and thermal conductivity; and resistance to corrosion and general wear and tear.
With the market moving towards ever thinner boards - produced at speeds up to 2 500 mm/sec - the need for near perfection in belt quality is intensifying, and we continue to invest in the precision technologies necessary to deliver to the highest standards.
IPCO press belts are ground to a thickness tolerance of just 50 microns (0.05 mm) over the entire belt. 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.
We aim to meet customer expectations and requirements for all products and services, and to minimize our impact on the environment. We do this by implementing stringent quality controls throughout the manufacturing process, from selection of raw materials, through production systems and technologies, to rigorous checking of the final product. We are certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
As well as supplying high-quality press belts, we help manufacturers achieve optimum product quality - an important differentiating factor in what is an increasingly competitive market - through high quality service, while at the same time maximizing press productivity through our engineering expertise
